Mount's Sayles daughter of famous singer

February 22, 2011

PROVIDENCE – Whenever Ali Sayles competes for the Mount St. Charles Academy track & field team, there's one voice she can distinctly hear from the crowd.

The face behind the voice and one of Sayles' biggest supporters this winter season and throughout her track career belongs to her mom, Ruth Pointer. That's right, the same Ruth Pointer who, along with her sisters, turned those 80s lyrics into the hit song, “I'm So Excited,” as a member of the legendary Pointer Sisters.
