2019 Women’s NCAA Championships: Day 3 Scored Prelims

2019 WOMEN’S DIVISION I NCAA CHAMPIONSHIPS

If Cal are going to pull off the upset and beat Stanford, swimming like how they did this morning is how it’s going to happen. The Cal women project to score 148 swimming points tonight. That’s 26.5 more than they were seeded to score on the psych sheet. Stanford project to 115, a gain of 10.5 over their seeds.

The other big gainer this morning was Louisville who picked up 25 projected points.

Adding the day 4 psych sheet projected scores to this morning’s scored prelims and the actual score after yesterday, Stanford still project to win by 38, and that margin doesn’t consider Stanford’s diving advantage. Last night Stanford out scored Cal by 10 points on the 1 meter. That means that Stanford remain the clear favorites, but Cal are doing everything in their power to keep this a close meet.

Unlike last year, the final day is not a formality. Stanford are seeded to score 70 more points than Cal tomorrow, but those high seeds come with the pressure of holding onto them. If Stanford slip up, Cal are in a position to take advantage.

Lower down the standings, Louisville has taken the upper hand over Tennessee in the race for 5th. They have also made it close with the NC State women for 4th. Both NC State (-20.5 vs seed this morning) and Tennessee (-19) gave quite a bit back vs seed while Louisville had a great morning (+25). Louisville and NC State’s final scores are now projected within 5 points of each other.

USC, Virginia, Texas, and Indiana are all well positioned to have a great day 4 and grab 6th place in the standings from Tennessee.

All this is subject to change tonight. Swimmers will move in finals, but the biggest change any team had last night was under 20 points, so we can get a decent idea of the expected point totals from the prelim results alone.

Thanks Andrew for the scoring! Stanford sneaking into the A Final. Cal going to take the lead and try to hold on the last day.

Good thing for Stanford they got that 8th place MR Thursday morning. Without that, this is a very different ballgame.

Louisville closing in on NC State – this will be fun to watch.

There is really nothing about Texas’ swimming performance so far that would lead one to believe they have a big day 4 coming up. Their 3m and platform diving, however, could be the massive point shift.

The 2 UTs are swimming UGLY for sure. After 2 rounds the 3 TX divers are 1-2-3! Wow Coach Carol is a GREAT person and better coach than she has shown in this meet. Coach Kreiditch is an outside the box thinker who dealt with flu at SEC (4th place finish). After the “flu” at SEC, many of us were hopeful the Lady Vols machine would bust out a great meet. Erika Brown has been very good, although slower in every event. Unless I am mistaken no Lady Vol has been a season best yet at this meet? Minnesota and Duke are lighting it up…good for them! Come on TN and TX get back into the game.
