The Seminoles finished 14th overall over the 4-day event in Austin, which concluded on Saturday. California claimed the team title, followed by Texas, Indiana, NC State and Louisville.

FSU quartets claimed All-American honors in three different relays for the first time since 1998. Seniors Will Pisani, Kanoa Kaleoaloha and Emir Muratovic and freshman Jakub Ksiazek claimed fifth place in both the 200- and 400-yard freestyle relay. The three seniors and freshman Izaak Bastian claimed seventh in the 200-yard medley relays.

Pisani claimed second-team All-American honors in the 50- and 100-yard freestyle by finishing 11th and 14th, respectively, in the two events. Kaleoaloha did likewise by finishing 12th in the 100-yard butterfly.

The first All-American honor for FSU in the championships came in the 1-meter diving. Sophomore Joshua Davidson finished 14th overall.
