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 and Drury loaded up with 8 and 4 finalists, respectively, on the final morning of competition at the 2018 NCAA Division II Championships. Queens stuffed the ballot box, as it were, in the 100 free, with 3 up and 3 down, earning 22 potential points more than anticipated. UC San Diego was the biggest winner on Saturday, however. The Tritons’ 400 free relay added 28 points to their psych sheet seedings; they also improved their positioning in the 200 back. Fresno Pacific, Fairmont State, and Drury also landed in positive territory.
