The 2012-13 season was monumental for the University of Wisconsin swimming and diving program.

Not only did more than a dozen Badgers earn all-american honors, but the men's squad crowned its first individual NCAA champion (Drew teDuits) in over five decades and the women's team saw Ivy Martin set a Big Ten record in the 50-yard freestyle en route to her Big Ten championship.

It was fitting that the Badgers capped off the 2013 academic year with another memorable moment: a visit from Workaholics star, Anders Holm.

Holm, a 2003 graduate of UW and former member of the swim squad, stopped by the team's facilities on Friday afternoon to visit with the coaches and student-athletes. The Comedy Central comic was in town to deliver the 2013 commencement address at all four ceremonies over the weekend, but found time to reconnect with his former team and many of the student-athletes who were in his shoes just 10 years ago.

@BadgerSwimDive chronicled the visit, while many of the student-athletes quickly turned to Twitter to show their gratitude for Holm. Here is an archived account of the afternoon's events, including a video of the comedian hitting the pool for a relay race with members of the coaching staff:
