WESTERLY — Westerly High finished the Division II dual meet season with a record of 6-1 this season.

All dual meets this season were virtual contests due to the coronavirus pandemic. Teams swam in their own pools and the coaches exchanged times and later agreed on scores.

The Bulldogs will compete in the Division II championships next week. In the past, one meet was held and all the teams in Division II sent swimmers.

This season, due to the pandemic, teams will compete head-to-head in a playoff bracket. Teams, which will be limited to 12 swimmers each, will swim in the same pool. Westerly expects to host quarterfinal and semifinal meets.

Results from five meets were recently submitted.
