Mythical National Championships

USMS national championships are held twice every year, but not everyone can go. In addition, there is no championship in short-course meters. The following tabulations, grouped at the Zone, LMSC and Club level, show what might happen if there was a national championship in all three courses and EVERYONE showed up. They are based on the national Top Ten results with a scoring system of 12-10-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 for the ten individual places; points for relays are doubled.
