The Hawkeyes competed in the 100-meter freestyle, platform diving, the 400-meter free relay, and the 200-meter backstroke, breaststroke, and fly at the Soderholm Family Aquatic Center in Madison, Wisconsin.

In the 200-meter backstroke prelims, four Hawkeye juniors registered season-best times: Kennedy Gilbertson (2:01.45), Anna Brooker (2:02.55), Georgia Clark (2:03.15), and Zoe Pawloski (2:05.28).
