2020 B1G Women’s Ups/Mids/Downs Day 3: Ohio State Sets Up Big Lead

2020 WOMEN’S B1G 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.

B1G WOMEN’S UPS/MIDS/DOWNS DAY 3 TOTALS

Ohio State rolls in with 20 finals swims, projecting to score 326.5 points this evening. Indiana comes in with the most A-finals swims at 8, setting themselves up for 278 points tonight with their 7 other swims.

Michigan continues to swim in clear waters for second place with 16 finals swims, potentially looking to open the gap between them and Indiana by roughly 140 points.
