While a number of summer leagues succumbed to the coronavirus pandemic, the Prince-Mont Swim League is about to embark on an abbreviated season this weekend and five Charles County teams are among the 16 squads competing.

In most seasons, the Prince-Mont League was comprised of 35 or 36 teams split into six divisions, with five meets of dual meets followed by the Divisional Championships and the All-Stars meet. But this year, Prince-Mont will consist of just 16 teams split evenly among four divisions, with dual meets contested virtually — teams will not travel — starting this Saturday and the next two Saturdays followed by the divisional meets to conclude the season on Aug. 1 with no All-Stars meet.
