Day Three

It’s final day of the Women’s Ivy League Swimming and Diving Championship at Brown University. The mile is set to begin at 4:00 p.m. but we have the results from prelims.

We had expected Harvard to be way ahead of Princeton by now, so the fact that there are only 30 points separating them will make for an incredibly tense and exciting final session tonight. Columbia, who had great expectations coming into the meet based on their historic dual meet wins, is not only out of the running for Ivy Champion, but is trailing third-place Yale by a fair margin. That will be another exciting battle tonight. Cornell and Penn had better-than-expected mornings.

Here are the Ups/Mids/Downs for Day Three prelims:
