Women’s Ups/Downs

Emory left no doubt about their intentions to secure an eighth consecutive NCAA Division III title at the 2017 Championships. The Eagles had a huge morning on Day One, gaining an extra 32 points over their already dominant position in the pre-tournament seedings in the 200 IM and 50 free alone. Kenyon had a nice pick-up in the 500 free, but gave up a little ground in the medley relay. Washington & Lee had an outstanding relay, and Calvin did better than expected in the 50 free. Bates, Pomona-Pitzer, and Wisconsin- Eau Claire had disappointing Day One outings vis-à-vis expectations.

Below are the Ups (“A” finalists) / Downs (“B” finalists) for the teams who will be on the scoreboard at the conclusion of finals:
