To kick off the last night of the 2022 NCAA Women’s Championships, it took under 16 minutes to be top eight (and to be exact, ninth). Last year, it took a time of 16:04 to be in the top eight.
Last season, COVID-19 shortened most NCAA teams’ seasons, and on top of that, teams frequently had disruptions due to the virus making it harder to consistently train. As with a majority of the NCAA meet so far, this year’s meet has been significantly faster and that trend continued tonight in the mile.
Last year, it took a 16:04.11 to be in the top eight of the event. This year it took a 15:59.49. To be more exact, last year ninth place finished in a 16:07.36 and ninth place finisher Maya Geringer of Ohio State this year was also under 16 minutes swimming a 15:59.82.
Although this year was significantly faster than last year, it took a time of 15:53.72 in 2019, 15:54.44 in 2018, and 15:54.88 in 2017 to be in the top eight.
