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 Academyâs sports facility off Westminster Street, right next to Central Highâs campus.
âWe needed to win,â Tolmanâs Eric Silveira admitted after the Tigers pulled out a 15-9 victory in the decisive fifth game. âThere was a lot of pressure on us.â
