NORTH SMITHFIELD – After putting together an impressive eight-match win streak that improved its Division II-North record to 12-1, the North Smithfield High boys' volleyball team will head into this week's D-II playoffs with three straight losses to postseason-bound squads. After suffering 3-0 defeats to Mount Pleasant and Tolman, the Northmen were dealt a 3-1 loss last Friday night at home to regular-season champion Central, which won its 14th straight match and will be the North's top seed in the play- offs. Despite those three defeats, the Northmen will be the North's second seed and host the South's third seed, Pilgrim, in tonight's 5 p.m. quarterfi- nals. The winner of that match will advance to the semifi- nals on Tuesday, June 12, at Cranston West High and most likely face undefeated Division II-South regular-season cham- pion East Greenwich. "I expect good things in the playoffs," first-year North Smithfield head coach Brad Walling said after his team's 25-17, 25-19, 25-20 loss last Tuesday, May 29, to Tolman. On May 3 at the Northmen's gym, North Smithfield was able to roll past Tolman by scores of 25-12, 26-24, 25-21, but the Tigers, who will be the North's third seed in the play- offs, got their revenge in the rematch. Walling admitted that his team had been struggling, but he was relying on his two senior captains, middle hitter Tejas Bhatia and outside hitter Noah Darveau, to bring the fire back to his team.
