WOONSOCKET â€” High school basketball coaches have a lot in common with teachers who send their students through rigorous courses like physics or chemistry. Hoop mentors must stand on the sidelines, trying to explain the finer points of their sport, while players try to absorb those lessons in the midst of competition.
East Providenceâ€™s Alex Butler and Woonsocketâ€™s Kyle Ivey-Jones did their best to educate their players on Wednesday night when the Townies visited the Villa Novans for a battle between two sub-.500 Division I teams.
NORTH SMITHFIELD â€” Kayla Kiernan has built up an impressive resume during her fantastic high school hockey career at North Smithfield High.
A state champion and the stateâ€™s goal-scoring leader as a freshman. A First-Team All-State pick as a junior, a Second-Team All-Stater as a sophomore. A three-time First-Team All-Division selection. And the list goes on.
And just when you thought she couldnâ€™t top what sheâ€™s done, Kiernan has an golden opportunity to tack on two more marvelous feats to her resume -- the stateâ€™s all-time goal-scoring leader and first-ever 100-goal scorer.
