Northmen swinging for D-III tennis title

May 4, 2013

NORTH SMITHFIELD – Division III championship or bust.

That’s the goal for this spring’s North Smithfield tennis team. Return to the finals on May 25 at Slater Park – and win. It’s as simple as that.

Going undefeated during the regular season would be nice, and so would be any other regular-season accolades awarded to any of the Northmen, but make no mistake about it – whether this season is deemed a successful one or not will be determined in the title match at the end of the month.

Webster shuts down Bulls, picks up first PawSox victory

May 3, 2013

PAWTUCKET — Allen Webster brought out his best to nab his first Triple-A victory on a cold Friday night.
The 23-year-old prospect delivered six innings of two-hit ball, striking out nine batters and walking none, to help the Pawtucket Red Sox produce a 4-1 victory over the Durham Bulls at McCoy Stadium.
Aside from a shaky third inning that saw Webster hit the first batter he faced and the Bulls collect both their hits and score their run, Webster was simply on top of his game.
