Florida Swimming & Diving in the Southeastern Conference

Both the Florida men's and women's swimming and diving programs have dominated the Southeastern Conference since league competition began, dating back to 1937 for the men and 1981 for the women. The men's team has claimed 33 SEC Championships, eight more than all other league schools combined and 23 more than its closest competitor, Tennessee (10). The women have claimed 15 out of 20 possible league crowns, including 11 consecutive from 1986 through 1997. In fact, the Florida women's swimming and diving program has captured more team titles than any SEC school in any sport. Both teams also boast numerous SEC honors, as the men's history includes 15 SEC Male Swimmer of the Year awards and four SEC Male Diver of the Year selections, while the SEC Female Swimmer of the Year has been a Gator 16 out of 18 times. Florida coaches have also earned 17 SEC Swimming Coach of the Year accolades and six SEC Diving Coach of the Year awards, including five by current Diving Coach Donnie Craine. Combined, the two teams have won 571 SEC event titles and received 175 SEC Academic Honor Roll accolades.
