The University of Iowa was selected to host three NCAA championship events in 2015 and 2016, according to a release.

In 2015, the Campus Recreation & Wellness Center will host the NCAA men’s swimming and diving championships from March 26-28, the Ashton Cross-Country Course will host a 2016 NCAA regionals on Nov. 11 for men’s and women’s cross-country, and Carver-Hawkeye Arena will host a 2016 NCAA regional on April 2 for women’s gymnastics, the release said.

“We are very pleased to be selected as the host institution for these three NCAA events,” Athletics Director Gary Barta said in a release. "We are excited to showcase our facilities for these national competitions. Our staff does a magnificent job conducting championships, and we know our teams will be motivated to try to qualify and compete in front of the Hawkeye faithful.”

The last time the NCAA men’s swimming and diving championships were held in Iowa City was 1927 in the then-brand-new Field House.
