Doc,
Got it. Here are standard deviations for the top 27 women at ACCs last year. I can put in a time and it will predict splits. Then input the actual splits and see the deviation. Got the R-square and coefficients on other sheets. Currently in the yellow box: Swimmer is 1.4 SD faster than mean in the free leg and .78 slower in back. She was at trials in the 800 free. The ACC champion, row 2, has a tight SD in all strokes.

Percentages are great but linear. I like SD because it can guide the level of emphasis. For example, row 15, 1.72 back, -1.76 breast. Probably a breaststroker but man does she need to work on backstroke. She’s in the bottom 10% of the group for that stroke.
