  • The Virginia Cavaliers, also known as Wahoos or Hoos, are the athletic teams representing the University of Virginia, located in Charlottesville. They compete at the NCAA Division I level (FBS for football), in the Atlantic Coast Conference since 1953. Known simply as Virginia in sports media, UVA has twice won the Capital One Cup for men's sports (in 2015 and 2019) after leading the nation in overall athletic excellence. The Cavaliers have regularly placed among the Top 5 nationally. Virginia leads the ACC with 20 NCAA Championships in men's sports. The program has added seven NCAA titles in women's sports for a grand total of 27 NCAA titles, second overall in the conference out of 15 programs. In "revenue sports", Virginia Cavaliers men's basketball won the NCAA Tournament Championship in 2019, won ACC Tournaments in 1976, in 2014 and in 2018, and have finished first in the ACC standings nine times. College Football Hall of Fame coach George Welsh ranks second for the most wins in ACC history. Other championship programs include men's soccer (7 NCAA Championships), men's lacrosse (8 national titles, including 6 NCAA Championships), men's tennis (159–0 ACC win streak from 2006 to 2016; 2013 and "three-peat" 2015–2017 NCAA Championships), and baseball (winners of the 2015 College World Series). Women's rowing has added two recent NCAA Championships while Cavalier women's lacrosse won NCAA Championships in 1991, 1993, and 2004. Women's cross country won repeat NCAA Championships in 1981 and 1982. In addition to the 27 official NCAA Championships, the Cavaliers have won six additional national championships in indoor men's tennis, two USILA titles for men's lacrosse, and one AIAW title in women's indoor track and field, for 34 total team national titles. Going further back, UVA men's boxing was a leading collegiate program when boxing was a major national sport in the first half of the 20th century, completing four consecutive undefeated seasons between 1932 and 1936 and winning an unofficial NCAA Championship in 1938. The Cavalier mascot represents a mounted swordsman, and there are crossed swords or sabres in the official logo. An unofficial moniker, the “Wahoos”, or “Hoos” for short, based on the university's rallying cry "Wah-hoo-wah!" is also commonly used. Though originally only used by the student body, both terms—“Wahoos” and “Hoos”—have come into widespread usage with the local media as well. (en)
