Woonsocket edged by Tolman

February 9, 2012

PAWTUCKET – Tolman High’s Dion Rubio, a star football player who developed into a championship-calibre wrestler over the past four winters, enjoys the mat sport.

February 9, 2012

WOONSOCKET --- Before the season started, Steve Shea had his share of concerns regarding his Mount St. Charles team and its quest to three-peat as state champions.

LINCOLN — Little did Alexandra Fish know that when she accurately spelled the noun tableau, defined by Webster's Dictionary as “a striking, dramatic scene or picture,” she was living one herself.

Fish, who out-dueled fellow schoolmate and sixth-grader Alexandra Theroux, now will represent the district at the Rhode Island State Spelling Bee, to be held at this same site on Saturday, March 12 at 10 a.m.
