With the pre-selection psych sheets now live for the 2021 Women’s NCAA Swimming & Diving Championships, we can score out the individual swimming events.

Previous coverage:

The following projections are just that – projections. Every year, teams vary wildly from their psych sheets points to their actual scored points. But these numbers at least give us a starting point for previewing the 2021 Women’s NCAA Championships.

Note: these projections do not include diving, where athletes will be selected via NCAA Zone meets later this month.

University of Minnesota has a pretty young team. I’m optimistic they will build it back! It’s weird to not see any swimmers.

All the teams say they are “young”.

Thank you so much Jared! This is great stuff! Always one of my favorite things SS puts out. As you said this is without diving and can vary drastically from the real outcome. Would be interesting to do a “projection” of diving points as well.

Wow Auburn not even seeded to score

Lmao does that surprise you?

Texas only has 7 swimmers but 6 of those score pretty significant points. Add in diving, and a runner-up finish could be an achievable stretch goal.

You’re right, it is within reach. That was one of the more surprising numbers on here, because it *felt* like Cal was going to be way ahead of everyone for 2nd.

But Texas diving is pretty good, Paola Pineda is having a big, big year.

They’d have to be better than they have the past few years, where they’ve been:

-31.5 (2019)
+17.5 (2018)
+15 (2017)

Even those small +s probably won’t be enough this year. I’d expect Cal to be significantly better than seeded. NC State was way worse than seed at the 2019 NCAAs, so they’ll have to reverse that trend too.

Those top seeded teams have all been shaky at NCAAs in the past, so… Read more »

Texas women may bring 3-4 divers. Pineda was challenged by Bridget O’Neil on 1M, and lost to her on 3M. The other three may have scoring potential.

Ha ha Braden you are awesome. I want to have you jump on with my team the way you’re a full on member of UVA’s team. You found one of the few places UVA can improve, while most people would only notice that UVA has about 300 points on the psyche sheet that can only go down. Keep pumping the UVA hype machine while I work on an offer to get you to sign on with us!
