WOONSOCKET — Mount St. Charles will conduct a town-hall forum that centers on sportsmanship, leadership and honorable competition in youth sports on Monday, November 3. The event, which is called “The Way You Play Matters,” runs from 7-8:15 p.m. and take place inside school’s gymnasium, located on 800 Logee Street.
PAWTUCKET -- The final shot signified the astounding turnaround the Lincoln High girls' tennis program has made in the span of just 12 months.
On match point, senior co-captain Tallia Akay knocked a backhand off the net cord, and it barely trickled over. When the ball bounced softly on the side of South Kingstown senior Annie Madden, her Lions' teammates scrambled through the gate on the wooded side of Slater Park's Mike Kenny Courts to rush Akay.
EXETER – Exeter/West Greenwich football coach Mike Watters has developed a good perspective on two of the best teams in Division IV this season – unbeaten Burrillville and once-beaten Scituate. His rebuilding Scarlet Knights have lost to both Super Bowl contenders by rebounding margins.
NORTH PROVIDENCE – North Smithfield High veteran head coach Wes Pennington expected a certain determination from his squad as it took on always-gutsy North Providence on Friday night, but what he witnessed soared past his wildest dreams.
PAWTUCKET – You can’t rush perfection – and never was that more true than on Saturday at the Slater Park Mike Kenny Courts, where North Smithfield waited through a three-hour rain delay before they got the chance to cap off a 14-0 dream season.
Once the droplets were dry and the games began, however, the Lady Northmen’s peerless talent shone through, and the team captured their first state D-III championship since 2010 with a 4-0 victory over Chariho.
WOONSOCKET – It was easy to tell there was a lot at stake when Woonsocket High “entertained” Davies Tech in a battle featuring Division III’s top two squads, considering all the jersey-tugging, sliding tackles, hard liners off defenders’ mid-sections and coaches hollering instructions throughout.
That explained the physicality and aggressiveness the two opponents displayed in their efforts to gain supremacy.
BURRILLVILLE -- Head coach Amy Cardone provided an elementary strategy before her Burrillville High troops hosted Division II-North leader Scituate in a monumental league clash on Tuesday afternoon.
PAWTUCKET – Six years, and just shy of three thousand miles separated Paula Cadavid from her sport.
To be reunited, it took a passion that wouldn’t fade and the devotion of a handful of sympathetic coaches. Her story is a reminder that sometimes, the well-worn phrase “love of the game” actually means what it says.
NORTH SMITHFIELD – The wearing of a “Hello my name is” name tag won’t be needed when Michaela Brodeur officially enrolls at the University of Rhode Island in the Fall of 2015.
WOONSOCKET -- As always after a Woonsocket High game, cheerleaders and volunteer moms set up a buffet table complete with pasta, pizza and other goodies for their players and coaches to gobble.
When the Villa Novans took a considerable amount of time – perhaps 20 minutes – to finally file out of the Barry Field locker rooms and offices, one questioned, “Where are they? The food’s getting cold.”
An instant later, a trainer walked out of the closed door and provided the answer: “They’re still being yelled at.”
