Iowa, Greensboro to host 2015 NCAA championships, future hosts selected through 2018

The University of Iowa has been selected to host the 2015 Division I men’s NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships, and the Greensboro Aquatic Center in North Carolina will host the women’s event the week before.

The 2015 men’s event will take place from March 26-28, while the women’s meet is scheduled for March 19-21. This will be the first time Iowa has hosted the meet in its new pool, which hosted men’s and women’s Big Tens in 2012, and the first time hosting for Greensboro, which opened in 2011.

The hosts for 2016 and 2018 have also been announced. Both the men’s and women’s 2017 meets were already locked in for the IUPUI Natatorium in Indianapolis based on a prior agreement with IUPUI.

The 2016 men’s and women’s championships will both be at Georgia Tech, which last hosted both events exactly ten years prior, in 2006. In 2018, the Big Ten got both championship sites: the men will swim at the University of Minnesota while the women will compete at Ohio State. Minnesota hosted both men’s and women’s NCAAs in 2011 (and will host the women’s meet this year), while Ohio State hosted both in 2010.

This is shocking to me. Iowa does not have the deck space or spectator space for such a big meet?

The way Greensboro is running the Junior Nationals (by the way is below par after 1 event) NCAAs are in bigggg trouble!

How in the world did Iowa get a meet of this magnitude? The photo available online seem to support comments that the pool doesn’t have adequate space….men’s NCAA meet the last several years have been held in Federal Way, to Indianapolis, to Austin, to Iowa???? Wow.

and of those pools….they’ve managed to fill up…none of them. Iowa holds 1,200, which based on recent history, is enough. Sad, but true.

Must have been a question of “would you rather fill a 1,200 seater, or half Indy 1/3 full?” Although, I’d expect Austin to be pretty close to capacity, as with Minneapolis on the women’s side.
