All-Star break welcome respite for PawSox players

July 10, 2011

PAWTUCKET – The PawSox players and staff couldn’t vacate the McCoy Stadium grounds fast enough Sunday evening.
After holding on for a 4-3 win against Buffalo, the PawSox put the unofficial first half (91 of 143 games) behind them and will use the next three days to regroup mentally. Baseball, a staple for all involved parties since the start of spring training in mid-February, plans take a back seat to vacation getaways and family reunions.

Lavarnway leads PawSox to victory

July 10, 2011

PAWTUCKET – The type of season Ryan Lavarnway is enjoying tends to open the door to possibilities down the road, one being a September call-up.
Right now Lavarnway prefers to let his bat do the talking. The power-hitting catching prospect went 3-for-4 with two home runs Sunday as the Pawtucket Red Sox ended the unofficial first half of the season with a 4-3 win against Buffalo.

July 10, 2011

BURRILLVILLE - Rick Finlayson, for 13 years the golf professional and general manager of the Country View Golf Club in Burrillville, offers a simple reason why throngs of players gravitate to his course.
“It’s affordable, we have a friendly staff and it’s a challenge for all types of players - beginners, intermediate and advanced players,” he said.
Country View G.C., located on 49 Club Lane off Route 7, about a 25-minute drive from Providence, is a moderately-challenging Par 70 course that measures 6,067 yards from the back tees and 5,060 yards from the ladies’ tees.

Kahn rules Amica Ironman Triathlon

July 10, 2011

PROVIDENCE – A couple of family members, a cousin and even his coach graduated or are still attending Brown University.
Despite all those connections, David Kahn had never been to Providence until this weekend.
But the 27-year-old Long Island triathlete, a recent dental school graduate from the University of Pennsylvania, sure made his first visit to the capital city worthwhile on Sunday with a wire-to-wire victory at the fourth annual Amica Ironman 70.3 triathlon. Kahn finished the race – a 1.2-mile swim, a 56-mile bike and 13.1-mile run – with a time of 4 hours, 52 seconds.
