Where are the 2023 Power 5 Conference Meets?

The 2022-2023 NCAA season is in full swing, with dual meets and intrasquads beginning to ramp up in the coming weeks. 

Looking well ahead to the spring championship season, we have compiled where and when the Power 5 conferences are holding their conference meets this year. 

The meet structures are consistent with how they were run last year in terms of being combined or separate. The ACC is the newest conference to make the switch to a combined meet, with last year’s ACC Championships being the first time the meet followed a combined, 5-day format.  

Of note: the SEC will host its championship at Texas A&M, even though the women’s NCAA Championship meet will be at Tennessee. The Big Ten will host its championships at Michigan, even though the men’s NCAA Championship meet will be at Minnesota. Often, conferences that are hosting NCAAs will have their conference meet at the same venue in order to give athletes more experience with the facility.

Weird for the B1G. They have always held their conference meet at the location of the NCAA meet if being held at a B1G facility. Not so this year for the men.

PAC12s and SECs will be interesting. I think we know the outcome of the other 3 already…

The Big Ten? 3 teams in the hunt for that one.

Not really. Ohio State lost a lot in the form of Armstrong, and Michigan has been in shambles due to transfers. No chance those 2 could hang with Indiana and their divers
