"We had some really good swims today," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Cathy Motta. "The men's team is in the rebuilding phase graduating 7 seniors and having some young talent to develop. The womens team swam well against a much improved Babson program."

UMass Dartmouth's men and women are now both 0-1, while the Beaver men are 2-0 and the women are 1-1.

The Corsairs will return to action when they visit the University of New England next Saturday. The Beavers will host WPI November 12th.
