Miller, a sophomore at North Carolina, was named the most valuable swimmer at the ACC women's swimming and diving championships after winning three individual events: the 400-yard individual medley, the 500 freestyle and the 1,650 free, in which she had a conference-record time of 16:17.88. Shade, another Tar Heel, became the first freshman to be named most valuable swimmer at the conference's men's meet. He also won three individual events: the 200 individual medley, the 200 butterfly and the 100 fly, in which he set a school record of 48.02 to lead North Carolina to the ACC title for the fourth consecutive year.
