Can Regis make up a 90+ point gap between them and Cherry Creek? Neither team went "Full send" in their league meets. Last year Regis was 25 points behind Fossil Ridge in the same rankings to pull off a last-swim relay win to take the 5A title.
In 4A, Discovery Canyon, Greeley West, and Silver Creek have traded off the top relay spot all season. Currently, Discovery Canyon has regained that position but realistically, any of the 3 have a chance. A possible impact could be the choices that are made for events and if schools have others in what might be "weak" events. The 200 IM and 500 Free look to have gaps in them because many of the current top 20 swimmers may not swim those events because they are seeded higher in other events. This means that if schools are looking for "free points", they should look at moving kids into those events because they have a better chance to score than other events.
Also in 4A... While Broomfield has the top spot in all 3 relays, it's with the same quartet of boys. That's not going to work at State, so which of the 2 will they ride with, or will they split it up and try to cover all 3 with a couple of additional boys? Mathematically, you can cover all 3 relays with 6 athletes, but individual event choices will probably come into play and may determine the final answer.
