COLLEGE STATION, Texas – The Texas A&M men's swimming and diving team will take 11 competitors to the 2019 NCAA Championships, which ranks as one of the largest national meet rosters in program history. The 2019 NCAA Championships will be contested March 27-30 at the University of Texas.

The NCAA announced six Texas A&M swimmers that received invitations to the national meet on Wednesday -- senior Angel Martinez, juniors Adam Koster, Mike Thibert and Benjamin Walker, sophomore Mark Theall and freshman Shaine Casas.

The six swimmers joined a pair of Aggie divers that had already guaranteed their spots at the NCAA Championships -- senior Sam Thornton and sophomore Kurtis Mathews.

Additionally, the Aggies, who are qualified in all five relays, will take three relay-only swimmers: senior Steven Richardson and freshmen Clayton Bobo and Coco Bratanov.
