Scoring the NCAA D1 Women’s Pre-Selection Psych Sheet

by Andrew Mering 15

February 28th, 2017 College, News

The NCAA released the pre-selection psych sheet today. While this isn’t the final official psych sheet, the cut line will fall well below the scoring swimmers at 16th place and any event changes will be minor. Therefore scoring out this psych sheet gives a fairly valid impression of where teams stand heading into the meet. The biggest missing variable here is diving which isn’t one the pre-selection psych sheet.

Unsurprisingly, season long #1 Stanford has a large lead over California 551 to 400. There are a large number of teams that are competitive for the 3rd spot. USC, NC State, Texas, Georgia, and Texas A&M are all seeded within 38 points of each other.

Stanford has 4 of the top 5 swimmers by individual seeded points. Kathleen Baker of California with 54 points was the non Stanford able to break into the top 5. The complete individual swimmer points are below.

The highest single event score from a single team is Stanford with 54 in the 200 free. The event by event scores for each of the top 10 ranked teams are below.

How did this work out last year? Clearly this is an exercise in mathematics and not a prognostication but it might have been worth mentioning how close last year’s numbers compared to the final standings.

Woof Woof Woof

Joe

Wow, I did not realize the divide between 2 and 3 was so stark (and you could also say the divide between 1 and 2, I guess). Also interesting that the top 3 schools are from California (though Georgia may peak later as they did last year).

Troy

I would be shocked if Georgia gets 6th. I know they don’t have depth the used to, but still they know how to show up and swim fast!!!!
