PAWTUCKET â€” Mount St. Charles junior Mike Doody had just suffered a lopsided 6-1, 6-1 loss to Classical High sophomore Austen Clark at the top singles spot, but he didn't dwell on it.
Seconds after his individual match had ended, he grabbed his gear from one section of Slater Park's Mike Kenny Courts at mid-afternoon Saturday and hustled to the other to catch a glimpse of his teammates' tilts.
â€śThis is hard,â€ť he sighed while watching the Mount's second and third doubles' pairs. â€śWhen I'm playing, I can control what I'm doing. Watching them, I feel helpless. I can't do anything about it.â€ť
PAWTUCKET â€” The last time North Smithfield had faced Narragansett, way back on cold and windy April 14, the Northmen snatched all three doubles matches before the four singles players suffered defeats.
The final: Narragansett, 4-3.
Based on that information, North Smithfield head coach Matt Pavao had hoped one or two of his singles representatives could eke out a triumph when the two forces met again for the R.I. Division III Team Tournament championship.
