Texas A&M to Host 2018 SEC Swimming & Diving Championships

Texas A&M will play hosts for the 2018 SEC Swimming & Diving Championships next February.

The Aggies will have the rest of the SEC come to battle from Wednesday, February 14, to Sunday, February 18, 2018. Last year, the Aggie women won the SEC title in Knoxville, while the men placed 7th overall. It will be the first time that the SEC Championships have taken place in College Station since February of 2013, when Georgia dominated the team race. The University of Tennessee hosted the 2017 Champs.

The SEC Championships continue to be the only known conference meet to span over five days of competition. Like most Division I conferences, the first day is only the 800 free relay and 200 medley relay, though the rest of the events are parsed out to take four days instead of three.

The women will have a month between their SEC Championship meet and the women’s NCAA Championship meet, while the men will have a month between their SEC and national meets. The women’s NCAA meet will be held in Columbus, Ohio from March 14th-17th, while the men’s NCAA championships are slated to take place from March 21st-24th in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
