COVENTRY â€” After a successful weekend where they won four of their five dual meets at Mount Anthony Union (Vt.), the Coventry wrestling team returned to state competition hoping to prove a point against the most successful dual-meet team in the state over the last five seasons.
But Cumberland, which is looking for its third straight undefeated dual-meet campaign, had another idea. The Clippers breezed through the first matches and then rode the strength of their standout wrestlers â€“ Erik Travers and Tom Lacroix â€“ for a 46-24 Division I-North victory.
WOONSOCKET --- Woonsocket High did something on Tuesday that only one other team was able to do to Bay View Academy this season -- give the mighty Bengals a competitive battle.
Unfortunately for the Villa Novans, their strong effort couldnâ€™t not fetch them a win over the unbeaten Bengals, who bused home with their 14th Division I-North triumph, 54-40, on Woonsocketâ€™s â€śWomen In Sportsâ€ť night at Savaria Gymnasium.
LINCOLN â€“ There are wins and there are BIG wins.
For Davies Tech, this one has to be listed under the latter category.
With their playoff fate in Division III more than likely being determined in the final week of the league season, the Patriots scored a crucial victory over North Smithfield on Tuesday night by eking out a thrilling 37-36 decision on their home court. Sophomore Waleska Kelly fueled a total team effort by Davies, netting 12 points along with nine rebounds, seven steals and six blocks.
How important was this triumph for Davies?
