The pre-selection psych sheets for the 2019 NCAA Division I Men’s Swimming and Diving Championships have been posted. The official psych sheet will be released on Wednesday. The line for the cut-off is usually around 29th or 30th place. Swimming World will publish the official psych sheet when it comes available.

Cal senior Andrew Seliskar has elected to swim the 200 IM, 200 free and 200 breast this year instead of the 400 IM like he did in 2018. This may or may not be the first time someone has swum the 200 free and 200 breast in the same NCAA championships.
