NCAA Reveals Official Psych Sheets, Cutlines For 2020 Women’s NCAA Champs


The NCAA has released its official psych sheets (along with the invite line) for the 2020 Women’s NCAA Swimming & Diving Championships. The meet itself will take place in two weeks, from March 18-21 in Georgia.

You can see all the relevant documents here:

The cutline is exactly where we projected it to be yesterday, with all of line 37 making the cut and a handful of line 38 swimmers getting in. The top alternate is Florida International’s Jasmine Nocentini in the 50 free, with fellow 50 freestyler Camryn Curry the second alternate. If Texas A&M’s Anna Belousova is indeed out of the meet (as she said on social media), Nocentini would be added to the invite list.

This feels so wide open, I am so excited that there is some parity this year. It would be super nutty if Virginia or Cal won.

I agree that it would be nutty if UVA, Tenn or NC State won the title, but not so much with Cal, who has won many.

I noticed on the UGA Swimming & Diving website a clear bag policy for sporting events. Can anyone confirm this to be true for the NCAA swim meet?

See link to Championship Central at top of page and go to end re: Gabrielsen Natatorium and Clear Bag Policy. It is a requirement in all SEC venues – will not change for this meet.

Should be next week. Men’s Pac-12s start tonight and there are a few last chance meets.

How does the alternate list work? Do they all make it?

Can a team bring alternates for relays as long as they stay under the 18 team member cap?

What costs does the NCAA cover for the invited swimmers?

Reply to  Justanarp

Yes, each team eligible to swim relays is able to bring up to 4 uninvited relay swimmers at their own cost. Those swimmers count toward each team’s 18-swimmer cap, and cannot swim individual events.

wow, exciting! top seeds from different schools, except two individuals as top seed for two events each.

Maybe this is a silly question, but can coaches change the lineups of relay teams? Or do they have to be swum with the exact same 4 swimmers that made the original cut time?

Reply to  Bearly Breathing

They can change lineups

Reply to  Bearly Breathing

They can use anybody invited to the meet + up to 4 institution-funded uninvited relay swimmers. They can also switch lineups between prelims and finals.

In other words, relay qualifications belong to ‘the institution’ not the individual athletes.

Braden can you explain “institutionally funded” vs “ncaa invited?” Does that means the ncaa pays for invited swimmers’ accommodations?

Reply to  Foreign Embassy

For invited athletes + a certain number of non-athletes (depending on how many invited athletes they’re sending), the schools get:

1) Transport (flights or bus, depending on distance from the site)
2) $150 per diem, which can cover hotels, food, etc.
