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.

While Queens led the morning of Day 1 with 5 up and 1 down in individual events, and 1 up for their 200 medley relay, the biggest gains relative to the psych sheet came from Carson-Newman (+36 points), Drury (+28), Cal State East Bay (+25), Wingate (+21), and Sioux Falls (+18). Saint Leo, Florida Southern, UC San Diego, Tampa, Grand Valley State, and Wayne State had more difficult mornings.
