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 at the NCAA National Championships, swimmers and divers 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, or score the most diving points, 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.

Queens led Day 2 prelims with 4 up and 3 down, but Drury, Fresno Pacific, and Nova S’eastern are in a tight battle for second place in the team race and so Drury’s DQ in the 400 medley relay had a big impact on the standings. UCSD gained 51 points over their seedings on Thursday, while Carson-Newman was up 29 and Florida Southern, 20.
