NORTH SMITHFIELD â€” Itâ€™s never an easy task to go from an 0-9 season to a playoff campaign in just two seasons, and second-year North Smithfield head coach Wes Pennington recognized that last week when he talked about his Northmenâ€™s past, present, and future.
The Northmen are enjoying one of their finest seasons and will be marching to the playoffs for the first time in the teamâ€™s 43-year history. Their 5-2 mark was their best record since 1997 and good enough for a third-place finish in the Division IV circuit and the No. 3 seed in next weekâ€™s postseason.
