A swimmer/diver may compete in up to 4 events total per meet. No more than 2 events can be individual.  (eg. 2 individual events and 2 relays or 1 individual event and 3 relays)


Relays first 3 finishing relays score: 1st – 8 points; 2nd – 4 points; 3rd – 2 points.

Individual Events first 5 finishers score points: 1st – 6 points; 2nd – 4 points; 3rd – 3 points; 4th – 2 points; 5th – 1 point.

Diving – total scores are multiplied by the degree of difficulty (DD) assigned to each dive.

Disqualification (DQ) a swimmer may be disqualified for a false start, illegal touch, illegal stroke, or not touching the wall on a turn.

Total points for a meet is 186 (94 pts for a win) with JV and Varsity scored separately. The Big 9 conference has a mercy rule of sorts. Once a team reaches 94 points, Points are only "scored" for the other team.
