The NCAA has released its official psych sheets (along with the invite line) for the 2021 Women’s NCAA Swimming & Diving Championships. The meet itself takes place later this month, from March 17-20 in Greensboro, North Carolina.

You can see all the relevant documents here:

The cut-line fell exactly where we had projected it, with the entirety of row 41 making the meet and the top alternates coming out of row 42. The tiebreak for alternates with the same ranking is a comparison of the swimmer’s time to the NCAA A cut, with the swimmer who is the closest to the A cut in their event (based on a percentage of the total seconds) getting first priority.

The psych sheets do still include Michigan sprinter Daria Pyshnenko, the 10th seed in the 50 free and 12th seed in the 100 free. Pyshnenko said this week that she was retiring from swimming and would not be competing at NCAAs.

If and when she does officially scratch out, Nevada’s Donna Depolo would appear to be in as the first alternate, unless the NCAA decides to re-do its original invite process without Pyshnenko.

Morgan Miller from VT was on the first psych sheet – should be showing 47th on cut line psych sheet #47 with a 158.37. Have to ask why she was on one and skipped on the second.

Swimmers below the dotted line weren’t invited in those races, they were invited in other events and can swim up to 2 additional swims in which they have “B” cuts.
