INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. -- The University of Michigan dominated the field at the 2013 NCAA Men's Swimming and Diving Championships to win the school's 54th team national title Saturday evening (March 30). The Wolverines accumulated 480 points to place first, followed by California (406.5) and Arizona (313.5) in second and third, respectively, at the IU Natatorium and IUPUI Sports Complex.

"This is a tremendous accomplishment for our men's swimming and diving program," said Dave Brandon, the Donald R. Shepherd Director of Athletics. "We aspire to win championships at Michigan, and these student-athletes have performed at a high level all season. Mike Bottom and the coaching staff have built a championship program, and this is the culmination of their hard work and effort. Congratulations to everyone associated with the program. We look forward to celebrating their success."

The men's swimming and diving team won its school-record 19th national title. Michigan has won 12 NCAA championships in its history (1937-41, '48, '57-59, '61, '95, 2013), the most by a Big Ten school. Prior to 1937 when NCAA championships had not yet become official, Michigan won seven additional titles (1927-28, '31-32, '34-36).

The Michigan men's gymnastics team was the most recent NCAA team champion for the Wolverines, earning the crown in 2010.
