2017 SPEEDO WINTER JUNIOR CHAMPIONSHIPS

Winter Junior Nationals wrapped up a couple weeks ago. These meets produce a champion for both the Eastern and Western halves of the country, but do not produce a national team champion. However, there is nothing stopping us from simply combining the results of the two meets, scoring it out, and seeing what would have happened in a combined meet. So I merged the two meets together using finals times and scored through 16 places.

The East region dominated this hypothetical.  The top 4 teams SwimMAC, Mason Manta Rays, Carmel Swim Club, and Nashville Aquatics were all from the East. The top Western team, Fort Collins Area, was 5th. The East accumulated 4072 total points vs the West’s 3077, however the Western women actually outscored their Eastern couterparts 1808 to 1764. The East’s advantage was entirely down to the men who outscored the West by over 1000 points

Combined Women Men
East 4072 1764 2308
West 3077 1808 1269

In the official results released by USASwimming, the combined scores included only teams that scored in both genders. It seemed odd to exclude teams from the combined score for something that’s a disadvantage, so I have not repeated that here. 4 teams ranked in the combined meet top 10 scored with only 1 gender. If you want to dig deeper into the results, here is the combined meet spreadsheet.

One quick note on the scoring format. I didn’t account for ties. If for example two swimmers tied for 3rd, they were both awarded 3rd place points instead of splitting 3rd and 4th place points. This shouldn’t affect any team’s score by more than a couple of points, but it is a slight source of error, so I thought I’d mention it.

Those nashville girls tore up the east meet!! All those points from like 6 girls is a lot!

So cool!
Thanks for doing that!

Interesting to see so few swim clubs have balanced scoring from both boys and girls. Looks like a lot of clubs had zeros on either the boys side or girls side. Random chance or what?
