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

2021 NCAA Division II Women’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

Queens continued to outperform the psych sheet on Friday morning, picking up an extra 34 points in the 500 free and 100 back. Colorado Mesa had a strong morning across the board, improving 22 points with gains in the 100 back, 100 breast, and diving. Biola’s freshman breaststroker had a big swim in prelims of the 100 breast, finishing third to add 16 potential points to the Eagles’ score. Tampa also picked up 16 in breaststroke but netted +14 for the morning.

At the other end of the scale, Western Colorado (-10), Wingate (-14), UIndy (-16), and Lindenwood (-26) had a few misses from their psych sheet seedings.
