    Our results page ranks swimmers based on their best time in the meet, regardless of whether it was achieved in prelims, finals, or lead-off times in relays. We use standard age groups to separate the meet results, such as 8 & under, 9-10, 11-12, 13-14, 15-16, and 17-18, which may not always align with the specific age groupings used by the meet organizers.
