Tiverton tennis ends regular season with win but banned from playoffs


Tiverton ended its regular season on a winning note, knocking off West Warwick last week 4-3, and posting a 7-5 league record for the season. The team finished in a three-way tie for second place in Divison III Central B.

That's it for the Tigers who won't go to the playoffs this year due to league sanctions. A forfeiture in last year's first-round playoffs match led to Tiverton being ruled out of this year's playoffs.

Tiverton will play its final match of the season this upcoming Tuesday at the Salve Regina tennis courts in Newport versus Somerset in the annual Stenning Cup Exhibition.

Scores in the West Warwick match were:


1. RJ Leso (WW) def. Rob Walsh (Tiv) 6-3, 6-0

2. Josiah Schaffer (WW) def. Andy Sampaio (Tiv) 6-3, 6-0

3. Dylan Clement (Tiv) def. Rachel Lachapelle (WW) 6-0, 6-0

4. Dominic Payer (Tiv) def. Kendra Quimby (WW) 6-4, 6-0
