PROVIDENCE â€“ Unbeaten Tolman High, which has won two of the last three Division II state volleyball championships, found itself in a heap of trouble on Sunday night in the 2014 tourney semifinals against West Warwick.
The Tigers were tied 2-2 after four games had been completed at the Providence Career and Technical Academyâ€™s sports facility off Westminster Street, right next to Central Highâ€™s campus.
â€śWe needed to win,â€ť Tolmanâ€™s Eric Silveira admitted after the Tigers pulled out a 15-9 victory in the decisive fifth game. â€śThere was a lot of pressure on us.â€ť
