2019 NCAA Women’s Division I Psych Sheets Posted

The official psych sheets for the 2019 Women’s NCAA Swimming & Diving Championships have been released. The cut-line wound up falling right where it was expected after yesterday’s (updated) pre-cut list release, mid-way through the 38th-ranked swimmers. That’s about a spot-and-a-half lower (slower) than what was invited last year, as this season there were more swimmers who had multiple times ranked highly.

Stanford leads the way with 18 swimmers invited individually for the 2nd-straight year. If they qualify any divers for the meet, which seems very likely, they’ll have to decide between keeping those divers or scratching an individual swimmer.

This year’s invite list includes 64 freshmen, 65 sophomores, 80 juniors, and 72 seniors. Last year, the sophomores (now the juniors) were the biggest class with 76. This year’s seniors actually lost a qualifier from last year – they had 73 (on the initial lists) when they were juniors.

Stanford are projected to score the most swimming points, but only 3 more than their conference rivals from Cal, Michigan, Tennessee, and NC State round out the scoring, by seed. 3 of the top 4 teams by seed scoring didn’t win their conference titles (Cal, Michigan, Tennessee).

The other piece of the puzzle, diving, will be decided at Zone Diving Championships, which begin next week.

With no open water like at their confernence meets I’m afraid we will all be disappointed with 21.3’s

Well my daughter could be that differentiation on the Junior to Senior count dropping by one. She couldn’t quite get the 200FL time down and ended up as the 2nd alternate for the event since it only had 37 entries. Maybe not the way you would like things to wrap up but that is how the sport goes sometimes. Long course nationals to still look ahead to. That said who has a need for 2 all-session passes cause I have ’em to sell and they can be picked up at will-call :). I was looking forward to one last viewing of the hyper-fast variety of swimming that NCAA Champs puts on too.

SWIMMOM, Sorry I missed this previously. I do have them in hand and could certainly overnight a set to you if you are still in need. Please reach out to me at [email protected] if that is the case and we can work out the details.

The long term trend at the top of the division is toward more parity not toward less. https://swimswam.com/measuring-parity-ncaa-d1-championships/
