Under Bultman, the Aggies have finished lower than second at a conference meet just once and strung together an 11-year streak of top 10 finishes at the NCAA Championships. After four-straight fourth-place finishes at the NCAA Championships from 2013-16, the Aggies tallied their highest NCAA finish ever in 2017 with a third-place effort at the NCAA Championships.
