Auburn men's swimming and diving finishes sixth at the NCAA championships

The Auburn men's swimming and diving team took sixth place at the NCAA championships, which wrapped up at Ohio State on Sunday.

The Tigers finished with 277.5 points. Texas won the meet with 500 points, followed by California (469.5), Arizona (387), Stanford (369) and Florida (364).

Auburn was the defending national champion and had won six of the last seven NCAA titles.

“Our finish in this meet really summarized the whole season for us,” head coach Brett Hawke said. “It was a tough year, but we’re going to take a break and the regroup. We know that we’re a good team and we’ll come back stronger next year.”

Auburn has finished in the top-10 every year since 1993.

The Tigers had four finalists on the final day. Gideon Louw finished third in the 100 free, while Adam Brown was fourth. Adam Klein finished third in the 200 breast, and Kelly Marx took fourth in the diving event.
