Iowa has been selected to host three NCAA postseason events in 2021 and 2022.

The Campus Recreation and Wellness Center will host the 2021 NCAA Men's Swimming and Diving Championships (March 24-27, 2021). Carver-Hawkeye Arena will host a women's gymnastics NCAA Regional on April 2, 2022. And the Bill and Jim Ashton Cross Country Course will host a men's and women's cross country NCAA Regional on Nov. 12, 2021.

Swimmers warm up in the practice pool at the NCAA swimming and diving championships at the Campus Recreation and Wellness Center on Thursday.

"It's exciting to be selected as the host institution for these three NCAA events," Iowa athletics director Gary Barta said via a release. "This gives us a chance to showcase our facilities and our wonderful community to a national audience."

This will mark Iowa City's third time hosting the NCAA Men's Swimming and Diving Championships. The 2015 championships were at the CRWC Natatorium and the 1927 championships were at the Iowa Field House.
