There was little change at the top of the individual high point rankings on the final day of the 2014 U.S. National Championships, thanks to a sleepy Sunday in Irvine.

That means that Missy Franklin from Cal and Matt Grevers from Tucson Ford Dealers Aquatics took home the honors for the most individual points scored at the meet, based on the standard 16-place scoring system outlined below.

Franklin’s results:

  • 100 free – 1st – 53.43
  • 200 free – 2nd – 1:56.40
  • 200 back – 1st – 2:08.38
  • 100 back – 1st – 59.38

Grevers’ results:

  • 100 free – 6th – 49.12
  • 50 fly – 1st – 23.50
  • 50 back – 4th – 25.18
  • 100 back – 1st – 52.75
  • 50 free – 5th – 22.25

In addition, American Katie Ledecky was given the meet’s “Performance Award,” which is given to the swimmer who had the single most outstanding performance of the meet based on FINA power points. With only 1 World Record being broken in Irvine, Katie Ledecky’s World-Record breaking 3:58.86 was the only candidate for this award, earning 1003 points.
