History of the program

The men's swim team won ECU's 1st two national championships as well as conference championships in almost every conference we have been in since the program was started in the 1950's (12 consecutive in the Southern Conference during the 60's and 70's).

Men's swim teams have been cut drastically at other schools to the point where 4 teams is what we had in the conference for the most recent title. But the earlier conference championships were won when all or nearly all members had teams.

Also, swimming is a sport that has a very high participation rate among youth. Being one of the largest schools in the state, ECU should continue the program so that NC age group swimmers can continue their swimming careers in college.
