2018 NAIA Women’s National Championships – Day 3 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.

Day 3

SCAD Savannah steamrolled ahead on Friday morning, qualifying 12 swimmers for A finals and 4 for B finals. The Bees were especially impressive in the 200 free, where 5 women made the A final and picked up 22 unexpected points over their seedings. Olivet Nazarene consolidated their second-place positioning with 7 ups and 5 downs, while Cumberlands (3 up, 5 down) remains firmly in third.

ONU netted 30 points over their psych sheet seedings to lead the morning. SCAD was up by 14, Loyola New Orleans by 13, and Indiana Wesleyan by 12.
