(Through 2014 NCAA Championships)

Michigan boasts one of the most storied of swimming and diving traditions. The Wolverines captured their 12th NCAA Championship in 2013, the most by any school in history. Prior to 1937 when NCAA championships had not yet become official, Michigan won seven unofficial NCAA titles for a grand total of 19 -- more than any other varsity-level sport at Michigan. Wolverine swimmers, divers and relay teams have won a combined 165 NCAA titles.

Michigan is also the only school ever to win an NCAA swimming and diving title under four different coaches -- Matt Mann (6), Gus Stager (4) and Jon Urbanchek (1) and Mike Bottom (1).
