Programs competing in team sports earn more points based on their successes because of the cumulative, simultaneous effort of the group. Also, though individual sports do not typically earn more points after individual performances are added, the difference is much smaller.

Teams that win a state championship in a team sport are not given cumulative points, meaning 50+40+30, Etc. for winning a quarterfinal or semifinal game. The team’s ultimate finish dictates how many points are earned.

Individuals who win a state championship in an individual sport are not given cumulative points, meaning 10+8+6, Etc. for reaching a semifinal or winning a regional title, too. An athlete’s ultimate finish dictates how many points are earned for his/her team.

Because swimming and diving does not have a regional meet, league meets are counted as regionals, and points are reflected as such.
