"We were happy with the wins," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Cathy Motta. "We are a little tired from the past two weeks of double sessions, and it was a bit of an adjustment to compete in a 25 meter pool. The men's team stepped, going 1-2 in the final relay to win the meet."
The Corsair men are now 2-3, while the women are 2-6. The Blazer men are 3-2, while the women are 1-9. The Corsairs will return to action when they visit Bentley Monday.
