WOONSOCKET â If you liked yesterdayâs weather, youâre going to love what Mother Nature has in store for us today.
The latest in a series of unusually fierce winter storms turns out to be a double-dipper. After dumping four to seven inches of snow across the Blackstone Valley Tuesday, a second wave â a hard-to-predict combo of snow, sleet and rain â is expected to whack the region by nightfall.
CUMBERLAND â Another snow day, another lost practice session for Cumberland Highâs wrestling team.
âThis makes me very uncomfortable,â Cumberland coach Steve Gordon was saying on Tuesday morning as another snowstorm hit the region. âI donât have any control over the kidsâ weights when we canât 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 canât practice at the school because if school is cancelled, itâs over. You canât practice.â
CUMBERLAND â There may be a âDâ at the end of Cumberland, but when it comes to the high schoolâs hockey team, the âDâ has been front and center for the past several seasons.
After 11 games, the Clippers have surrendered a division-low 17 goals, and news of them being atop this department shouldnât be anything new to those who follow the Division II circuit.
