The Northmen picked up their victories from Tiana Ahmed, who defeated Scituate’s Jackie Youngdahl in second singles, 7-6, 6-4; Leah McCarvill, who topped Morgan Berard in fourth singles, 6-4, 6-2; and the first doubles team of McKenzie Byrne and Leilani Felician, which posted a 6-1, 7-6 victory over the Spartans’ team of Meghan Godbout and Lindsay Cathcart.
The Northmen, who were the No. 3 seed from the East, wrap up an outstanding season with their second straight 10-5 record. They are 38-11 over the past three seasons.
