The M.I.S.C.A. dream team is made up of athletes from all three state meets and is based on the following criteria:
- The fastest state meet performance in each event; relay leadoff times are considered.
- An athlete may only receive the honor in 1 individual event. If an athlete has multiple #1 performances the runner up performances in each event are factored in. The better of the runner up swims is chosen based on the NISCA Power Point scores.
- If there is a tie in the relays both teams will be chosen.
- If there is an individual tie and neither swimmer is #1 in another event both swimmers will be chosen.
