After Thursday night’s session of the 2017 Women’s Big Ten Championships left four teams within 32 points, the Michigan Wolverines came back with a strong morning session to challenge the Indiana Hoosiers for a team title.  Anchored by four A-finalists in the 200 freestyle, including Big Ten record holder Siobhan Haughey, the Wolverines put 18 athletes in the top 16 this morning, including nine A-finalists.

The Wolverines are positioned to take the lead tonight, but expect Indiana and Minnesota to stay on their heels.  The Hooisers have a 30-point buffer over Michigan (who took a hit with Siobhan Haughey’s DQ in the 200 IM last night) and Minnesota, and are all but guaranteed at least one title tonight (Lilly King in the 100 breast).  Minnesota, meanwhile, has 11 A-finalists tonight, again partially thanks to a big boost on the diving board (three A-finalists).

Note: Ups refer to swimmers in the A final, who can finish no lower than 8th barring a DQ; Mids 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); and Downs refer to swimmers in the C final, who can finish no higher than 17th and no lower than 24th (again, barring a DQ on the low end)
