PROVIDENCE â It was right around Thanksgiving when Woonsocket High senior Kaylnn âK.K.â Pitts placed all her cards on the table.
âI want to win the [indoor] state championship in the high jump,â is what Pitts set out to obtain, the quote appearing in this very newspaper on Sunday, Nov. 18.
The teenagerâs 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 âsudden deathâ leap of five feet, four inches.
WOONSOCKET â Tommy Brien is livid. So are Dave Jarrett and the other volunteers in Woonsocket who run youth and recreational leagues and use the cityâs parks and fields.
Brien reported on Thursday night that on the agenda of Mondayâs City Council meeting is a proposal to establish fees for those who participate in the recreational programs that utilize the cityâs facilities -- charges that could severely cripple the budgets of some of the cityâs leagues.
