High Point Award. This award is given to individual swimmers from each age group and gender who have scored the most points for the team over the course of the season. This includes all dual meets, DCSL Championship meet, and County meet (excluded are Time Trials, Orange and Blue, and invitationals Devil Mountain Pentathlon, Woodlands, Crossings Challenge, and City Championship).
Medal Awards Program. This allows each swimmer the opportunity to earn a medal for consistent improvement. A bronze, silver, or gold medal is awarded based on how many improved times (often referred to as popped times) the swimmer achieves over the course of the season. Improved times are counted in all individual strokes (not relays) at any meet or invitational. For example, a swimmer may have 3 improvements in butterfly and 7 improvements in freestyle for a total of 10 time improvements over the course of the season. Medals are awarded as follows:
BRONZE. 5 to 9 improved times
SILVER. 10 to 15 improved times
