Official Psych Sheets released for 2014 Division I Women’s NCAA Championship Meet

The official psych sheets for the women’s DI NCAA Championships dropped today, with the 281 invited swimmers now officially announced. Here are all the important links:

As we predicted in our unofficial analysis of the pre-cut psych sheets yesterday, the top 39 times will receive invites in each event, a very slight increase from a year ago.

The national championships will take place in Minneapolis, Minnesota at the University of Minnesota Aquatic Center in just over two weeks – the first events kick off on the morning of March 20th.

We’ll have plenty more analysis of these entries to follow, but for now, here’s a brief look at the schools with double-digit invitees. Defending champions Georgia lead the NCAA with 17, just one shy of the maximum squad size for swimmers.

Keep in mind that divers have yet to be added to these totals. Divers will officially qualify for the NCAA Championships at Zone competitions to be held next week.

School Athletes
Georgia 17
California 16
Texas A&M 16
Florida 14
Virginia 13
Southern California 11
Indiana 11
Tennessee 10
UNC 10
Stanford 10

Peter

Were there any schools who hit the Qualifying Standard for a relay, but had no individual swimmer?

Peter – nope, not this year. All relays had an invited swimmer. You’re much, much more likely to see that happen on the men’s side, because of the relatively fewer number of swimmers who are taken in each event. If 17-20 women’s relays hit the Qualification Standards, but 39 hit the invite line in each event, you’re much more likely to not have that problem than the men, where there’s 20+ relays in everything (the one I have open is 400 medley, where there’s 23 without Pac-12) but only 29 or 30 in each individual event.

Make sense?

What about New Mexico and UNLV in the 200 Medley Relay? Both had A cuts but are not on the invited relay list

Yes, makes sense to me and like several other matters this week makes me hate the NCAA even more. Very sexist to not invite as many men and crappy to have such a small meet in general.

For those attending the meet at the Minnesota Aquatic Center, how do you find out which section your team and fans are to occupy? Minnesota ticket office has not been helpful thus far in this regards. Please advise.

I went a couple of years ago for big tens and they had signs by each section for where the fans would be. Each session the team rotated spots so that one school did not have a better view for the entire me. Idk if it will be the same because of more teams at NCAA.

Thanks, John.

Sorry, saw the ‘A’ next to the team name and thought that meant ‘A’ cut.
