The championships are a one-night competition for each division in which an aggregate score determines a champion. The regular-season standings have no bearing on the championship results.
Division 3 kicked off the championship week action Tuesday. Jones Creek and Woodbridge were the two county pools that competed, but results were not available as of press time. The two pools are natural rivals - Jones Creek feeds Lakeside, and Woodbridge feeds Greenbrier. Woodbridge defeated Jones Creek in a rain-shortened meet earlier in the season.
Division 4's meet is tonight at 6 p.m. The division has the county's largest representation with West Lake, the Augusta Jewish Community Center, Stratford and Glennwood. West Lake is one of the favorites to win after going unbeaten through its first three meets of the season.
On Thursday, Division 2 holds its championship meet.
Farmington and Springlakes represent the county and are natural rivals because they both feed Evans High's swim team.
The final night of competition will be Division 1's championship meet Friday.
Petersburg Racquet Club, Cambridge-Stevens Point and Rivershyre will vie for the Division 1 title. Fermata (Aiken) is the favorite, but Petersburg and Cambridge will contend for the title.
