18&U Winter Championships Results Finalized, TAC Titans Win Team Title

2020 18 & UNDER WINTER CHAMPIONSHIPS

The combined results of the multi-site 18 & Under Winter Championships have been finalized, capping a virtual win for North Carolina’s TAC Titans.

FORMAT

In a pandemic-adjusted season, USA Swimming’s Winter Junior Championships are taking place as a multi-site competition. Results from any sanctioned meet between December 1 and December 13 will count for Winter Championships scoring, with an unlimited number of meet results in that time frame being combined to create the final results.

Athletes’ ages were locked in as of the first day of the competition, and they must have already had a time standard in an event for that event to count toward the standings.

Only a swimmer’s 6 highest-placing events are counted toward the champioships, both for individual placement and team scoring.

Final Results

USA Swimming compiled results on its website – you can play around with the tool here.

East coast dominating. I’m sure the pandemic is partly responsible but the fastest swimming really seems to be in the east and especially the southeast these days.

Most of California was locked down after the 1st weekend of December. If you didn’t have a sanctioned intrasquad meet that first weekend – you didn’t swim. Most meets were cancelled.

I’m sure that the lockdowns had some effect but there’s also the fact that a ton of the top high school juniors and seniors just happen to be from North Carolina, Virginia, Tennessee, Georgia and Florida.

Yeah, pretty sketchy. Some other Illinois teams competed as well, but swam unattached. The rules don’t apply to us…great lesson to teach your team!

Illinois swimming said you can’t have a meet or go out the state but USA swimming said other wise

Any chance of any Californians swimming at a meet this year have all been decided by one man.

For highschool swimming, his guidelines just placed outdoor swim in the purple tier. Meaning of things stay as they are or improve, ca is getting a highschool swim season.

Here in FL most of the outdoor-based teams were back in the water at the end of May and the high school season started in late August as normal, though with the first few duals meets held as virtual. We’ve also seen a number of northern families who have rented places here and enrolled their kids in school so they can keep training with local teams down here after their programs were shut down up north. That’s a reason why you see more swimming as “Unattached” at meets.

Huske won on the female side since she had 6 events and Curzan only had 5 and Walsh only had 4. Guessing Aikins on the boys side? Only won 1 event but had finishes of 3/2/4/4/1, that beats Grimm and any other obvious ones that I see.

Too bad relays couldn’t be included. Such a huge part of the traditional meet.
