PROVIDENCE â€“ The first major meet of the indoor track season was minus one of its fastest runners on Saturday.
Hanging out with his teammates outside the track surface at the Providence Career and Technical Academy field house was Woonsocket High junior Jalen Evans.

WOONSOCKET â€” The legal move by Woonsocket and Pawtucket to overturn the state's school funding formula may be headed for an early court showdown.
Gov. Chafeeâ€™s administration recently filed a motion in Superior Court seeking to have the Woonsocket and Pawtucket suit dismissed. Stephen Robinson, the education law attorney representing the communities, in turn responded with a countering petition.

WOONSOCKET -- After scoring just eight goals in its first three games, Mount St. Charles broke out in a big way offensively on Friday night.
Brandon Borges and Ryan Berard each produced a pair of goals and as many assists for the Mounties, who scored the final seven goals of the game en route to a 9-4 win over Moses Brown in their Division I meeting at Adelard Arena.
