Richard making a difference at Woonsocket High

February 26, 2011

WOONOCKET — Three years ago, George Briggs retired from a more than three-decade career as a educator in the Woonsocket school system.
Briggs was also contemplating doing the same from his post as the longtime (and successful) track and cross-country coach at the high school level.

Sprained ankle halts three-peat effort by Shai Lariviere

PROVIDENCE — In Saturday’s semifinal round of the R.I. state championship meet, Cumberland High won four of five bouts to take some of the sting out of its slow start to the tourney on Friday evening.
Cumberland suffered a huge loss on Friday night when two-time state champion Shai Lariviere defaulted in his second match, giving in to a sprained ankle suffered on Monday at practice.
“I tried to wrestle but I couldn’t do it,” Lariviere said later.

PROVIDENCE — Defending champion Cumberland capped an uneven and perhaps snake-bitten performance at this year’s state championship meet by going 0-for-4 in Saturday night’s individual finals.
Two-time defending champion Shoneil Lariviere was upset in the 125-pound finals by East Providence’s Joao Vicente, who pulled off a stunning 11-5 win over an opponent who had pinned him last month during the dual-meet season.
