Three Women’s Teams, Cal Men Now With Five NCAA Relay ‘A’ Cuts

After the first weekend of invites there were a total of six women’s and eight men’s teams who had hit at least one of the 2019 NCAA relay ‘Auto’ standards, and now that invite season is completely wrapped up that number has doubled.

There are now 14 women’s teams with at least one cut, and 15 men’s. After the first round of meets the Louisville women and Indiana men led the way with four relay cuts each, but four different teams managed to hit the standard in all five over the weekend.

The Texas women lead the way with five cuts and two NCAA-leading times in the 200 and 400 free relays. The Cal women also hit all five, now impressively ranking 2nd in the country in four and 3rd in the other, while the Michigan women also made five including the nation-leading time in the 400 medley. Tennessee joined Louisville with four.

The Texas men joined Indiana with four cuts.

Stanford women looks like a sinking ship at this point in the season. They can only B final the medley relays with those times.
