Orange is a Winner on Day 1 of the 2013 SwimSwam Pick ‘Em Contest for Women’s NCAA’s

We won’t tell you exactly the identity of who’s winning after day 1 of our 2013 Pick ‘Em contest. But with relays worth double in our scoring, just as it is in the real meet, I’ll give you a hint: it was the one person who picked both Tennessee relays to win.

A future Georgia Bulldog swimmer, Emily Cameron (ecam44), is currently in 2nd place. (She used her Twitter handle as her nickname…I think that makes her identity fair game). Finally, a previous SwimSwam Pick ‘Em Winner no1swimfreak has tied for 3rd with Olsswim05.

Aside from the relays (only three of our 180+ entries picked Tennessee to win the 400 medley), the 500 free caught a lot of people. Even with Haley Anderson as the defending champion in the 500 free, only a single person selected her to win that race again this year. That person, RDS, happened to pick all three individual winners right on the night, though he was cost a lofty standing by the relays.

The 500 free threw everyone for a loop though. Here’s a comparison: 971 points were scored in the 50 free. 771 points were scored in the 200 IM. Just 94 points, by all of you combined, were scored in the 500 free. That means that on average, less than half of our entries even had Haley Anderson, Amber McDermott, or Shannon Vreeland in their top 3.

For reference, “AS SEEDED PICKS” is a dummy entry that we put in with the top three seeds selected in each event. That entry scored only 18 points. For reference, a perfect score on the first day was 70.

The winner on day 1 will receive a free pair of goggles from Engine, with the second and third place finishers getting a free engine cap. Remember that the grand prize for the highest scorer across the three days is an Engine tech suit!
