Mount girls defeat North Smithfield/Burrillville co-op squad again in Div. III lacrosse quarterfinals, 16-10

May 22, 2014

WOONSOCKET — On Monday afternoon, Mount St. Charles cruised to an easy 20-7 triumph over North Smithfield/Burrillville Co-op in both squads’ penultimate Division III contest.
It could have been the Mounties, who like the Northerners were missing a few players for a variety of reasons in that clash, were expecting the same kind of result when the rivals met again in a state D-III Tournament quarterfinal on Thursday.
Nothing could’ve been further from the truth. North Smithfield/Burrillville catapulted to leads of 4-1 and 6-3 over the initial 9:09 and went into the break tied at 7-all.

PawSox pitching coach believes young starting pitchers will 'start in the big leagues' someday

May 20, 2014

PAWTUCKET — Rich Sauveur firmly believes that all five current members of the PawSox’ starting rotation possess the ability to hold down jobs at pro baseball’s highest level.

“Whether it’s with Boston or with somebody else, they’re going to start in the big leagues. I really feel that,” said Pawtucket’s pitching coach with a straight face. “I couldn’t tell you when or with who, but they will.”

PawSox fail to produce clutch hit in loss to 'Riders

May 20, 2014

PAWTUCKET — Springtime may have finally sprung in southern New England, but Pawtucket’s bats remain in a deep slumber.
The offensive doldrums that have plagued the locals for much of the season perhaps simmered to a boil during the eighth inning of Tuesday’s disheartening 3-0 loss to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, winners of three games in this four-game set. With two runners on base and the potential tying run at the plate, the PawSox turned to their Nos. 4 and 5 hitters in the hope seeing a ball disappear over the McCoy Stadium fence.

Nelson's clutch eighth-inning hit helps Cumberland walk off with softball victory over rival Lincoln

May 20, 2014

CUMBERLAND — Cumberland and Lincoln have hooked up in some interesting late-season matchups over the years, and on Tuesday afternoon, they continued this tradition with an extra-inning barnburner at Tucker Field.
After watching Lincoln score an unearned run in the top of the eighth inning, Cumberland came back to snag a dramatic 8-7 victory in its half of the frame on a clutch two-out, two-run single to right field by ace pitcher Juliet Nelson.

May 20, 2014

WOONSOCKET --- After enduring its worst week of the spring and slipping out of first place in the Division III-North standings, Mount St. Charles was determined to put forth a superb effort in Monday’s showdown with the North Smithfield/Burrillville co-op team.
And thanks to big offensive afternoons from Jordan McComb and Shaina Bauersachs and a stellar 16-save performance from goalie Grace McWilliams, the Mounties were able to do just that in rolling to a 20-7 victory over their neighboring rivals.

Mount's Castro signs Softball Letter of Intent to URI

May 17, 2014

WOONSOCKET — As she watched one classmate after another gleefully boast about their college plans, Briana Castro kept wondering when exactly the ship she desired was going to drop anchor.

A senior softball and hockey standout at Mount St. Charles, Castro would seek out her physics teacher, Kristen Couture, for counsel and reassurance that everything would work out. She would also keep repeating in her mind a saying from her parents, Fabio and Wendy: “If it’s meant to be, then clearly it’s meant to be.”

May 16, 2014

CUMBERLAND --- For the past few years, the sand volleyball courts in the back of Fore Court Racquet & Fitness Club on Cray Street had been vacant and pretty much forgotten.

But when a club member approached Dave Morin, the president and general manager of Fore Court, about the possibility of transforming the big outdoor space into a training center for obstacle racing, the wheels went into motion.

And they’re doing so with the repeat promise of offering the lowest premier fees in southeastern New England.
