For those unfamiliar with swimming terminology, the concept of “Ups” and “Downs” is a good way to track which teams performed best at prelims. In prelims, swimmers qualify for one of three finals heats: the top 8 finishers make the A final, places 9 through 16 the B final and places 17 through 24 the C final. In finals, swimmers are locked into their respective final, meaning a swimmer in the B heat (spots 9-16) can only place as high as 9th or as low as 16th, even if they put up the fastest or slowest time of any heat in the final.

With that in mind, we’ll be tracking “Ups,” “Mids” and “Downs” after each prelims session. “Up” refers to swimmers in the A final, “Mid” to swimmers in the B final and “Down” to swimmers in the C final.

Entering Day 3, Virginia held a relatively slim 24-point advantage over NC State for first, while Virginia Tech was in a clear third. Louisville, Duke and Notre Dame remained tightly bunched up in fourth, fifth and sixth.

It was a massive morning for Virginia, as they put 14 swimmers through to ‘A’ finals, including five in the 100 fly and three in both the 200 free and 100 breast. Overall this showing should vault them into a comfortable team lead over NC State heading into the final day.

The Wolfpack still put nine swimmers into ‘A’ finals and five in the ‘B’s, including going 3/2/0 in the 100 breast.

Louisville stood out among the rest of the field going 7/5/6, putting two swimmers in the ‘A’ finals of the 100 fly, 200 free and 100 breast.
