It is the program’s third straight top-35 finish. Iowa was 35th in 2011 before finishing 26th a season ago.
During Saturday’s preliminary round, sophomore Grant Betulius swam to the wall in 1:43.93 in the 200 backstroke, a time that ranks second in the Iowa record books. He finished in 32nd place in the event.
Freshman Roman Trussov competed in the 200-breaststroke, touching the wall in 1:56.93 to finish 24th.
The Hawkeyes had a strong showing at the championship, earning honorable mention All-America honors in the 200 and 400-medley relays. Betulius also garnered honorable mention All-America honors individually in the 100-yard backstroke.
Iowa return to action April 13, hosting the Long Course Intrasquad Meet in Iowa City.
