Townies too much for Villa Novans

January 19, 2011

WOONSOCKET — High school basketball coaches have a lot in common with teachers who send their students through rigorous courses like physics or chemistry. Hoop mentors must stand on the sidelines, trying to explain the finer points of their sport, while players try to absorb those lessons in the midst of competition.
East Providence’s Alex Butler and Woonsocket’s Kyle Ivey-Jones did their best to educate their players on Wednesday night when the Townies visited the Villa Novans for a battle between two sub-.500 Division I teams.

Northmen's Kiernan set to break goal-scoring record

January 19, 2011

NORTH SMITHFIELD — Kayla Kiernan has built up an impressive resume during her fantastic high school hockey career at North Smithfield High.
A state champion and the state’s goal-scoring leader as a freshman. A First-Team All-State pick as a junior, a Second-Team All-Stater as a sophomore. A three-time First-Team All-Division selection. And the list goes on.
And just when you thought she couldn’t top what she’s done, Kiernan has an golden opportunity to tack on two more marvelous feats to her resume -- the state’s all-time goal-scoring leader and first-ever 100-goal scorer.
