Smithfield junior Morgan McDonald won the event at 5-2.

WESTERLY — The Bulldogs came up 2s and 3s on Wednesday to hang in with the Mariners through most of Wednesday night, but couldn’t score enough in the relays to pull out a Division II win.
“Narragansett has three standout girls,” Westerly coach Willie Barber said. “They are really solid and are among the best in the state.
“We kept getting seconds and thirds in the individual events. That effectively ties the score, since a win counts three points and a second and third gets you two and one points. But in the relays, the winner scores six and the next two get three and one, to trail 6-4.”
Catherine Labriola got the only win for Westerly (0-3-1, 0-2-1 Division II). She won the 100 backstroke with a time of 1 minute, 11.39 seconds. She also placed third in the 100 butterfly (1:16.62), behind second-place teammate Margo Douglas (1:13.09).
Douglas placed third in the 200 individual medley race (2:41.67), behind teammat Kellie Gilluly (2:38.18). Gilluly was runner-up in the 100 breaststroke (1:23.32) and Olivia Bertino was third (1:30.37).
The freestyle races repeated the pattern. Chelsea Fox was second in the 50 free (28.83) and third in the 100 free (1:05.43).
Erika Rohdin placed second in both the 100 free (a personal best 1:00.90) and the 200 free (2:16.07).
Danielle Gilluly was third in the 200 free (2:16.57). She was second in the 500 free (6:15.99) and Tatiana Trevisacci placed third (7:16.33).
Douglas, Fox, Kellie Gilluly and Labriola teamed to finish second in the 200 medley relay. Their combined time was 1:11.50.
Westerly took second and third places in both the 200 free relay and the 400 free relay.
Fox, Danielle Gillluly, and Rohdin had a second-place mark of 1:55.75 in the 200 free relay. Third place was earned by Bertino, Samantha King, Lani Kopperman and Melita Seibel (2:09.46).
