ATLANTA — The University of Florida men’s swimming and diving teams will open up the 2016 NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships on Wednesday night inside the McAuley Aquatic Center in Atlanta. The meet will take place on the host-site Georgia Tech’s campus.

There, a total of 270 participants (235 swimmers and 35 divers) will compete in the championships. Swimmers qualified for the championships by meeting the pre-established times for the events in which they entered while divers competed at a regional zone diving competition where they placed among the top tiers in their events.

Fourteen Gator men will compete through four days and seven sessions of competition, starting on Wed., March 23, and concluding on Sat., March 26. Year-in and year-out, the NCAA Championships hold up as arguably the fastest short-course meet on American soil and the 2016 field will be no different.
