2018 Women’s NCAA Championships: Day 3 Up/Downs

2018 WOMEN’S NCAA 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.

Day 3 Up/Downs

Stanford’s streak of winning every event will come to an end tonight as they didn’t put someone in every final. The do have the most individual A finalists with 8 and the most B finalist with 4, so their overall lead should remain unchallenged. Cal have the second most A finals swims with 6.
