2018 Women’s Pac-12 Championships: Day 4 Up/Mid/Downs

2018 WOMEN’S PAC-12 SWIMMING & 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, 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.

*NOTE: This report does not include diving, relays, or the 1650 free.*

Does anyone know the maximum number of swimmers a college can bring to NCAA championship?

LOL

18 competitors, but that includes divers (one diver counts as half a competitor).

The roster limit is 18 competitors, including uninvited relay swimmers and institutionally funded divers.

Athletes who swim count as 1 competitor.
Athletes who swim and dive count as 1 competitor.
Athletes who dive count as 1/2 competitor.

what does it mean to be an “institutionally funded” diver?

swamfan – the diving qualification was recently changed. There’s a number of divers who are what I would describe as being ‘fully qualified’ for NCAAs, get to go and dive, NCAA pays for it like they do (most) swimmers. Then there are other divers who haven’t scored well enough at Zones to be those fully-qualified, and they can come, but the school has to cover their travel costs.

That’s the short version.

Is it 18 males and females or 18 of each gender?

Of each gender. The NCAA Championships are two different meets, and as far as the NCAA is concerned what one does at NCAAs doesn’t have any impact upon the other.
