Day 1 finals recap
Day 2 prelims recap

The Michigan Wolverines continue to roll after starting off the meet last night with back-to-back convincing victories.  With 9 individual swimming A-finalists coming out of this morning’s session, including the top seed in all three events, Michigan will have a big lead after tonight.  If you assume each “up” and “down” swimmer scores the average number of points earned in their respective heat (14.75 points for an A-finalist, 4.625 points for a B-finalist), Michigan adds another 70 points to their lead over Ohio State and Indiana, their closest competitors.

Ohio State and Indiana should be in a fight for second place throughout the weekend (although the Hoosiers may have an edge with extra diving points), while Wisconsin and Minnesota are probably next in line.  Penn State has more top-end firepower, but they will be hard-pressed to move into the top four after their relay DQ last night.
