A strong Cohasset side defeated the young Vineyard tennis team last Thursday, taking the south section division three semifinal match 4-1. Freshman Finn Simpkins, playing at third singles, earned the Vineyard's lone win of the day.
The team, seeded second in the bracket, closes their season with a 15-2 record. Cohasset, entering as the number three seed with a 17-2 record, went on to defeat Pope John Paul in the section finals, and advance to the state tournament itself.
All but one of the varsity squad will return next year. Senior captain Patrick McCarthy, a four-year varsity player and member of both of the Vineyard's state championship teams, graduated Sunday.
