The purpose of Texas A&M University Club Swimming is to improve student health by using the sport of swimming to promote community and competition.
The Texas A&M Club Swim Team was founded in the Fall of 2017 by Jeppesen Feliciano. Feliciano believed there needed to a be competitive, collegiate swim program available to all students at Texas A&M University. The A&M Club Swim Team’s first Executive Board was Jeppesen Feliciano, Connor Schmidt, Courteney Lerch, and Carrson Baldwin. Texas A&M Club Swimming was the first university in the state of Texas to join US Masters College Club Swimming, and therefore be the first Texas-based program to complete at the College Club National Swim Meet. The Aggies traveled to San Marcos for their first swim meet at Texas State in the Spring of 2018. This meet provided the Aggie Swim team with their first meet victories for both the Men’s and Women’s team. This meet also served as the Aggies only meet before competing in the National meet at Georgia Tech. The Aggies went on to place 16th in combined team scores.
