The pre-selection psych sheet for the 2019 NCAA Division I Women’s Swimming and Diving Championships have been released. The official psych sheet will be released on Wednesday. The line for the cut-off is usually around 36th or 37th place. Swimming World will publish the official psych sheet when it comes available.

There weren’t too many surprises on the entry list. Stanford senior Ella Eastin is in her usual three events–the 200 & 400 IM, and the 200 fly. This isn’t a surprise but considering Eastin became the seventh fastest performer in the 200 back over the weekend, she could have gone either the 200 back or 200 fly on the last day of the meet.
