2020 NCAA Division II Men’s Championships – Day 2 Ups/Downs

2020 NCAA Division II Men’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, swimmers qualify for one of two finals heats: the top 8 finishers make the A final; 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.

Day Two

Queens had a strong morning, making up for some of its losses on Wednesday when a relay was DQd, but McKendree didn’t give up much ground and remains poised to snap the Royals’ streak at 5 consecutive team titles. Outperforming the psych sheet on Day Two were Carson-Newman (+13), Colorado Mesa (+12), Fresno Pacific (+18), Lewis (+16), Missouri S&T (+20), Queens (+24.5), and Wayne State (+35).
