2017 M. ACCs Up/Mid/Down Report: NC State, Louisville Separate From Field

2017 MEN’S ACC SWIMMING & DIVING CHAMPIONSHIPS

The NC State Wolfpack led the way with 11 A-finalists coming out of Wednesday’s morning session at the 2017 Men’s ACC Championships, but the Louisville Cardinals kept up the pace with 14 swimmers in the top 16 tonight.  Both teams carried a relatively balanced attack, with at least one A-finalist in each event, but tonight’s 100 fly will be a race to watch; Wolfpack and Cardinal swimmers will account for six of eight people in the A-final.

The Cardinals’ strong morning will definitively move them into second place past Virginia Tech tonight.  The H2Okies will be looking to hold off a deep Notre Dame team that is slowly making up ground.

Note: Ups refer to swimmers in the A final, who can finish no lower than 8th barring a DQ; Mids refer to swimmers in the B final, who can finish no higher than 9th and no lower than 16th (again, barring a DQ on the low end); and Downs refer to swimmers in the C final, who can finish no higher than 17th and no lower than 24th (again, barring a DQ on the low end).

For our “prelims point estimate”, we project the estimated points based on the average score that will be earned by a swimmer in each final, rather than the actual prelims placing.

Virginia with just one more A final than FSU but expected to score 50 more points, calculation error?

157 for UVa and 132 for FSU is what points project at based on actual prelim places

Interesting to note that UVa has 10 freshman and sophmore scorers – more than any other team (NCSU and LVILLE have 5 each), future bodes well for the ‘Hoos.
