April 18, 2012

WOONSOCKET – The City Council took a tentative first step this week toward trading in a hodgepodge of health care products the city offers various workers for a unified plan that will cover all classes of employees, including teachers, police, firefighters and municipal workers.

WOONSOCKET — Late last week, St. Raphael Academy head coach Tom “Saar” Sorrentine explained to his senior ace, Nick Cesino, that he would draw the start when the Saints took on host Mount St. Charles on Wednesday morning.

Mount suffers ugly loss, falls to Smithfield, 15-10

April 17, 2012

The Mounties turned in a lackluster performance against their neighboring foes and dearly paid for it in a game that took nearly three hours to complete. The Sentinels banged out 14 hits and took advantage of five Mount errors and a number of wild pitches and passed balls en route to a 15-10 victory.
