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, swimmers qualify for one of three finals heats: the top 8 finishers make the A final, places 9 through 16 the B final and places 17 through 24 the C 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 of any heat in the final.
With that in mind, we’ll be tracking “Ups,” “Mids” and “Downs” after each prelims session. “Up” refers to swimmers in the A final, “Mid” to swimmers in the B final and “Down” to swimmers in the C final.
Swimmers competed in the first preliminary sessions today at the 2018 Pac-12 Championships in Federal Way, Washington. This morning featured the 500 free, 200 IM, and 50 free. After last night’s relays, the Cal Bears established a slight lead over Stanford. Based on the up/mid/down report, it looks like Stanford has a good shot at taking over the lead tonight. Stanford and Cal are far ahead of the pack in terms of A finalists and potential points tonight, but the battle for 3rd could get interesting with Arizona poised to move up. Diving could play a big role in that battle.
