"We swam great, we had a super meet," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Cathy Motta. "All of the hard work throughout the season certainly paid off, and all of our athletes swam seasonal or personal bests. It was great to see our athletes rewarded for their hard work and dedication over the 19 week training season. Now we can look forward to next weekend with the men."
The Corsairs will return to action at the NEISDA Men's Championships at Roger Williams next weekend.
