North Providence Edition Sports & Recreation JANUARY 13-19, 2021 valleybreeze.com @ NORTH PROVIDENCE – This is going to be a very interesting season for the North Providence High boys' and girls' swim teams, and that's not just because the Cougars are moving up to the RIIL's second division for their dual meets. The COVID-19 pandemic and the state's Phase 3 guidelines, which have forced every high school sport to make its share of modifications dur- ing this crazy 2020-21 scholastic year, have also laid the groundwork for what will be a truly unusual season in the pool. For the Cougars, it means virtual tri-meets on Friday afternoons – and probably waiting 24-48 hours that weekend to see if they defeated or lost to the two opponents they were scheduled to face that week. It means limited access to the North Providence Pool & Fitness Center – two-hour split-squad workouts on Mondays and Wednesdays and their meets on Fridays – and dry-land workouts and conditioning drills on Tuesdays and Thursdays. And it means question marks across the board as to if, how, when, and where the Cougars will compete in the Division II and state champion- ship meets. North Providence High juniors ANDREA CORTES, above, shown competing in the 100-meter butterfly during a meet last winter, and CASSIE RUSSO, right, are two of the top swimmers back from last year's girls' swim team that broke eight school records on its way to capturing the Division III championship.
