Relentless weather pesters Valley

February 1, 2011

WOONSOCKET — If you liked yesterday’s weather, you’re going to love what Mother Nature has in store for us today.

CHS grapplers still going strong

CUMBERLAND — Another snow day, another lost practice session for Cumberland High’s wrestling team.
“This makes me very uncomfortable,” Cumberland coach Steve Gordon was saying on Tuesday morning as another snowstorm hit the region. “I don’t have any control over the kids’ weights when we can’t practice. But my guys know what to do. They are pretty good about it. Some of them will go over to Northeast Elite (a wrestling school in Woonsocket) and get a workout in. We can’t practice at the school because if school is cancelled, it’s over. You can’t practice.”
