* The Dolphins swim mostly Dual Meets, so the areas highlighted in yellow represent the scoring method used for most regular season meets.  In each individual event, only 3 swimmers can score points and in relay events only 1 team can score points.

** The Dolphins swim in a multi-team league championship meet (SENECYs) at the end of the season.  The areas highlighted in green represent the scoring method used at the 2014-2015 meet which was held in a 6 lane pool.  The scoring method for the 2015-2016 SENECY championship meet may change since the meet will be held in a 10 lane pool.
