Unbeaten Northmen capture Div. III championship

February 24, 2013

PROVIDENCE — North Smithfield High head coach T.J. Ciolfi didn't arrive at school to take the team bus to Brown University's Pizzitola Center until approximately 1:40 p.m., Sunday.
In the interim, his Northmen hoopsters strolled around the gymnasium and locker room wondering where their chief could be. After all, they not only were about to face East Greenwich for the R.I. Division III Tournament championship, but also try to register the school's first-ever undefeated season.
Ciolfi admitted later it was all part of the plan.

Crawley kept up his end of the bargain when the swift 12th grader captured the 3,000-meter run at the R.I. Indoor Track & Field Championships two weekends ago.

PROVIDENCE – Immediately after Lincoln High senior quad-captain Nik Zicuis had posted a 10-5 triumph over La Salle Academy senior John Georges in the 220-pound weight class, he hustled to the opposing coaches' corner and accepted congratulatory handshakes.
He then sprinted to the opposite side and leaped into head coach Mike Tuorto's arms; while hugging him and grinning at able assistant Anthony Turchetta, Zicuis threw his fist into the air, index finger pointing skyward.
