Mount St. Charles Baseball | MIRACLE FINISH: Cardiac Mounties deliver walk-off victory over Tolman in Game 1 of Division II finals

June 16, 2015

PAWTUCKET – For the better part of seven innings, Tolman High seemed destined to clinch the opener of its R.I. Division II Tournament best-of-three championship series against Mount St. Charles.

Senior righty Alex Lopez pitched himself out of trouble time after time, with help, of course, from his defense, especially freshman second baseman Kyle Depatie, who managed seven assists and a putout.

Chan receives Pell Award for contributions to region's arts scene

June 15, 2015

PROVIDENCE – Anyone who has stopped in at Chan’s Fine Oriental Dining, at 267 Main St., Woonsocket, can tell you how much its owner, John Chan, loves jazz and blues music.

Photographs and paintings of the greats of jazz and blues cover the walls of the restaurant, and also of the adjoining dinner theater that has helped build Chan’s reputation as an advocate and promoter of the music genres.

His reputation in that role was recognized in a very special way Monday night as Chan received the 2015 Pell Award for Excellence in the Arts at Trinity Repertory Co. in Providence.

Mount St. Charles Baseball | READY TO TAKE AIM: Mounties to meet Tolman with Div. II title on the line

June 15, 2015

PAWTUCKET – Virtually every time Tolman High meets Mount St. Charles on the diamond, Tigers' mentor Theo Murray mentions his personal history with the Woonsocket Catholic school.

It seems back in 1992, when Murray represented Shea as a standout senior third/first baseman, his Raiders held a precarious lead over the Mounties in the R.I. Division II Tournament losers' bracket final. In the end, however, MSC prevailed with a late rally, 7-6, eliminating Shea from a berth opposite Westerly, the eventual state champion.

Cumberland Baseball | Clippers ready for challenge against undefeated Hendricken in Div. I finals

June 15, 2015

CUMBERLAND – Because they competed in different leagues within Division I, Cumberland High didn't face fellow state finalist Hendricken during the regular season, but that doesn't mean Clippers' first-year skipper Andy Tuetken hasn't done his homework.

He knows full well what his club is up against when the two meet in the opener of the best-of-three D-I championship set, slated for today at 6 p.m. inside McCoy Stadium.

WEB EXTRA: Showdown over city budget tonight

June 15, 2015

WOONSOCKET – Mayor Lisa Baldelli-Hunt and the City Council square off in Harris Hall tonight as the mayor vetoed the panel’s cuts in health care and a contingency account that allowed the council to deliver an FY 2016 spending plan of $134.9 million, more than $800,000 less than Baldelli-Hunt's.

The question is, will the council, after unanimously approving the cuts two weeks ago, override the mayor’s veto?

Five of its seven members must reaffirm their original votes to do so.

WEST WARWICK  –  With a trip to the R.I. Division I Tournament championship set on the line, Cumberland High first-year skipper Andy Tuetken delivered to his team one final bit of advice on Sunday.

June 14, 2015


PROVIDENCE – You create your own luck, and that’s exactly what the North Smithfield softball team tried to do Sunday afternoon with a spot in the Division II finals on the line.

North Providence responded in calm and cool nature, making defensive plays that took the air out of the Northmen’s attack. It was a scene that repeated several times and represented a major reason why the Cougars emerged from the losers’ bracket with a 2-1 victory.

North Smithfield-Davies Tech Softball | Pasquariello, Northmen bounce Patriots from Div. II Playoffs

June 13, 2015

PROVIDENCE — Jen Pasquariello can almost be described as North Smithfield head coach Paul Mercier’s pet project.

“She’s not a starter. She’s somebody who needed to be pushed and kind of wake up a little bit,” said Mercier. “You’ve got to show the coaching staff during practices that you want to be out there.”

It reached the point where Mercier sat down with Pasquariello as the regular season drew to a close. Since the coach-to-player moment, the naturally skilled Pasquariello has done everything within her power to reward Mercier’s faith in her.
