Kaylnn Pitts excels at Cumberland Invitational

April 30, 2011

CUMBERLAND – Although it often seems it, Kaylnn K.K. Pitts doesn’t always win every time that she competes in track & field.
There are also days like Saturday’s Cumberland Invitational where the versatile sophomore from Woonsocket High still manages to grab some headlines when she’s not the first one in the results.

Woonsocket outlasts Tolman, 8-7

April 30, 2011

WOONSOCKET -- Woonsocket High ran its record to 8-2 on Saturday with a hard-fought 8-7 victory over Tolman High in a battle between two Division II rivals.
The Villa Novans led 7-1 after five innings before Tolman climbed back into the contest with four runs in the top of the sixth inning. The Tigers tied the game at 7-7 with two more runs in the top of the seventh inning. But Woonsocket had last at-bats and it really mattered in this case.

Tough day for Lincoln: N.K. wins, 10-5

April 29, 2011

WICKFORD – This is a game Lincoln High would soon rather forget.
North Kingstown High was clearly the better squad Friday afternoon in a 10-5 win at Lischio Field. The game was hailed as a matchup of Division I contenders, as both squads entered play with identical 7-1 records, good enough to lead their respective divisions. Instead of a tightly-played contest filled with drama and suspense, the Skippers and Lions plodded along, combining for seven errors and 10 walks. In the end, North Kingstown was the squad that wound up making fewer mistakes, even though Lincoln belted three home runs.

Cumberland woman took long road to Cox race

April 28, 2011

CUMBERLAND – There will be more than 2,000 participants competing this weekend in the Cox Providence Rhode Races’ Half Marathon. Each one will have a goal; each one will have a reason for taking on such a challenging, endurance event.

Kalish's high school coach keeps tabs on PawSox OF

April 28, 2011

Buddy Hausmann knows Ryan Kalish, which is why he dubs the Red Sox outfield prospect, “my younger brother.”
“You want to make sure nothing is bothering him,” expressed Hausmann, the current head baseball coach and former assistant at Red Bank Catholic High School in New Jersey, where Kalish was a three-sport standout. “He won’t leave, whether it’s going to spring training or (or Athletes Performance in Arizona, a noted workout hangout for pro athletes) until he has dinner with my wife and I.”

East Providence beats Mounties in eight innings

April 27, 2011

EAST PROVIDENCE — This was a case of déjà vu that East Providence High liked and Mount St. Charles Academy didn’t.
Courtney DeCastro’s second walkoff hit of the season, a run-scoring single with two outs in the home half of the eighth inning, drove in younger sister Amy DeCastro with the run that helped the Townies grab a 2-1 victory over the Mounties in their Division I crossover affair at Pierce Field.

Central squeaks by Woonsocket, 4-2

April 27, 2011

PROVIDENCE — With the second half of the league season approaching quickly, Wednesday afternoon seemed as good a time as any for Woonsocket High head coach John Marsella to analyze his club’s play up to this point.
Keep in mind Marsella was asked to grade his Villa Novans following a 4-2 loss to division-leader Central High at Joe Williams Field. Though Woonsocket owns an impressive record – 7-2 Division II-North – there is still room for growth and improvement, at least according to the top guy.

Cranston West takes thriller from Lincoln

April 26, 2011

CRANSTON — The never-say-die attitude was there. So too were the late-game heroics that some have come to associate Lincoln High baseball with.
On a sun-splashed Tuesday afternoon, the end result went astray from the now one-beaten Lions. A valiant comeback bid was nullified thanks to Cranston West’s Alex Moretti’s two-out double with one on in the bottom of the seventh, lifting the Falcons to the 8-7 walk-off triumph. Moretti’s clutch knock touched down in the right-centerfield gap, chasing home catcher Jeff Diehl with the winning run.

Novan girls, Clipper boys remain unbeaten in track

April 26, 2011

CUMBERLAND — Ask any of the girls’ coaches about who would win Tuesday’s Northern Division showdown between host Cumberland High and unbeaten squads Woonsocket and Central Falls and the response was the same.
They simply didn’t have a clue.
“This is going to be a close meet,” said Woonsocket coach Dan Richard midway into the competition. “I thought before the meet, plus or minus five points between all three schools.”

Clippers get clutch hits in 4-1 win over Townies

April 25, 2011

CUMBERLAND — Stranding runners on base has been a sore subject with Cumberland High this month, but on Monday afternoon, the Clippers were able to deliver some timely hits in their Division I crossover battle with East Providence High at Tucker Field.
Rebecca Geddes, Samantha Bertherman, and Bridget Connors each drove in a run during a four-run uprising in the home half of the fourth inning, and that rally, parlayed with the dominant one-hit pitching of senior ace Bethany Paul, helped the hosts grab a 4-1 victory.
