R.I. football officials unsure of next step after contract is awarded to Mass.

April 10, 2013

Wednesday’s announcement from the Rhode Island Principals’ Committee on Athletics regarding the awarding of a two-year football officials’ contract to a group from Massachusetts does not automatically spell the end of Rhode Island-based officials from overseeing games statewide.
What remains to be seen is just how many Rhode Island officials are willing to put hurt feelings aside and “break ranks,” those words coming from Bruce Guindon, a Pawtucket native and registered Interscholastic League official.

Ring Ceremony, Big Papi part of McCoy Stadium home opener

April 10, 2013

PAWTUCKET — A tip for those with plans to turn out at McCoy Stadium for the Pawtucket Red Sox’ home opener on Thursday night: Make every effort to get comfortably seated by around 6:15.
An elaborate pre-game ceremony laced with pageantry will directly lead into the 7:05 first pitch between Pawtucket and Rochester. The festivities commence with a tribute to neighboring police and fire units. The jubilant spirit inside the ballpark’s walls will undoubtedly remain at a fever pitch when the 2012 Governors’ Cup champion PawSox are recognized as part of a special ring ceremony.

April 10, 2013

LINCOLN — Regarding the defending state championship unit he oversees, Lincoln High head coach Dick Ryan has very few reasons to feel nervous.
Even on a day that saw senior pitching standout Lindsay Mayer demonstrate that she is human after all, the Lions were still able to outclass the opposition in every conceivable sense. Lincoln was supplied by plenty of offensive fireworks and a stout defense that was on full display during the fifth inning of Wednesday’s game when centerfielder Adriana Toro unleashed a cannon of a throw to nail a Smithfield baserunner at third base.

Tolman comes out swinging, decks Woonsocket, 8-0

April 10, 2013

WOONSOCKET — On Monday afternoon at Slater Park, Tolman High mustered only one hit in a 3-0, extra-inning loss to defending Rhode Island Division I champion Lincoln.
Naturally, that was a point of contention for head coach Craig Giarrusso, who in practice has been working with his girls to produce more at the plate.
It showed, and then some, in a Division I showdown with Woonsocket on Wednesday afternoon. The Tigers bashed 14 hits, 11 of them in the final three frames, to post an easier-than-anticipated 8-0 victory at Cold Spring Park’s Baldelli Field.
