2018 NCAA Division III Women’s Championships – Day 3 Ups/Downs

2018 NCAA Division III Women’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.

Emory continued apace on Day 3, earning 6 ups and 1 down in individual events. Williams was the big winner of the morning, with a net positive of 29 points that could be responsible for taking them past Denison in the fight for third place in the team standings. St. Thomas, Pomona-Pitzer, Amherst, Bates and Johns Hopkins all outscored their psych sheet seedings, as well.

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. 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.
