After Friday night’s session of the 2017 Women’s Big Ten Championships, the score sheet appears to house a battle between Michigan and Indiana for the title and fight between Minnesota and Wisconsin for third. Michigan sits at the top with 805.5, Indiana is second with 791, Minnesota is third with 753, and Wisconsin is fourth with 741.

However, after scoring in the results from this morning (using the average amount of points scored for every performance in the A, B, and C finals), the race between Michigan and Indiana seems even closer, and Minnesota may still be within striking distance of second. The Gophers have more swimmers/divers in A finals tonight than any other team. When looking at the ups/mids/downs below, keep in mind that the 1650 free results are not included, and Michigan’s 1-2 punch of Rose Bi and G Ryan is likely to give them a huge point boost. Michigan also comes into the 400 medley relay tonight seeded nearly four seconds ahead of the field.

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)

Re-check your numbers. Michigan should have 10 B swims, not 2.

Coach Chackett

I think tonight’s relay is the 400 FREE relay.
