Choice course of

1. 35 of the lads’s spots and 41 of the ladies’s spots are put aside for divers, who qualify for the meet at zone competitions nearer the NCAA Championships. That leaves 235 males’s spots and 281 for the ladies.

2. Each ‘A’ minimize put up this season is added.

3. The following quickest swimmers in every occasion are added till each occasion has the identical variety of entries. For instance, if the 50 free have been to have probably the most ‘A’ cuts of any occasion with 10, then each different occasion would get swimmers with the highest 10 quickest instances in.

4. Lastly, one entry is added to every occasion to maintain the entries per occasion even. This course of is repeated till all the swimming spots (235 for males, 281 for girls) are crammed. Needless to say as extra rows are added, swimmers will begin to double and triple up. The #1 seed within the 200 again could be the #15 seed within the 100 again – because the fifteenth row of swimmers is added to every occasion, she’ll be added to the 100 again listing, however gained’t take up one other one of many 281 invite spots, as she already has her official invite.

So the 100 fly might have 38 ladies and the 200 fly 39 ladies – that may imply the thirty ninth 200 flyer was nearer to the NCAA ‘A’ minimize than the thirty ninth 100 flyer and due to this fact gained the ‘tie-breaker’ for the ultimate spot.
