Fresh off a pair of dual meet victories, the Texas A&M men's swimming and diving team entered the College Swim Coaches Association of America Team Rankings at No. 21.

The Aggies scored victories over Incarnate Word and then-No. 19 LSU, which was A&M's first conference win as members of the Southeastern Conference. A&M beat the Cardinals 139-98 and the Tigers 158-140. A&M enters the Top 25 less than a month before the 2013 SEC Swimming and Diving Championships, which will be contested in College Station Feb. 19-23.

Several Aggies rank in the top 100 on the NCAA's best times list: senior John Dalton in the 50 free (20.29) and 100 free (44.34), junior Kyle Troskot in the 50 free (20.36), junior Omar Enriquez in the 500 free (4:28.00), 1,000 free (9:16.22) and 1,650 free (15:29.34), and junior Henrik Lindau in the 100 butterfly (48.36). Among the Aggie divers, sophomore Ford McLiney and junior Adam Ruiz have achieved their NCAA Zone diving cuts.

Among the Aggie relays, the 200 free relay ranks No. 19 (1:19.98), the 400 free relay ranks No. 32 (2:59.41), the 200 medley relay ranks No. 46 (1:30.80); and the 400 medley relay ranks No. 45 (3:19.70)
