A few days ago, the Virginia Tech Hokies pulled off a massive victory in the pool as the Hokies men’s swimming and diving team, also known as the H2Okies, pulled off a major win by taking down not only Wisconsin and #24 Harvard, but also arch rivals #18 Virginia. This is the first time that the Hokies have beat Virginia in the pool in 33 years and to finally take down UVA is a big accomplishment for the program to show how good they are this year.

The Hokies are only a month away from the ACC Championships in Greensboro but the Hokies seem ready to make a run at the ACC title, especially after the Hokies finally beat the Cavaliers. The Hokies came close last year after finishing second in the ACC but this has the potential to be the year that the Hokies seize their opportunity and win the ACC Championship. The Hokies still have a meet at UNC Wilmington before the Virginia Tech Invitational as the Hokies are definitely going to make sure they are ready for the big stage in Greensboro.
