Day 4 of the 2016 SEC Swimming & Diving Championships are in the books, and both the men’s and women’s meets will come down to spectacular team battles on the final day of competition.

Texas A&M holds a 19-point lead over Tennessee and a 32-point lead over the 6-time defending champions from Georgia. On the men’s side, the Florida Gators, looking for a 4th-straight title, sit just 30-points ahead of their long-time conference rivals from Auburn.

Besides the team battle, the final day of the 2016 championship will also be about Florida’s Caeleb Dressel, now the fastest 50 yard freestyler in history, and seeing how well he can stretch that race into the 100 freestyle. Dressel has already done well in the 100 fly and 100 breast this week, and his targets in the 100 free are a 41.08 for the American Record and a 40.76 for the U.S. Open Record.


We are set up for an absolute thriller on the final day, with the top three teams all within 32 points, or the value of one single individual event win. Texas A&M leads, with Tennessee still second and a hard-charging Georgia team third.

  1. Texas A&M – 847.5
  2. Tennessee – 828.5
  3. Georgia – 815.5
  4. Missouri – 545
  5. Auburn – 538
  6. Florida – 507
  7. LSU – 482
  8. Kentucky – 405
  9. Alabama – 377
  10. Arkansas – 371
  11. South Carolina – 324.5
  12. Vanderbilt – 130


Despite that big Florida win in the 400 medley, things are still surprisingly close with Auburn trailing by just 30. Georgia is all but locked into third place by now, 150 back of Auburn, and Missouri is rolling at home, sitting fourth and narrowly beating out Alabama at this point.

  1. Florida – 982
  2. Auburn – 952
  3. Georgia – 802
  4. Missouri – 673
  5. Alabama – 667
  6. Tennessee – 534
  7. South Carolina – 432
  8. T-8 LSU – 418
  9. T-8 Texas A&M – 418
  10. T-8 Kentucky
