Lani Kopperman was the other Westerly singles player that qualified. She was the sixth seed among Divison II players in the tournament.

Kopperman (14-2) lost 6-0, 6-0 in the opening round to Peri Sheinin, the No. 2 singles player for East Greenwich and the sixth seed among the Division I players.

Westerly’s Renee Cordio and Emily Palma (12-2) will team to play in doubles starting at 9 a.m. today in Slater Park.
