Scoring Out The 2016 NCAA DI Psych Sheet – Women’s Edition

Early Tuesday morning, the NCAA released their pre-cut psych sheets for the 2016 Women’s NCAA DI Championships. At the NCAA Championships, only the top 16 swimmers in each event scores points. Points are doubled for relay events.

California will be competing to defend their NCAA title. If they win this year, it will be their fifth national championship in program history. Despite not having Missy Franklin this season, the Golden Bears are still projected to win, although it is expected to be a very close meet.

Stanford’s depth and relay strength has them projected to be in second place going into the meet, only 23 points behind California. Virginia is sitting in third place with 313 projected points.

The projected team scores will change around a little bit once diving scores can be added in. With three diving events at the NCAA Championships, a good diver or two can make a huge impact on the outcome of the meet.

Below is a breakdown of the points awarded for each event at the NCAA Championships:

A Final Points For Individual Events

1. 20 (40 relays)
2. 17 (34 relays)
3. 16 (32 relays)
4. 15 (30 relays)
5. 14 (28 relays)
6. 13 (26 relays)
7. 12 (24 relays)
8. 11 (22 relays)

B Final Points For Individual Events

1. 9 (18 relays)
2. 7 (14 relays)
3. 6 (12 relays)
4. 5 (10 relays)
5. 4 (8 relays)
6. 3 (6 relays)
7. 2 (4 relays)
8. 1 (2 relays)

This list is based off of the NCAA’s Pre-cut psych sheet published on the morning of Tuesday, March 1st. Click here to view that psych sheet. The 2015 Women’s NCAA Championships will take place in Atlanta, GA at the Georgia Tech Campus Recreation Center on March 17th.

Elaine Breeden’s 200 fly and Caitlin Leverenz 200/400 IM records are all going down this year thanks to Ella Eastin & Kelsi Worrell potentially in the 2fly.

The Grand Inquisitor

Will be following the zone diving qualifier meets with interest, as the outcome of these could end up being be a difference maker. Among the schools projected in the top six above, Stanford has three top flight divers (two that have scored at NCAA’s before, and a third that just won 2 events at Pac12s this year), but it’s not apparent to me that any of the others have reason to expect scoring from their diving.
