2021 NCAA Division II Men’s Championships: Day 3 Ups/Downs

2021 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 Three

As we begin to close in on the final sessions of the 2021 NCAA Division II Men’s Championships, the battle between past champions Queens and Drury is still alive. Queens had a huge day on Thursday, and scored about on par with expectations Friday morning. While the Royals gained 21 points in the 500 free, they had a few misses in the back, breast, and fly, including a DQ, to come out more or less as expected for the day. Drury was net 8 points in the red, owing mainly to the #1 seed in the 100 back failing to make the A final.

Florida Southern picked up 28 points on the morning, outscoring the psych sheet in everything but the breast. Delta State was up 16; Henderson State and Wayne State, 13 and 12, respectively.

Double-digit misses went to Colorado Mesa (-10), Lindenwood (-16), UIndy (-21), and Grand Valley (-22).
