2018 NCAA Division III Men’s Championships – Day 4 Ups/Downs

2018 NCAA Division III Men’s Swimming and Diving Championships

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.

The last morning was kind to Denison and Emory, with 7 up, 1 down, and 5 up, 1 down, respectively. In addition, both teams outscored their psych sheet predictive standings (+20 for Denison, +19 for Emory). Kenyon, MIT, and NYU all landed in positive territory, but for the Lords it was too little too late. The best they can hope for is a safe relay to keep Johns Hopkins at bay in the quest for the third-place team finish. Meanwhile, Tufts, MIT and NYU are nipping at Hopkins’ heels with their eyes on fourth place. Tufts and Williams also outscored their seedings this morning.

Men’s Ups/Downs – Day 4

Note: while the 1650 free is included here in ups/downs, it is misleading in that it is a timed final, not a prelims/finals race. The 8 fastest-seeded teams coming into the meet are the “ups” that will swim in tonight’s final; the “downs” are the 8 fastest performances from this morning’s session. However, some of the “downs” might actually wind up in the top 8.
