Exhibition swims happen in high school swimming as well. And that’s exactly why it occurs in HS swimming- the coaches are all friends and it makes the loss look less painful when AD’s look at scores. My high school team (25 swimmers) swam against a team of 10 kids and they only lost by 20 points, where in reality we won by triple digit amounts. It’s not just college swimming.

Swam all my life and I honestly still couldn’t tell you how many points are awarded to 1st 2nd or 3rd place.
