PROVIDENCE â€” For the past several months, Jalen Evans has been punishing his opponents with his blazing speed on the football field.
In his inaugural season of track and field, the Woonsocket High sophomore is hoping to do the same on the indoor oval.
â€śI am very confident,â€ť Evans said. â€śWhen I see my competition, I get very excited. My adrenaline starts pumping. I just want to be at full speed. When I am at full speed, it feels great.â€ť
WOONSOCKET â€” From year to year, they've featured scenes that are quintessentially Woonsocket â€” the facade of the Stadium Theatre, the historic Court Street Bridge, the stately sidewalk clock from McCarthy's department store.
Now the city is offering a new installment of those limited edition Christmas tree ornaments, and this season they commemorate not one, but two of the city's venerable institutions: its police and fire departments.
CUMBERLAND â€” Defending state champion Cumberland is not the early-season favorite to repeat, according to no less an authority than Clippers head coach Steve Gordon.
â€śWarwick Veterans is loaded,â€ť Gordon was saying on Wednesday morning, a few hours before his Clippers would face North Providence and Mount Hope in a double-dual meet at Pilgrim High. â€śThey finished six points behind us last year in the state meet and didnâ€™t lose anybody.â€ť
