As you may have heard there’s a global pandemic going on. One of the more minor impacts of that pandemic has been the disruption of athletics, including swimming. In this post we’re going to compare results from the New York State Section V girls championship meets conducted in Fall 2020 to the same meets conducted in years past.
Welcome to the final post in the State-Off Tournament series. This will be a battle royale meet, with each of the 8 State-Off states competing against all the others at once (or in swimming terms, this is an invitational style meet).
This is it folks, the big one, the finals of the State-Off Tournament, where we’ll see California (1) take on Texas (2) for high school swimming superiority. We’ll also use a t-test to determine whether or not swimmers actually swim faster in finals sessions, when the pressure is on.
Here we have it, the last meet of the State-Off semi-final round, where California (1) takes on the Cinderella story that is Pennsylvania (5) for a trip to the finals.
Welcome to round two of the State-Off. Today we have Texas (2) taking on Florida (3) for the right to compete in the State-Off championships! Don’t forget to update your version of SwimmeR to 0.
Did you know that Ohio’s state song is Hang On Sloopy, best known as a hit for the McCoys in 1965? Me either, but this week in the State-Off Tournament we’ll see if seventh seed Ohio (7) can cough hang on against second seeded Texas (2).
This week in the High School Swimming State-Off Tournament we have the third seeded Sunshine State, Florida (3) taking on the sixth seeded Illinois (6) aka the Prairie State.
This week in the Swimming + Data Science High School Swimming State-Off Tournament we have the 1-8 match-up, my former home of California (1) vs. the Peach Tree State, Georgia (8)!
So it begins - the first match-up of the first round of the first ever Swimming + Data Science High School Swimming State-Off. If you missed the introductory post and are wondering what all this is about you can catch up here.
The spring and summer of 2020 were going to be exciting times here at Swimming + Data Science, with NCAA championships, Olympic trials, and then the big one, the Olympics, on the docket.
