2018 Men’s NCAA Championships: 1650 Free Heats Live Recap


The first four of five 1650 free heats are being contested right now. Seeing as these are timed finals, anybody from these first four heats can score in the top 16.

The current standings will be updated as each heat finishes. As the team battle rages on, and no Indiana entrants in the mile, keep an eye on Texas and Cal’s milers as they vie for crucial points.

  31. Josh Dannhauser, Auburn 15:07.88

With the early heats done, the top 8 so far are guaranteed to score, even if the top heat beats all eight of them. This was important for Cal, as freshman Sean Grieshop is sitting fourth, and he will finish no lower than 12th (aka, he’ll score at least five points). Nick Norman will race in lane 7 in the final heat later on this evening for Cal, as Texas had no scorers and Indiana had no entrants here.

Poor kid. Does he realize every SwimSwam follower is more concerned about his swim than anyone else’s at this meet?

Doesn’t look like Texas will get any crucial points in this event.

Why not have the 1,650 prelims on the first day and the finals on the last day? The only race is the 800 relay – is there that much overlap?
