CUMBERLAND â€” Cumberlandâ€™s inability to get the big hit on Tuesday afternoon cost the Clippers an opportunity to pick up a big win.
The Clippers stranded 10 runners on base â€“ five of them in scoring position â€“ and saw La Salle use a three-run uprising in the top of the third inning and some strong pitching from Caleb Gardner to produce a 4-1 victory at Tucker Field.
The Rams, who are 10-1 in Division I-North play (and in second place behind unbeaten Bishop Hendricken) and have now won eight in a row, didnâ€™t need a big hit to take their 3-0 lead off Cumberland starter Rob Reedy.
CUMBERLAND â€” A year ago at these Northern Division Championships, then-Central Falls High junior Tiffany Jenkins finished third overall in the high jump â€“ courtesy of a leap of five feet, one inch â€“ but truly wanted to improve that placement this time around.
Now a senior captain, she accomplished the same 5-1 on Tuesday afternoon, but found herself in a different situation. With the height, she earned the title, so is looking forward to bigger and better things with the premier meets just around the corner.
WOONSOCKET â€“ A police officer was bitten by a pit bull early Tuesday while investigating a report of a domestic assault at 252 Burnside Ave., police said.
Patrolman Patrick Greeno, 24, was struggling with a woman in the kitchen when one of her daughters opened a bedroom door, allowing two pit bulls to get out.
As he and another patrolman were wrestling 44-year-old Katie Acevedo into a pair of handcuffs, Greeno reported, one of the dogs bit him on the right forearm, breaking the skin and opening a laceration about a half-inch long.
PROVIDENCE â€“ The Senate Finance Committee unanimously approved Sen. Marc Coteâ€™s bill to approve a $2.5 million supplemental property tax levy in Woonsocket on Tuesday.
The measure will now go to the full Senate, but Cote said if it is approved there, it will be held until other parts of the plan to reduce Woonsocketâ€™s deficit plan are concluded. These include negotiations that Mayor Leo Fontaine and Budget Commission Chairman William Sequino are currently conducting with city employees and retirees to cut payroll and pension costs.

CUMBERLAND â€” Mount St. Charles junior Anthony Pasquarelli admitted he felt â€śpretty goodâ€ť while prepping for the high jump at these Northern Division Championships, held at Tucker Field on Monday afternoon.
But even he didnâ€™t anticipate walking away from the meet with his first-ever divisional crown, thanks to a leap of six feet, two inches.
He had outstanding reason: After all, he had to battle Central Falls High junior phenom Erik Mateo, who back in February became that eventâ€™s champion at the state indoor meet at the Providence Career & Technical Academyâ€™s field house.

All of the tenants are reportedly staying with family members, he said.
