What's at stake
The Liberal Arts Championships mark the final competition of the season before nationals, which will be held March 16-19 in Greensboro, N.C. Placing at the LACs determines All-Iowa Conference honors, as swimmers need to place in the top two among Iowa Conference schools in individual and relay events. To earn a spot on the All-Liberal Arts Team, swimmers must place in the top four overall of an individual event or top two in a relay event.
