Re: Finishing 12th seems disappointing.


the gap between 6th and 15th in team points was less than 100 points (not a lot when relays in finals score 40-36-34-32-30-28-26-24, and consols 18-14-12-10-8-6-4-2); what really hurt UVA was lack of sprint strength, particularly in freestyle, and lack of a backstroker to replace Bartholomew from last year) - now that the NCAA has introduced the 200 medley and 200 free relay, relay points make up a disproportionate percentage of the total meet scoring points, (events that most of the teams that scored in the 6-11 range scored in), the focus of scoring has shifted. A team needs to score and final in 3-4 relays to have a shot at top 5.
6th - Louisville 194.5 points had 3 women score in individual events;(but scored in all 5 relays, 4 finals)
7th - NCSU 194 points had 5 women score in individual events; but scored in 4 relays, 3 finals)
8th - Indiana 185 points had 6 women score in individual events; (but scored in 3 relays, 2 finals)
9th - USC 176 points had 7 women score in individual events; (but scored in 5 relays, 3 finals)
10th - Minnesota 168 points had 5 women score in individual events; (but scored in 3 relays, no finals)
11th - Michigan 159 points had 7 women score in individual events; (scored in 2 relays, 1 final)
12 - UVA 149 points - had 4 women score in individual events; (2 relays, no finals)
