WARWICK â€” On a day that saw this country honor the memory and contributions of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and watch as President Obama mapped out his second-term desires, it seemed appropriate to talk leadership.

BURRILLVILLE â€” Looking rather glum, Steve Daigle stood outside Burrillville Highâ€™s locker room at Levy Rink on Monday afternoon and sighed at what had just transpired.
â€śIt was a disaster,â€ť he said after his Broncos had suffered a humiliating 6-0 Division I loss to powerhouse Hendricken. â€śThe kids just didnâ€™t come ready to play for some unknown reason. They just didnâ€™t have it. They didnâ€™t come out of the gate with any kind of energy, which is something you definitely need against the privates.
PAWTUCKET â€” Should we stay or should we go? That was the question facing Lincoln head coach Jim Riel during the offseason when the RIIL was getting ready to realign its teams for the 2012-13 campaign.
Stay in the Division I-Eccleston and the Lions would have been competitive night in and night out against the other five public schools in the division. Drop down to Division II and also face a drop in competition, but the Lions would have been one of the clear favorites in the running for a lower state championship.
