Swimulator Mid Season Rankings for D3 Conferences, Part 1

  15 Andrew Mering | January 11th, 2017 | College, News

We’ve done mid season rankings for all the D1 conferences (big conferences, small conferences), so now it’s time to take a look at how the little guys stack up. I’ve run the Swimulator conference simulation tool for D3 conferences to see how the standings look now based on top times (minus diving).

Mid season rankings are a flawed predictor of conference results. Different teams approach in season meets in different ways. However, teams tend to have a consistent approach to mid season meets every year, so comparing this season’s mid season rankings to last year’s rankings at this point and last year’s actual conference scores can give a decent idea of what to expect in February. Teams that picked up a bunch of points last year are more likely to do the same again this year. Teams that saw a big drop off are more likely to be caught by their competitors again. Teams that have noticeably more or less points this year are in a position to perform differently this year than last.

Some D3 conferences for swimming don’t line up with team’s “official” conference affiliations (ex. combined conferences, teams that swim in another conference due to too few teams in their own) so the Swimulated meets might have slightly off teams. I’ve tried to note these below.
