2022 NCAA Division I Men’s Championships: Final Score Analysis

2022 NCAA Division I Men’s Swimming and Diving Championships

FULL RESULTS

The 2022 NCAA Division I Men’s Championships wrapped up more or less as anticipated, with Cal winning the championship by 51 points over Texas. The fourth day of the meet traditionally plays into Cal’s strengths and the Golden Bears amassed 167 points -3.5 points better than their Day 4 seeded score- to secure the victory.

Overall, Cal was up 129 points ahead of their psych sheet seeding over the four-day meet. That compares with an average of +124.83 for the last three championships (2021, 2019, 2018). (As a reminder, these numbers are swimming points only – we’ve factored out diving, where no good version of a psych sheet exists.) Texas improved their seeded score by 74.5 points (versus an average of 69.83 during the last three meets).

From a percentage standpoint, Harvard (+308%) and Georgia Tech (+171.4%) did much better than their seedings, while Texas A&M, Northwestern, Tennessee, Ohio State, and Louisville, were among the teams that did not live up to seeding. Stanford, who has averaged a net gain of 42.83 points over the last three meets, was off by -24 points this year.
