Kenwood, '78 track team among inductees at CHS Hall of Fame Friday night

November 27, 2010

With its stone-bricked structure and its round towers, the Cranston Street Armory resembled a castle.
Inside the dingy old building in the west end of Providence, it was anything but a castle.

On any given wintry night, heat was sometimes an option and the excessive dust that floated around the air would burn your throat.

Woonsocket battles Chariho in Div. II semifinals on Tuesday

November 27, 2010

WOONSOCKET — Woonsocket High is holding one major ace in the hole heading into Tuesday night’s Division II semifinal showdown against Chariho.
The Villa Novans’ defense comes to play every game, and gives up touchdowns only on the rarest of occasions. Woonsocket shut out six opponents this year and allowed only 20 points in eight games against Division II foes this season. Division II-B champion Tolman dented Woonsocket for one score in a 6-0 win back in September and Mount Hope collected 14 in a 34-14 loss in late October.

That was no flat-screen TV in the box, like the label said. That was Alex Camperone's trophy.
It was his prize for spending most of a drizzly and raw, post-Thanksgiving night waiting outside the Target store at Lincoln Mall.
Those other folks in a line of customers that snaked halfway around the mall, waiting, along with Camperone, for the store to open – they were Camperone's rivals in a hungry quest for doorbuster bargains.
