"We had a great meet today," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Cathy Motta. " We were a little flat and had a hard time getting going the first couple of events in part to the days off due to the storm. We are very excited about being 2-0 and are hoping to carry our momentum into the Bridgewater meet on Tuesday. The seniors on our women's team experienced their first victory over the Nor'easters, and the men are far ahead of where they were last season."
UMass Dartmouth's women are now 2-0, while the UNE women are 1-1. UNE's men are a club team, so the meet does not count in the overall record for the UMD men's team.
The Corsairs will return to action when they host the University of New England next Saturday.
