2022 NCAA Men’s Championships: Day 3 Scoring Analysis

2022 NCAA Division I Men’s Swimming and Diving Championships

Cal began Day 3 prelims modestly, moving up two spots from their seeds in the 400 IM and one spot in the 100 fly. Then they exploded, adding finalists in the 200 free, 100 breast, and 100 back to pick up a total of 40 more points than their seeded scores. In finals, the Golden Bears did even better and added another 26.5 points for a net gain of 72.5 in Day 3 swimming events.

Cal passed Texas in the standings for the first time after the backstroke, but the Longhorns moved to the top again after diving. Cal’s victory in the 400 medley relay at the end of the night put them up with a 7.5-point lead heading into Day 4, which has traditionally played to their strongest events.

Texas had a somewhat opposite trajectory, improving their positioning by 19 points in the 400 IM, 6 in the 100 fly, and 14.5 in the 200 free before missing by 18 points in backstroke prelims. The Longhorns gave back 2.5 points from their morning gains in finals, but finished the day with a net positive of 21 more points than their seeded score.

NC State (+23), Harvard (+23), Florida (+15), and Alabama (+10) improved their standings, as well.
