Ponaganset's Casey McGrath runs well in state meet

November 8, 2010

GLOCESTER ---- Casey McGrath, a sophomore from Ponaganset High, crossed the finish line and looked up at the big digital clock.
Burrillville junior Anna Dumais did the same thing at Sunday’s RIIL State Cross-Country Championships.
When you're not considered one of the contenders for an individual title or a top finish, sometimes that’s the best way to determine if your five-kilometer journey was a successful one.
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 “success” category.

Woonsocket gridders turning on 'Friday Night Lights'

November 8, 2010

Welcome to the Division II football playoffs, home of the complex algorithms.
For those who remember the unprecedented five-way tiebreaker of two years ago that tabulated Woonsocket as the odd team out, a refresher course on the wording of the tiebreaker formula was held after Central knocked off Chariho on Friday night. The 40-12 outcome created a three-way logjam atop the II-A standings with Central, Chariho and Johnston all sporting identical 5-2 records.

Author returns to Lincoln to help keep kids safe

November 8, 2010

LINCOLN — One would think the last place Keith Smith, even in adulthood, would want to visit is his hometown.
After all, this is the place where — at age 14 — he had been abducted, beaten and raped by a warped pedophile who had a penchant for violence and sexual abuse against children.
On the contrary, Smith indicated he reveled in his return to Lincoln on this October night. Surrounded mostly by close friends during his childhood and teen-age years, Smith explained to his audience the happenings of that horrifying night — March 1, 1974 — and why he kept it a secret for over three decades.

North Smithfield clinches first-ever playoff berth

November 7, 2010

PROVIDENCE – The hole was just too big to climb out of.
A gutsy second half effort by North Smithfield wasn’t enough to knock Mount Pleasant from the unbeaten ranks in Division IV on Saturday as the Northmen left Conley Field with a 28-22 loss.

Woonsocket roughs up West Warwick, 29-0

November 7, 2010

WOONSOCKET — Carnell Henderson had a hunch that West Warwick wouldn’t be a pushover. After watching game film of Saturday’s Division II-B opponent this week, the Woonsocket High coach felt the Wizards were a much better outfit than their 1-5 league mark indicated.
He was right…at least for the second half.
Luckily for Henderson’s crew, it took care of nearly all of its business in the game’s first two quarters en route to a 29-0 blanking of the Wizards on Senior Day at Barry Field. For the league’s top defensive team, the shutout is the Villa Novans fifth of the season.

Hospital Trust building on the market for $625,000

November 6, 2010

WOONSOCKET – You might say they don't build 'em like this anymore, but the truth is, they hardly ever built 'em like this, especially in the throes of the Great Depression.
With its cavernous marble lobby and skylit mezzanine, the Rhode Island Hospital Trust building is a downtown landmark that evokes a time, difficult to imagine now, when Woonsocket was a hub of commerce and wealth.
And now, it can all be yours for a mere $625,000.

Cumberland spikers win playoff opener with ease

November 5, 2010

CUMBERLAND --- It’s been seven years since Cumberland High last captured a playoff game, but on Thursday night, the Clippers ended that drought in a big way in its Division II preliminary-round match with Warwick Vets High.
Michaela Leblanc and Michelle Malboeuf had solid games at the net and Robyn Andrade and Jessica Larivee keyed a strong showing from the service line for the Clippers in their easy 3-0 triumph at the Clippers' Wellness Center.

Burrillville, N.S. seek playoff berths this weekend

November 5, 2010

While the fates of politicians were decided on Election Day, the fates of five playoff-hopeful Blackstone Valley clubs could be determined as early as this weekend or as late as Thanksgiving morning.
When October ended, so did much of the drama in the Division II-B playoff race. Last weekend’s play saw the top three seeds etched in stone in Tolman (6-0), Woonsocket (5-1), and St. Raphael (4-2) and the final spot still up for grabs between Mount Hope and Toll Gate.
