It's on! Mount, Hendricken duel for state title again

March 8, 2012

WOONSOCKET --- This year has been a tale of two seasons for Mount St. Charles.
The first season was not a very good one by the program’s standards. Back-to-back losses to La Salle in early December and a 3-4 record in January did not sit well with the team’s loyal fan base, even though Mount was entering the season with one of its youngest teams in several seasons.

March 8, 2012

WOONSOCKET — George Coderre sounded more like a proud father rather than a head coach upon being informed that Woonsocket High senior Kailey Fugere had been selected by Gatorade as the 2011-12 R.I. Girls Basketball Player of the Year.

March 8, 2012

When Courtney Kent took to the starting blocks for the R.I. Interscholastic Girls Swimming Championships at the University of Rhode Island’s Tootell Natatorium back on Feb. 25, she desperately wanted to defend her titles in the 200- and 500-yard freestyles.
Naturally, it had something to do with her desire to achieve personal-best times – not to mention proving to herself she still was the Ocean State's fastest – but much more so to show her father, Michael, how much she had improved over the years.
