Note: Ups refer to swimmers in the A final, who can finish no lower than 8th barring a DQ, and Downs refer to swimmers in the B final, who can finish no higher than 9th and no lower than 16th (again, barring a DQ on the low end).
Headed into the final day of this meet, Cal has opened up a 50 point lead (including all diving), and will have four extra A-finalists tonight to boot. Though there’s still the matter of the 1650 free in the evening which won’t be accounted for in these up/downs, Cal’s Jeremy Bagshaw is the top seed in that race and swimming well, so that won’t help Stanford much (though they should outscore Cal in that event alone, with the 2, 7, 8, and 10 seeds, to Cal’s 1, 14, 17, and 28 seeds. Cal will get more points than seed shows, though, as Adam Hinshaw is seeded in a no time, but will definitely score.
This is Cal’s meet to lose. It’s still close enough where a DQ could cause a big swing,
