There is lots of alumni support now

in the various social media links, groups of alumni swimmers everyone is very supportive of the program and the team, attendance at meets is a poor gauge because dual meets have become so few in number (and they used to be in Jan/February) and ACC's now with conference expansion are held in Greensboro, Atlanta as opposed to rotating around the conference. ACC's at Maryland used to be a very popular alumni event, but MD left the conference.
There are quite a few who are/remain upset at Littlepage/Oliver.
UVA had swimmers in eras before Bernardino who "qualified for" the NCAA meet, but that was before big time budgets and the UVA athletic dept would not send swimmers unless they had a projected chance to score (which back in the days of 6 in finals, 6 in consols, few did - but I I know at a number of past swimmers e.g. Bernardino, Rollins (backstroker), Greenstreet (backstroker), Lyons (breaststroker) qualified and likely more did.
