Iannetta can't wait to play for Angels

December 13, 2011

Chris Iannetta’s “Get Out of Jail Free” card arrived two weeks ago when the St. Raphael Academy alumnus was acquired by the Los Angeles Angels to be their everyday catcher.
Relocating from the Rocky Mountains that adorn Colorado to sun-splashed Southern California has already reaped one major benefit for the 28-year-old. Keep in mind that Iannetta has yet to suit up for his new manager, but that didn’t stop Mike Scioscia from lavishing praise upon his new catcher during last week’s winter meetings.

December 12, 2011

WOONSOCKET — For Division I openers, Woonsocket High coach George Coderre wasn’t exactly doing cartwheels when he saw Smithfield on the schedule. Historically, the Sentinels have always given the Villa Novans a battle whenever the two squads have faced one another on the court.
It was no different on Monday night.
Despite never trailing in its I-North contest and building a lead to as much as 14 points, Woonsocket was never in the comfort zone against the pesky Sentinels until the closing minutes of an eventual 53-41 victory at Savaria Gymnasium.
