Post season play saw mixed results for the Vineyard high school teams over the weekend.
In softball, the Vineyard bats were completely silenced in the first round of the state tournament, as the team fell 15-0 to number 15 seed Cardinal Spellman last Thursday.
In boys’ tennis, the team swept Canton on home court last Friday in the first round of the MIAA division three team tournament. At number two singles, Kent Leonard blanked his opponent 6-0, 6-0, while Justice Yennie lost just two games to win his match 6-1, 6-1. Number one doubles players Jackson McBride and Patrick McCarthy made quick work of Canton for a 6-0, 6-1 win, giving the Vineyard the match victory early on.
At number one singles, Reid Yennie fought through a 90-minute first set against Canton freshman Viboosh Chardraseker before taking the tie-breaking game. With Reid up 4-3 in the second set, his opponent was disqualified by Canton coach Leo Nelson for unsportsmanlike conduct.
The number two doubles match was also pushed to three sets, with Justin Smith and Ryan Sawyer falling 4-6 in the first set only to bounce back and take the next two 6-1, 6-0 for the victory.
