Davies girls hang tough in loss to Central

January 28, 2014

LINCOLN — Davies took a ton of shots – 93 of them – on Tuesday night in its Division III crossover encounter against Central at the Patriots’ Alumni Hall.

Unfortunately for the Patriots, they struggled to find their shot from start to finish and hit just 12 of their attempts. But despite shooting a shade under 13 percent, as well as having a high number of turnovers and some struggles from the free-throw line, the Patriots still found themselves in a battle with the Knights.

Cumberland's second-half play keys win over Lincoln

January 27, 2014

LINCOLN — Cumberland High couldn’t continue to allow two of Lincoln High’s better players to feel comfortable on the offensive end.
That much was clear to Clippers assistant coach Collin Geiselman through the first half of Monday’s Division II-North clash at The Lions’ Den. One look at the stat sheet was enough to send a strong message to his troops: stop giving Lincoln’s Alec Cronan and Luke Kelly the freedom to either shoot from the outside or drive to the rim.

Co-op issues dominate PCOA meeting

January 27, 2014

PROVIDENCE — The issue of cooperative teams in the Rhode Island Interscholastic League has long been a source of concern. It’s also a topic that features far too much gray area, from schools finding creative ways and/or loopholes to save existing co-op programs, to establishing new ones under the guise of promoting interscholastic athletics.

Woonsocket track standout Fugere reflects on ride that resulted in scholarship to Northeastern

January 26, 2014

WOONSOCKET — A tremendous weight has been lifted from Connor Fugere’s broad and strapping shoulders.

The Woonsocket High senior is viewed as one of the best on the Rhode Island track and field circuit at heaving objects such as the shot put, 25-pound weight throw, and hammer a very long way. His appearance on the U.S. High School Weight Throw Performance List that was released last Wednesday backs up such a claim.

Soukhamthath loses MMA bantamweight duel to Moy

January 26, 2014

LINCOLN --- Andre Soukhamthath dominated the first half of his marquee bantamweight fight on Friday night.
His opponent, Kin “Kong” Moy, took charge of the second half.
And after three hard-fought, crowd-pleasing rounds, their fates rested in the hands of the judges, and in a matchup many people billed a “pick’ em” fight, all three chose Moy – and not the hometown favorite Soukhamthath – as the winner by 29-28 scores.

Boles, Crabbe get warm welcomes at PawSox Hot Stove event

January 24, 2014

PAWTUCKET – Bruce Crabbe’s official title with the Pawtucket Red Sox is coach. It sounds simple and straightforward, yet also vague in terms of what exactly his duties with the Triple-A ballclub will entail.

The 51-year-old Crabbe could oversee the infielders, an area that is his forte. Perhaps he might be responsible for relaying signals from the dugout to the outfielders, reminding them where to position themselves based on the hitter at the plate. Maybe Crabbe will offer his in-game observations as he sits next to new PawSox manager Kevin Boles.

Cumberland's Bauer hopes improvement in pool leads to success down the road

January 22, 2014

CUMBERLAND — Throughout the 2012-13 winter campaign, then-Cumberland High sophomore Jack Bauer improved at a rapid rate, causing older brother Andrew to continue to hassle him about registering for a USA Swimming-affiliated club program.
Andrew, a phenomenal distance freestyler in his own right, had done the same, and he reasoned that Jack would only get faster, given the more grueling workouts.

No longer bound by drama, Friars trending upward

January 20, 2014

PROVIDENCE – There are two schools of thought as to why Ted Bancroft and the Friars have gone on to string three Big East wins together following an 0-2 start.

Representing the Providence program at Monday’s college basketball brunch, held at Warwick's Radisson Hotel, Bancroft mentioned that a players-only meeting was staged in the aftermath of a 30-point blowout loss at Villanova earlier this month. At the time, the Friars appeared in a free fall after losing back-to-back overtime contests to UMass and Seton Hall before getting drubbed by the Wildcats.

Thumb surgery behind him, Alex Wilson sets sights on regaining role in Boston's bullpen

January 19, 2014

PAWTUCKET – Eventually, Alex Wilson arrived at the understanding that his ability to properly grip a baseball had been compromised.

What was originally deemed a sprained right thumb last July evolved into something far more problematic to the point where surgery went from a potential last resort to being inevitable. Wilson admitted that everything “was tried under the sun.” From having the thumb placed in a cast and later a splint, all of the precautions taken were done with an eye toward eventually returning to Boston’s bullpen.

At 5-4, the future appears to be now for young Burrillville/Ponaganset co-op girls' hockey team

January 18, 2014

BURRILLVILLE — All you need to do is take a quick look at its roster and you’d readily assume that the Burrillville/Ponaganset co-op squad is merely a season away from doing some real damage in the always-tough Emma Division.
There’s only one senior on the roster, and with most of the Broncos’ top players hailing from the nine-member junior class – as well as nine freshmen coming out for the team – not only does next year look to be promising for the squad, but so do the ones following that season.
