2018 WOMEN’S NCAA CHAMPIONSHIPS

The second full session of the 2018 women’s NCAA D1 championships is complete. With one day to go, Stanford built on their lead, ending with 414 points to Cal’s 268. Texas A&M are 3rd with 186 and Texas are 4th with 171.

If we add the scored psych sheet for tomorrow’s events (which does not include platform diving, but neither Stanford nor Cal have a diver entered in that event) to the current scores, the score comes to Stanford 593, Cal 356, a difference of 237. This would be the 2nd largest margin of victory in the history of women’s NCAA championships and within striking distance of the Texas 1985 record margin of 243 points. Here is the current top 10 largest ever margins of victory at this meet:

Team Year Margin of Victory
1 Texas 1985 243
2 Stanford 1993 228.5
3 Auburn 2003 163
4 Stanford 2017 160.5
5 Auburn 2004 138
6 Arizona 2008 136
7 Georgia 2014 125.5
8 Florida 1982 122
9 Texas 1988 118.5
10 Georgia 2005 117.5

The highest scoring single individual event was Stanford in the 400 IM with 55 points. Next was again Stanford with 34 in the 100 back and then Michigan with 32 in the 200 free.

Compared to the psych sheet for today’s events, Texas had the best day, improving by 44 points. Louisville were next with 39 points gained, followed by Stanford who picked up 38. Tennessee dropped the most points from the psych sheet (27.5). This was due, at least in part, to another medley relay snafu this morning, when Erika Brown swam half her freestyle leg butterfly (and managed not to get DQ’d, despite the obvious rule violation).

Stanford picked up the most points at the night session vs their seeds after this morning’s prelims, gaining 19.5. Virginia Tech dropped the most points vs the morning, losing 15.

Scoring Summary

Psych points are the scored psych for today. The psych sheet doesn’t contain diving, so it is compared to the day 3 swim points below.

Stanford inherited all of the best talent. They had better be scoring astronomical points.

CraigH

Inherited? Pretty sure Meehan recruited them.

NormG

Not much of a difference is there? Stanford recruits itself.

Das Swimmer

That is a ridiculous thing to say. Cal inherited crazy talent but can’t win an event. Mckeever ruins half the stars she gets.

paloozas

sort of unrelated, but are you guys going to get the 400 free relay preview up? also, has a team ever swept the relays before?

Buona

Texas men team will be inspired by Stanford women team and aim to repeat such dominance performance in a few days time.

Silent Observer

Sure they can aim for it… But will def fall short of matching it…
