A reminder of the scoring rules:
Virtual meets are scored based solely on 2020 results using the standard dual meet scoring points format of 5-3-1 for individuals and 5-0 for relays. Athletes are scored in no more than four events (although the processing program does not include relay names). Teams are limited to three athletes per event.
