Team Rankings are based on 2 factors:
1)      A projected State Meet. Previous season’s returning swimmers & re-scoring relays after replacing missing relay swimmers. This ‘projected State Meet’ groups teams who are close together. As the season progresses new swimmers develop into likely top-8/16 finishers; returning swimmers are lost (sick, injured, transfers, etc.); and most importantly new key relay swimmers are developed. The projected relay placement changes substantially as the season progresses. 2)      Then the second factor is the estimation of the relative dual meet strength of teams. This factor is largely used to sort teams who are close together in the State Meet Projection. Actual dual meet results are figured into this relative dual meet strength

    Not sure when the rankings were done for the boys but for the group to rank AAP in the top 10 and no mention of AA Huron???wow. Those should be flip-flopped. or maybe that was a mistake?

      Please note that AA Huron is ranked 2nd in Division 2.

    Are they ever going to updated the team rankings?

      We do not have a set date for rankings updates, they are done by a third party who works with several organizations, including NISCA. Feel free to ask your head coach to contact their MISCA Zone VP with additional questions and comments.

    How does the top times differentiate Divisions? It seems that the top times list when you select Division 3 has many other division athletes listed. For example there are marian swimmers listed but MHSAA says they are D2.

      Marian is D3 this year.
      Take a look at the note in the top right corner of the listing, the list is from March of 2016 and the MHSAA says they will not update the list. We have notified the MHSAA about it and have asked that they update the list.

    It looks like PrepSwimming only tracks swimming times, how will you track diving scores?

      You can view diving results by clicking on individual meets, but there is not an option to see them in the “Times” screen. I have sent an email to them asking for assistance. Thanks

    The MISCA meet was great this year! there some of the best swimmers in the country at this meet. i’m wondering why only the phych sheets are posted when the meet times were much faster? as far as top times?

      The meet results are posted under the meet results link.
      In regards to the top times list, we went to a new method 2 years ago which requires coaches to submit their teams times. This method does not allow us to pull meet results from our end. The new method has several great advantages which outweigh the inability to pull meet results.
      It is our hope that coaches would want to celebrate their teams accomplishments and would therefore send in their times.

    I noticed that the records for boys 200 IM are reversed. Cameron Craig should be 1st and Chris Klein should be last.

    noticed on the D2 diving most divers scores from Holland d3 invite. didn’t see Otsego h.s. divers name as he came in 2nd to Jordan smith from Chelsea with a 400 plus pts. wondering if his score was not posted

      The list is made up of scores and times that coaches send in. I don’t see Otsego anywhere on the D2 list which would lead me to believe that Otsego is not sending in scores/times. Please contact the Otsego coach with your concerns.

      Also, Otsego is a D3 team. There are a few times on the times list form OTS, which could be Otsego. The MHSAA has Otsego with a different abbreviation. Either way, I would communicate with the coach to make sure the times and scores are being sent in

    We have gentleman that works with a few state associations that does the rankings for us. He uses a combination of projected state meet finish along with dual meet performances.
    He’s pretty spot on and does a great job.

        How do you determine team rankings as well?

    Would be great if someone could get the Detroit PSL results for the 1940s and 1950s in the results section. They did not compete in the state meet (not sure why) but their meet at that time was typically faster than the state meet.

      I’m happy to post any of those historical big meets. If you know where we can find them please let me know. I spent a full day at the Hall of Fame in Ft. Lauderdale a few years back to dig up those ’40’s and ’50’s results, but that was about all they had.
