MSC's Hendricks sisters follow their hearts to URI

November 9, 2011

WOONSOCKET — During their truly exceptional high school careers on the Mount St. Charles Academy softball team, Emily and Olivia Hendricks have established themselves as the very best at their positions in the state.
Emily earned back-to-back All-State honors as a slick fielding shortstop who batted second and was an offensive threat from the left side of the plate, while Olivia posted a 36-15 mark as the Mounties’ ace pitcher, and offensively, was a bonafide run producer in the heart of the lineup.

KINGSTON — For the first time in its long history, Cumberland will play for a state championship.

Senior standouts Micaela Malboeuf (13 kills, 25 digs) and Michelle Malboeuf (11 kills, 20 digs) had big games for the Clippers, who defeated the Warriors by scored of 25-18, 25-19, 22-25, and 27-25 to advance.

November 9, 2011

WOONSOCKET — The past 24 hours have been bittersweet for Kelsey Lace.
On Tuesday night, Lace suffered the worst loss of her outstanding high school career when her then-unbeaten Mount St. Charles Academy squad was ousted in four games in the Division I semifinals by Ponaganset High.
It was a very bitter ending to a brilliant four-year run with the Mounties -- one that included a Division II state championship her sophomore year and what will soon be a repeat appearance on the All-State team.

Joe Paterno's tunnel vision caused a train wreck

November 9, 2011

“With the benefit of hindsight, I wish I could have done more.”
– Joe Paterno
***
Who would have thought it would end this way for the legendary Penn State coach of 46 years? Paterno, the man of high moral values, the guy who once vowed not to retire and “leave college football to the Barry Switzers and Jackie Sherrills” of his coaching fraternity, had failed the biggest morality test of his life.
