"This is a non-scoring meet that we hold annually to allow student-athletes to compete in events that they may not otherwise be able to swim during a typical collegiate dual meet," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Cathy Motta. "It also allows the coaches to take a look at other events that their swimmers may be able to qualify for championships in."

The Corsairs will return to action when they visit Bentley next Saturday.
