Pitts, Crawley track down indoor state titles

February 16, 2013

PROVIDENCE — It was right around Thanksgiving when Woonsocket High senior Kaylnn “K.K.” Pitts placed all her cards on the table.
“I want to win the [indoor] state championship in the high jump,” is what Pitts set out to obtain, the quote appearing in this very newspaper on Sunday, Nov. 18.
The teenager’s day of reckoning came Saturday afternoon at the Providence Career & Technical Academy field house, site of the R.I. Indoor Track and Field Championships.
Pitts made good on her promise, capturing the high jump crown with a “sudden death” leap of five feet, four inches.

Brien reported on Thursday night that on the agenda of Monday’s City Council meeting is a proposal to establish fees for those who participate in the recreational programs that utilize the city’s facilities -- charges that could severely cripple the budgets of some of the city’s leagues.
