NCAA Division II Psych Sheets Out; Only 14 Invited in Most Men’s Events, 17 in Women’s

The standards for earning an invite in an individual event to the NCAA Division II Championships have gotten extremely tough, as evidenced by Tuesday’s release of the “Unofficial” Psych Sheets for the 2015 Championship meet in Indy.

Only 14 swimmers were invited in most men’s events, while the cutoff line for women’s events came in around 17.

While the eventual entries fell at many more swimmers than that, those entries were primarily filled with either optional entries from swimmers already invited in other events and relay-only invites using optional entries to expand their schedules.

Unlike the Division III Psych Sheets released on Monday, these Division II sheets are “post cut,” meaning they’re a listing of those swimmers expected to race at nationals.

The Drury men and women lead the way with 14 and 16 invited swimmers, respectively, as they both look to defend NCAA titles.

Several other teams also peaked into double-digit invitees, despite the tight standards.

Men’s most invited:

1. Drury – 14
T-2. Queens – 11
T-2. Lindenwood – 11
4. Florida Southern – 10
T-5. Tamps – 9
T-5. Wingate – 9

Women’s most invited:

1. Drury – 16
2. UCSD – 13
T-3. Queens – 12
T-3. Wingate – 12
T-5. Cal Baptist – 8
T-5. Lindenwood – 8
T-5. Nova Southeastern – 8
T-5. Simon Fraser – 8
T-5. Wayne State – 8

including Queens (11 men, 12 women), Florida Southern (10 men), Lindenwood (11 men)

“Only 14” is actually deeper than the first 2 years of the invite system. Would be nice if they actually increased the cap though…

And not to be a jerk, but wasn’t Alaska-Fairbanks on probation this season?
