Mt. Hope moves on to tennis Division finals.


The Mt. Hope tennis team will potentially face its toughest opponent this year when they go up against Scituate High School in Saturday’s Division 3 Championship.

The Huskies earned the championship bid on Thursday, Oct. 17 when they beat Coventry High School in the semi-finals at Barrington High School. Mt. Hope took that match 4-1.

The Mt. Hope girls went undefeated in 14 games this season against their Division 3 East competitors. At Saturday’s finals they will face the equally undefeated Coventry team from the Division 3 West.

The winner of that match up, to be played at Slater Park at 11 a.m., will claim the Division title.

Are there still plans to eliminate this sport from Bristol? If so, I think it is a shame.
