Snow driving school sports officials crazy

January 27, 2011

There was eight to 12 inches of snowfall on Thursday morning. Last Friday, it was about a foot. And for the season, close to 45 inches have hit the region.

January 27, 2011

The dual-meet season for R.I. boys’ and girls’ indoor track will officially wrap up by Tuesday of next week, barring another snowstorm (or two?).
That’s just the warm-up.
Beginning late next week, teams will be duking it out at the Providence Athletic Facility in their respective divisional championships. A week later, they’re back on the oval in their class meets and then on Saturday, Feb. 19, schools statewide will compete on the big stage in the annual state championships.
For our local athletes and teams, a lot can happen in those next few weeks.
