Below is the list of North Carolina Swimming athletes who finished with a Top Five time in one or more short course events during the period beginning on Sept 1, 2019 and ending on March 15, 2020 (athletes are listed by club code). Top Fives are listed by age group – 10U, 11-12, 13-14, 15-16, and 17-18.
Since there was not a true long course season and limited opportunities for most swimmers to compete after the COVID outbreak, this year’s awards are based on short course achievements and rankings beginning on Sept 1, 2019 and ending on March 15, 2020.
Top Five age group rankings should not be confused with the NCS Top Ten rankings, which are listed by individual age. Top Five achievement also has nothing to do with order of finish at NCS championship meets, but are based on age group rankings at the end of the qualifying period…which this year was March 15, 2020.
