NCAA D1 “A” Cut Swimmers As Of February 1, 2016

As we head into the final stretch before college conference championships, let’s take a look at the current D1 swimmers who are in possession of NCAA “A” cuts at this point.

If you’ve followed along with our previous two posts on the subject, both in November and December, you’ll notice that not much has changed since late 2015, highlighting not only the grind that athletes are currently in, but also revealing the fact that we’re in an Olympic year.

Not only are several of the NCAA’s top swimmers red-shirting this year to focus solely on Rio, such as Chase Kalisz, Kierra Smith, Santo Condorelli just to name a few, but some swimmers still in the college mix are trying to balance SCY with LCM swims to score Trials cuts and simply more long course racing experience for Omaha.

Most confusing time of year for me anyway. 270 women/322 men, right? For women, If you’re 40th with a “B” cut you’re pretty much guaranteed not to go. 35th and you’re pretty much guaranteed to go. Right? Regarding relays you don’t get individual swim unless you earn it even if you swim in a relay? Does his pretty much sum it up?

marley09 – more or less, that’s correct/

weirdo

your women men totals are backwards.

Have those total numbers changed from last year? Last year, 235 men got in (and 35 divers). The line ended up at about #29-30 for men (not 35).
