Cumberland swimmers sweep Mounties

February 8, 2011

WOONSOCKET – In her freshman year of high school swimming last winter for Cumberland High, all Courtney Kent did was win a state title. Kent shocked the field by capturing the 500-yard freestyle with an impressive time of 5 minutes, 6.45 seconds at the Tootel Aquatic Center at URI.
What does the tenth-grader expect to do for the encore?
How about cop two individual titles at the Feb. 19 state championship and possibly break a state record by a certain U.S. Olympian, who makes Rhode Island her home.

MSC girls hoop teams defeats Tolman

February 7, 2011

WOONSOCKET — When the first half finished, Tammy Drape crouched down and just stared at the court for about 30 seconds. If the court was made of dirt, the Tolman High coach would have probably dug a hole and buried herself inside.
It was that frustrating.
The Tigers picked the wrong time to have one of their worst offensive showings of the season. Facing first-place Mount St. Charles Academy on Monday night, Tolman went into a massive scoring drought in the initial half and could never quite recover as the Mounties rolled to a 43-28 rout in their Division II-North contest.
