Champions made 2010 a banner year

December 31, 2010

From high school to Little League, 2010 was a truly glorious one for the Blackstone Valley, as several teams and indviduals captured state championships in their respective sports. Here’s a quick rundown of the highlights of this past year:
The winter season was a magicial one for the region, as five of its high school teams captured state championships.
The Mount St. Charles Academy boys’ and girls’ hockey teams pulled off a nifty double by winning their respective state championships. It’s the first time since 2003 that the Mounties’ squads both captures titles in the same season.

These people made 2010 memorable

December 30, 2010

The best part of my job is meeting people connected with various sports teams or organizations throughout the Blackstone Valley. When all is said and done, it is the people and the things they teach us that remain long after the final scores have faded away.
Here are some of the people I remember from my life during the year 2010.

Look out for these track stars in 2011!

December 30, 2010

Just like the other winter sports we cover, the indoor track season will enter a new year on Saturday.
Some goals that were set back in early November remain the same, but with 2011 now beginning there’s also those New Year’s resolutions.
Or, shall we say, a new set of goals – perhaps ones that become more realistic after the first two months of the season.
Will those goals (new and old) be accomplished? Time will only tell.
Here’s a glimpse at what is potentially in store from our top local track & field athletes in the coming months.

No shortage of memories in 2010

December 26, 2010

Sometimes things move pretty quickly around here – almost too quickly to catch up and fully appreciate what has transpired.
One day we’re ushering in the winter sports season while the high school Super Bowls have yet to be contested. The non-stop nature extends to all seasons and sports, and we here at Blackstone Valley Sports have no choice but to hop aboard the next train or run the risk of being left behind.
