There are a number of very fast mid-season invitationals going on in college swimming right now. It has been difficult to keep up with everything and compare where other schools are with everything. So Swimming World decided to compile a running list of the top eight times from the first round of mid-season invites to put everything in perspective.

There are about six major invites going on in Division I currently with Texas A&M, Iowa, Ohio State, Georgia Tech, Indiana and Missouri hosting some pretty quick invites right now.

The Texas A&M Invite started Wednesday, so we already have data from them for “day two” but we put their times from the day one events below. The Missouri Invite also put the 100 fly on Thursday night but we will put them with the day two data tomorrow.

The Indiana Invite seems to be the quickest meet going on in college swimming currently with four of the top spots out of the ten events. Georgia Tech has three while Iowa, Missouri and Ohio State each have one.
