When psych sheets for the 2018 NCAA Division III men’s and women’s swimming & diving championships were released, they were labeled “unofficial.” Those have now been replaced with the new “official” psych sheets.
The most significant change is one we already knew about, with Amherst’s men’s team being withdrawn from the meet altogether as punishment for drinking on the team bus after the conference championship meet.
That caused such a significant list of changes, including 9 new alternates being called in, that we’ll repost all of the lists below. In fact, the entirety of the listed alternates was already run-through, and the NCAA had to calculate the next-3 on the roster (after Denison’s 4 were eliminated from consideration because Denison has already hit the roster size limit).
The more unexpected changes came on the women’s psych sheets, where 4 swimmers pulled out of the meet, and several were added. The most significant scratches included Mardell Ramirez from Cal Lutheran, who was the 8th seed in the 200 free and one of only 2 female swimmers from her team; and Dana Lautenschleger from Mount Union, who was seeded 7th in the 1650 free. Margaret Herbert of Ramapo also scratched the meet as her team’s only entrant.
The 2018 men’s and women’s NCAA Division III swimming & diving championships will be held from March 21st-24th in Indianapolis, Indiana.
