BURRILLVILLE â Tom Kenwood gave a promise to his Cumberland High squad before competing at the annual Bronco Invitational. If four of his runners could crack 17 minutes on the eventâs five-kilometer course at Burrillville Middle School, he would shave off his beard.
Kenwood didnât have to get out his razor after Thursdayâs meet, but he almost did.
When Bruce and Sheri Foster said âI doâ eight years ago, they probably never thought they would one day decide to do something as wild and crazy as the competition they entered two weekends ago.
The Lincoln couple was one of 47 that participated in the Sunday River Ski Resortâs 12th annual North American Wife Carrying Championships in Newry, Maine. They toured the challenging 283-yard obstacle course in a 1:27.37 time that placed them 27th and just eight seconds shy of a top-20 finish.
PAWTUCKET â As St. Raphael Academy discovered on Thursday night, thereâs a reason why Burrillville has surrendered a division-low seven goals this season.
Defense is the name of the Broncosâ game, which was made plenty clear as the Saints were grounded, 4-0, at the McKinnon-Alves Complex. The shutout is No. 11 for Burrillville, which hasnât allowed a goal in seven straight games dating back to Sept. 23.
