PROVIDENCE --- Woonsocket High earned the dual-meet crown in the Dwyer Division with a sweep of Ponaganset and West Warwick. The Villa Novans, last yearâ€™s divisional champions, concluded a perfect 8-0 season in the league.
â€śOne of the goals this year was to try and go undefeated,â€ť said WHS coach Dan Richard. â€śI am not sure a Woonsocket girlsâ€™ team has ever done that in indoor. That was one of the goals. We got some new girls out this year that helped. Itâ€™s been a good year. They worked hard in practice and stayed focused on what we needed to do.â€ť
WOONSOCKET --- Sophomore Cody Lâ€™Heureux had one of the best games of his young high school career on Monday night, as he scored 18 points in a losing cause in Woonsocket Highâ€™s 73-56 defeat at home to Cranston West High.
Jabree Roberts added 13 points and Jarome Robinson also tossed in 11 for the Villa Novans, who are 1-12 in Division I play and 4-14 overall.
WOONSOCKET --- After cruising to a pair of lopsided Division I victories over the weekend, Mount St. Charles Academy got just what it needed on Monday night -- a competitive contest against one of the top public school teams in Eastern Mass.
The Mounties turned in one of their best games of the season and received strong contributions from all three of their lines and goaltender Dan Foster in a closer-than-it-appears 5-0 win over Needham High at Adelard Arena.
WOONSOCKET â€” Having lost the use of his legs, Donald Paterson doesn't leave his third-floor apartment at Kennedy Manor as often as he'd like these days. But tomorrow, his wife, Trudy, will help him into his wheelchair, jostle him into their minivan and take him to meet someone he's been waiting a long time to see: the boy who left him a cripple.
More than nine months after he was stabbed in the back, Paterson expects to confront his alleged attacker in Family Court.
It will be the first time the 74-year-old retired machinist has ever seen the boy.
