Congratulations to UVA A for winning our mirror of ACF Fall! NC State came in second place with Duke coming third (and winning 2nd place for Div II). We wanted to send a huge thanks to Richard Yu and the rest of the ACF Fall team! We hope everyone has able to make it home safely! Stats can be found here.
