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.
Harvard swept the top qualifying spots in all 5 individual events on Friday morning. Freshman Felicia Pasadyn, who won the 200 IM on Thursday, posted the top time in the 400 IM with 4:11.71. Senior Miki Dahlke clocked a field-leading 52.71 in the 100 fly. Junior Kennedy Quist and defending champion Samantha Shelton qualified 1-2 in the 200 free with 1:46.06 and 1:46.71, respectively. Junior Jaycee Yegher took down the Brown pool record in the 100 breast, qualifying first with 59.39. And freshman Addie Rose Bullock touched in 53.74 to lead the field in the 100 back.
Princeton and Brown each placed 18 swimmers in the various finals. Princeton led the morning overall with 10 A finalists, 6 B finalists, and 2 C finalists. Although the 1000 is not included in the tables below, it is worth mentioning that the Tigers have three of the top 8 seeds. They will be swimming in the fastest heat in tonight’s finals session. Harvard’s top entrant, seeded 14th, will compete in the afternoon heats. Princeton is projected to take the lead from Harvard in tonight’s final and set up a showdown for Day 4.
Columbia, Brown, and Penn, separated only by 6 points at the conclusion of Day 2 finals, are locked in a tight battle for 4th through 6th. Brown and Penn came out on top this morning and have pulled ahead of Penn, but the race for 4th is still intense.
Dartmouth had a stellar morning, beating their psych sheet seedings by 49 points.
