In the event that Franklin County announces a Level 2 Snow Emergency on or before 7 a.m. on Friday, then all Friday events will be converted from a Prelims/Finals format to a Timed Finals format with warm-ups beginning at 4:10 p.m. and competition beginning at 5:30 p.m. The warm-up schedule announced for Prelims will be followed if this change occurs and Time Trials will be held at the end of the session.
Refunds will not be given to account for the difference in the Prelims/Finals and Timed Finals formats, since the facility has already assumed the cost to host the meet; however swimmers who are within a ½ second per 50 yards of the JO cut who finished in the top 16 for their event will be permitted to reenter that same event in time trials at no additional cost to the swimmer or team. This excludes events that were initially planned as timed final events. Per Ohio Swimming rules for Timed Finals, a maximum of five individual swims will be permitted for the day.
