Battle Is On for 4th at the 2019 Pac-12 Championships

2019 PAC-12 WOMEN’S SWIMMING & DIVING CHAMPIONSHIPS

The Stanford women have 13 swimmers seeded to score in the top 8 tonight (A finalists, plus top 8 seeds in the mile).

After some early shakiness, including a 200 free relay DQ, the USC Trojans did enough on Saturday morning to ensure that their 80-point lead over Arizona State for 3rd place will hold up through diving. Both teams have good platform divers, but USC has 5 entrants to just 2 for Arizona State (including Naomi Gowlett, who ranked 4th as of posting, through 3 of 6 rounds, in prelims).

Arizona still has a shot at catching Arizona State if their divers perform well. Delaney Schnell of Arizona was ranked 1st after 2 rounds of prelims on the platform, by a substantial margin. Arizona is seeded to have 2 more A-finalists than Arizona State, though Arizona State has a big 4-swimmer margin in B-finals. Overall, the Wildcats have 1 more finalist than their in-state rivals.

Arizona, while looking up the table, have to be careful not to lose sight of UCLA, who are nipping at their heels. UCLA has only 3 A finalists, 1 fewer than Arizona, but 7 B finalists, 4 more than Arizona. They also have 2 more total finalists, and with 4 potential divers, they have enough points there to keep pace with Schnell.Kevin Reust
