2019 NCAA Division III Women’s Championships – Day 3 Ups/Downs

2019 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.

Kenyon and Denison had very strong mornings on Day 3. With the exception of the 200 fly, where they didn’t field a finalist, and diving, where they only scored in the consolation, the Kenyon Ladies will be present in every championship final tonight. They’ll have 2 each in the back and breast, and their relay is seeded first. The relay will be key to their ability to successfully challenge Emory in the title race.

Denison, too, has closed the gap with Emory. While Kenyon trails Emory by 9 points in the projected standings, Denison is only 45 out of the lead. Denison gained 19 points over their seedings, while Kenyon and MIT were up 14.5. Emory was off, -14. Chicago improved by 18; Williams by 16.
