High school playoff brackets set


On Friday, the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA) released seedings, brackets, and opening matches for team sports in the spring state tournaments.

The Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School (MVRHS) girls and boys tennis teams, girls lacrosse, and the girls and boys track teams all qualified for the postseason.

The girls tennis team claimed the No. 2 seed in the Division 2 South Sectional with a 15-0 regular-season record, and earned a preliminary-round bye. The Vineyarders will host the winner of No. 15 Middleboro (12-7) vs. No. 18 Holliston (9-8) on Tuesday at 4 pm at the Ned Fennessy Courts in Oak Bluffs.

The Vineyard boys tennis team (14-2) is seeded sixth, and also sits out the South preliminary round before meeting No. 11 Cape Cod Academy (12-6) in the first round on Wednesday at 4 pm in Oak Bluffs.

Girls lacrosse earned the seventh seed with a 13-5 record, and will host No. 10 Old Colony (15-2) in the South Sectional first round, at a time and date to be determined.

Track standouts Mackenzie Condon and Nate Packer will represent MVRHS at the Massachusetts All-State Meet, Saturday at Fitchburg State University, with Condon also competing at the Outdoor Nationals, June 15-17, at North Carolina A&T State University in Greensboro.
