Division II Psych Sheets Released; McKendree Men Seek To Break Queens Streak

2020 NCAA Division II Women’s & Men’s Swimming & Diving Championships

  • Wednesday, March 11 – Saturday, March 14, 2020
  • SPIRE Institute Aquatics Center – Geneva, OH
  • Prelims 10 AM / Finals 6 PM (U.S. Eastern Time)
  • Defending champs Queens women (5x) & Queens men (5x)
  • Psych Sheets:

The NCAA has released unofficial psych sheets and cut lines for the 2020 NCAA Division II Swimming & Diving Championships.

Pre-selection sheets came earlier this week, with some new NCAA rules throwing wrinkles into which teams can qualify. You can read more about that here. We could not find any obvious additions, or subtractions, from those preselection sheets to the unofficial psych sheets released on Thursday.

We’ve also scored out the psych sheets, and you can find that data below. At present, the McKendree men score out highest on the psych sheet, 65 points ahead of five-time defending champs Queens. On the women’s side, Queens is in the best position after seeding again, but Drury, which dominated D2 before the rise of the Queens program, is only 31 points behind, led by senior Bailee Nunn.

JP input is too short

Oh, how times have changed.

13 of the teams projected to score in the men’s meet either weren’t around or weren’t in D2 when I swam a decade ago, and another 3 started up their programs while I was swimming.

Out of the 27 teams that scored my freshman year, only 12 are projected to score this year, and 5 either moved up to D1 or don’t exist anymore. Out of the top 10 teams that year, it’s even more stark: Drury, S&T, West Chester, Wayne, UCSD have qualifiers this year; OBU and HSU exist but don’t have qualifiers; Seattle moved up to D1; North Dakota and Limestone don’t exist anymore.

KNOWS NOTHING

This is the last year for UCSD: going into purgatory prior to D1.

I love the fast swimming that is happening at the DII level. Can we get an analysis of where the swimmers are from? Both domestically and internationally. The upper midwest is (MN,WI, IL, IA, Dakotas) only has a single division 2 men’s team, if I am not mistaken. And after UND cut their program North Dakota might not have any male collegiate swimming? It would be interesting to see if athletes from that area are under represented in this meet.

I count 2: St. Cloud State and Lewis University

JP input is too short

I would could Michigan (NMU, GVSU, WSU) as upper midwest in that count as well.

Getting around Lake Michigan always makes them feel so far away, except NMU. But if we are talking about MI, there is also Saginaw Valley

Good Call. Forgot about Lewis.

I would like to see the percentage of non-Americans.

Jared Anderson swam for nearly twenty years. Then, Jared Anderson stopped swimming and started writing about swimming. He's not sick of swimming yet. Swimming might be sick of him, though. Jared was a YMCA and high school swimmer in northern Minnesota, and spent his college years swimming breaststroke and occasionally pretending …
