2018 NAIA Women’s National Championships – Day 2 Ups/Downs

2018 NAIA National Championships – Women’s Meet

For those unfamiliar with swimming terminology, the concept of “Ups” and “Downs” is a good way to track which teams performed best at prelims. In prelims, swimmers qualify for one of two finals heats: the top 8 finishers make the A final, and places 9 through 16 the B final. In finals, swimmers are locked into their respective final, meaning a swimmer in the B heat (spots 9-16) can only place as high as 9th or as low as 16th, even if they put up the fastest or slowest time of any heat in the final.

With that in mind, we’ll be tracking “Ups,” and “Downs” after each prelims session. “Up” refers to swimmers in the A final, “Down” to swimmers in the B final.

University of the Cumberlands led the morning on Day 2 of the 2018 NAIA Women’s National Championships, qualifying 4 swimmers and 1 diver for championship finals, and 2 swimmers for consolations. Loyola New Orleans picked up the most over their psych sheet seedings, gaining 21 points. Indiana Weselyan was up 18 points, and ONU +15. So far that hasn’t upset the balance of power in any significant way, however; SCAD only lost 2 points and is still projected to finish atop the standings.
