The Missouri State men’s swimming & diving team is in search of its first league championship in the Mid-American Conference and will attempt to unseat MAC power Eastern Michigan in Carbondale, Ill. this week. This year’s MAC Championships will be held at the Dr. Edward Shea Natatorium on the campus of Southern Illinois University, March 7-9.

Last year, the Bears finished fourth in the team standings in Oxford, Ohio, and collected two individual champions along the way thanks to first-place performances by Vitalii Baryshok in the 200 free and Jared Roberts in the mile.
