NCAA Releases Pre-Cut Psych Sheets For Women’s 2016 NCAA Championships

The NCAA has released the pre-selection psych sheets for the 2016 Women’s NCAA Championship meet. These sheets do not show who has qualified for the meet, but rather focus on the entries submitted for consideration by college coaches.

Click here to see the pre-cut lists.

These lists provide fans with insight about which events the top swimmers will be swimming in Atlanta later this month. These lists will also help us to see where the cut-off lines will fall, which will be important for those teams hoping that a few more swimmers will be invited to this year’s championship meet.

The cut lines will be announced later this week, but last year they fell between lines 37 and 40. A full list of the cut-off times from the last three seasons can be found below:
