2020 NAIA Men’s National Championship: Day 3 Ups/Downs

2020 NAIA Men’s Swimming & Diving National Championship

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 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 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 and “Down” to swimmers in the B final.

Men’s Ups/Downs – Day 3

Keiser and SCAD both had strong mornings and are poised to maintain their positions at the top of the standings after tonight’s finals. The race for third place took a nasty turn for Cumberlands when their 200 medley relay was DQd in heats. SCAD (+14), Simpson (+13), Life (+11), and Keiser (+10) all had double-digit improvements over their psych sheet seedings.
