Things have a tendency to move pretty quickly around here – almost too quickly to catch up and fully appreciate what has transpired. On a day-to-day basis, we concern ourselves with concrete items such as wins or losses, how many points a team puts up, or whether the season culminates in championship glory.
Sometimes it’s easy to overlook the small, but significant individual moments. Rest assured that it’s not our intent to paint with broad strokes.
PROVIDENCE – For those who believe sequels never live up to the original, the Big East Conference has a message for you.
CUMBERLAND – For a sport like wrestling that prides itself on physicality and toughness, there sure were a lot of softer emotions like love, honor and respect on display Tuesday night at The Wellness Center when Cumberland High recorded the 500th dual-meet victory in program history, all under one man, head coach Steve Gordon.
BURRILLVILLE — North Smithfield High head coach Paul Nadeau loved it when his club was invited back to the third annual Burrillville Winter Classic.
After all, it finished fourth in the tournament a year ago, all the while having an opportunity to re-engage his athletes on the ice after their festive Christmas activities.
WOONSOCKET – For those who concerned about Mount St. Charles’ early-season struggles heading into their Holiday Face-Off Tournament, wonder no more.
The Mounties capped off three days of sterling play with a tourney-clinching 4-0 win over Connecticut’s Fairfield Prep at Adelard Arena on Sunday night. MSC jumped out to a 3-0 lead after one period and never looked back on its way to capturing the Face-Off for the first time since 2011.
WOONSOCKET – Mount St. Charles got off to a great start in its own Holiday Face-Off Tournament on Friday night, icing Bishop Guertin of Nashua, N.H., 8-3, at Adelard Arena.
Patrick Holmes, Justin D’Abrosca and Tyler Rudek all closed with two tallies, while Dan Allen and Jake Glod each chipped in a goal and two assists and Keith Phaneuf three feeds for the Mounties.
As is always the case following a Christmas Day full of gift-giving, unwrapping, eating and celebrating, area coaches and their teams will attempt to get back into the competitive mode this weekend at a variety of holiday tournaments.
WOONSOCKET — Earlier this month, Mount Saint Charles Academy’s volleyball coach, Josh D'Abate, and members of the girls’ volleyball team joined forces with local volunteers to participate in the Gingerbread Express at the William D'Abate Elementary School (K-5) in Providence,.
WOONSOCKET— For Mount St. Charles first-year head coach Henry Coleman, this was one heck of an early Christmas gift, one he won’t forget.
He knew his Tuesday night opponent, Masters Regional Academy, had a phenomenal hoopster in senior Pablo Perez, and told his squad beforehand what it had to do to keep his wizardry in check.
The Mounties did – and didn’t.
