NCAA Division I Top Times As Of 10/6

by Sidney Zacharias 11

October 07th, 2022 ACC, Big 12, Big Ten, College, News, Pac-12, SEC

The NCAA season is in full swing, with many teams having already completed their season-openers and intrasquad meets. We have compiled a rough list of the top times of the season thus far, as we head into another busy weekend of racing.

Note: This data would usually be collected using the USA Swimming Times Database, which is the official database of record for bona fide college swims. Technical challenges with USA Swimming databases over the last few weeks, however, has impacted which results have been uploaded. The current list has been pulled from what is available on USA Swimming in combination with the SwimCloud Database. It is likely not a perfect reflection of what has happened. We have also attempted to limit the lists to bona fide competition, excluding intrasquad results, as the NCAA does.

2. Brennan Gravley (Florida) – 3:55.29 2. Mariah Denigan (IU) – 4:16.44

5. Nils Bognar (Georgia Tech) – 3:58.96 5. Caroline Benda (UK)- 4:21.21

With three events, Leon Marchand owns the most top-ranked swims in the country so far. His, along with many other top-5 swims are from the ASU vs. Georgia vs. Mizzou meet held this past weekend.

Over half the events have leading times that are faster than the leading times from last year in early October, with the outliers being the women’s 50 free, men’s 100 back, men’s 200 breast, and men’s 100 breast.

The men’s 50 free is off to a faster-than-usual start, with Jordan Crooks‘ leading time being already 0ver a tenth faster than what led in November of 2021. The event as a whole is significantly faster than it was in 2021 at this time–on October 6, 2021, no one had broken 20.0 yet.

The men’s 500 free is another event that is comparably much faster now compared to this same time last year. The leading time (4.27.23) in early October of 2021 would not even make the top-5 this year.

The Alabama vs. Arkansas meet has also produced many nation-leading swims from both teams. Arkansas’ Luciana Thomas’ performance in the 200 fly already puts her within tenths of where she was in November of 2021 in the event.

The SMU invite will shake this list up quite a bit

Relay leadoffs or opening splits from the ASU @ Georgia weekend that should have made the top times list:

100 Free: Grant House (ASU) :43.41 (#1)
100 Free: Luca Urlando (Georgia) :43.53
50 Free: Jack Dolan (ASU) :19.83
100 Back Jack Dolan (ASU) :47.61
100 Fly: * Luca Urlando (Georgia) :46.26 (#1)
100 Breast Leon Marchand (ASU) :54.66
(out split on way to #1 200 Breast)
50 Free * Dillon Downing (Georgia) :19.75
(from relay which was DQ’d for takeoff on leg 4, but Downing leadoff was clear)

  • = already had a time on the published list but that time not as fast as the swim noted here

Intrasquads with officials and automatic timing would be useful to understanding the progress of the season.

I agree. Discounting intrasquad meets makes zero sense. It’s incredible “bonafide” competition. The times are legit and the athletes stepped up and raced.

Not a sanctioned meet with officials so shouldn’t count

Intrasquads are actually not “bona fide competition” for NCAA purposes. Bona fide competition requires competition against another team.
