Eight teams will square off today-- weather permitting -- in the Division II playoffs. And perhaps six of them could actually win the state title that will be decided this coming Sunday at Rhode Island College.
â€śOur division is very close,â€ť Lincoln coach John Dâ€™Aloisio admitted over the weekend. His Lions host North Smithfield at 4 p.m. today.
A day-long rain is in the forecast. Any games postponed today likely would be made up on Tuesday.

For the two local harriers as well as several others, the clock showed just the kind of numbers that would put their performances in that â€śsuccessâ€ť category.
