Townley Haas was a relatively popular pick to win the 500 free. 60% of entries had him first. The other popular choice to win, Felix Auboeck of Michigan, failed to make finals. Sean Grieshop of Cal wasn’t picked by anyone to finish 2nd. Brooks Fail of Arizona (17%) and Jacobo Vargas of Michigan (23%) were relatively popular choices in 3rd and 4th.

The 200 IM saw another favorite deliver. Andrew Seliskar of Cal, the pick of 87% to win, took the title. Andreas Vazaios of NC State (picked by 42% 2nd), John Shebat of Texas (7%), and  Vini Lanza of Indiana (21%) were next.

The 50 free saw the first upset winner of the night. Ryan Hoffer of Cal was picked by only 3% to win the 50 free. Pawel Sendyk of Cal (15%), Robert Howard of Alabama (20%) and Bowen Becker of Minnesota (14%) were popular choices for the minor places.

Y’all should freeze one more row of that thing, so us down tied for 30th can compare real quick how great we’re doing.

I think there is a problem with code you are using in the excel spreadsheet. the code you have for both the running total and day total

but I think it needs to be sumproduct(D$4:DP$4=D8:DP8) and sumproduct(D$4:AA$4=D8:AA8) instead of sumproduct(D$3:DP$4=D8:DP8) and sumproduct(D$3:AA$4=D8:AA8)
I think the way it is set up it might be double counting some people’s entries, as I think I have 5 more points than i should and some of the others as well
