Aggies Set for SEC Championships – Texas A&M Athletics

Championship Central

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. † The Texas A&M women’s swimming & diving team is set to compete at SEC Championships this week at the Allan Jones Aquatic Center on the Tennessee campus. The championship meets Tuesday, Feb. 15 with a pair of relays and diving events, and will run through Saturday, Feb. 19.

Chloe Stepanek boasts a pair of top-30 times in the nation this season, clocking in at 1:45.02 in the 200 free and 4:43.40 in the 500 free at the Art Adamson Invitational. In her SEC Championships debut a year ago, Stepanek brought home silver in the 200 free and later went on to claim the 200 free school record while adding a pair of top-eight finishes at NCAA Championships.

Newcomer Abby Grottle has paced the Aggies in the distance events, clocking a B-cut time in the 1650 free during the fall invitational. Olivia Theall has lowered her personal bests in both butterfly events, going 52.90 in the 100 and 1:57.81 in the 200 at the Art Adamson Invitational in the fall. Bobbi Kennett has clocked three collegiate best times this season, notching B-cut standards in the 100 free (49.44) and 100 breast (1:01.24).

Aimee Wilson will provide veteran leadership for the Aggies on the springboards after earning a pair of silver medals at the 2021 SEC Championships. She has been named SEC Diver of the Week twice this season, most recently after sweeping the springboards for the third time at the Air Force Diving Invitational.

Chloe Ceyanes made her SEC and NCAA Championships debuts last season and has tallied seven top-three finishes between both boards this year. Alyssa Clairmont and Payton Props will also look to add points for A&M. Clairmont recently finished second on the 1-meter and took first in the platform prelim at Air Force, while Props advanced to the 1-meter final at the invite after winning the event the week before against SMU.
