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 had a strong morning, with 6 ups (including 3 A finalists in the 200 fly) and 2 downs. Drury has shaken loose the competition for runners-up in the team race; their 4 A finalists on Friday were a contributing factor.

Colorado Mesa, Carson-Newman, UC San Diego, and MSU-Moorhead all did better than expected on Friday morning, making for interesting battles for team positioning in the top-10.

Women’s Ups/Downs – Day 3

Note: while the 800 free relay is included here in ups/downs, it is misleading in that it is a timed final, not a prelims/finals race.
