WOONSOCKET -- Triathlon athlete Skylar Plante of Woonsocket has been training hard over the past week, working out under the watchful eye of her doting grandparents who moved the furniture around in their parlor so Plante could practice her sprinting in between episodes of SpongeBob SquarePants.

Now that the school boasts its sparkling two-month-old, six-court tennis complex across Logee Street, the athletic director has had an extra hop in his step this fall in taking the short walk across Logee Street to work with the girls’ squad.
