The Top 16 Men in Each Race at 2017-18 NCAA Midseason

We’re now through the second round of NCAA midseason invites and it’s time to take a look at where the division 1 teams stand. SwimSwam has put together a list of the top 16 times in each event up to this point. The lists in this article only include top times for the men. The women’s rankings will be included in a separate article.

Keep in mind that while compiling these rankings, a couple of swims occasionally slip through the cracks, so let us know in the comments if we’ve missed anything. SwimSwam will be using these rankings to score out a mock NCAA meet based on the midseason results.

Check out the 2017-18 men’s midseason scores here.

A few things to consider:

  • A few of the top swimmers who are likely NCAA finalists may be missing from events. For example, Florida’s Caeleb Dressel didn’t get a chance to swim the 100 free or 100 fly at his invite, as he had to leave the Purdue Invitational early to tend to a personal matter. Georgia’s Gunnar Bentz and USC’s Carsten Vissering are also among the missing swimmers.
  • Some swimmers are ranked in the top 16 in more than 3 events. These swimmers will only be scored in 3 of those events when we score out the meet. The scoring article will be up soon.
  • While a couple of division 2 swimmers are among the fastest in the country, the purpose of this article is to identify the top 16 division 1 swimmers in each race.
  • Some schools had more than one relay make the top 16. Only the fastest relay from each school was counted.
  • Diving is not included in these rankings

(Note: The times listed are from the USA Swimming database, so if any swimmers are missing from the list that should be on it, we’ll update accordingly.)

Sort by:   newest | oldest | most voted

Only event Cal doesn’t have someone in the top 16 is the 200 free. Makes sense since they only have the #2 time in the 8free relay. Bums

The 800 free times are nowhere close to what it will take to win it.

Ben Cono of Loyola Maryland is a huge hoss. This kid is too good to go unnoticed. Very excited to see him bust onto the scene come March

I think Caleb Hicks in the 100 breast (52.9) and Alex Walton in the 400 IM (3:44.0) both swim for Missouri
