Both members of The Commonwealth Coast Conference, Endicott and Western New England finished the regular season tied for first place in the league with identical 9-1 TCCC records. The Gulls, however, held the tiebreaker due to the head-to-head victory at a WNEC hosted tri-match in Springfield.
Endicott had its playoff run cut short when the Gulls dropped a 3-0 decision to eventual conference champion Roger Williams in TCCC semifinal action last week. The Golden Bears were also ousted from the postseason by the Hawks, falling 3-1 in the conference final.
