KINGSTON — Senior captain Jack Bauer claimed the 200-yard individual medley (2:06.37) and 100-yard butterfly (56.41) and also swam on a pair of triumphant relays to propel the Cumberland High boys’ finmen to a 54-40 Division I triumph over South Kingstown at URI’s Tootell Natatorium on Monday afternoon.
Teammate Jay Rossi also earned “double-victor” status after landing the 100 freestyle (50.65) and 100 breaststroke (1:06.09), while Killian Canavan took the 50 freestyle (24.57) and the 100 backstroke (1:02.18).
Carolina (8-8-1) 27 vs
Arizona (11-6) 16
Next Weekâ€™s Matchups:
Dallas @ Green Bay
What to watch for:
Dallas will travel to Green Bay to face Aaron Rodgers and their dynamic offense. Green Bay has not lost at Lambeau Field yet this year. Dallas matches up well with Green Bay because they have a strong running game that can keep the clock running and keep the ball out of Green Bayâ€™s hands. The weather might get the best out of Dallas as it is likely to be extremely cold. Green Bayâ€™s offense will be looking to feast on a weak Dallas secondary.
Pick: Green Bay 31-24
Carolina @ Seattle
What to watch for:
BURRILLVILLE – Burrillville High chief Bill Robinson couldn’t have been in a better mood on New Year’s Night, and it wasn’t a surprise as to why.
Not only did his Broncos’ icemen salvage fifth place in their own Burrillville Winter Classic with a superb 7-0 non-league triumph over Lincoln on Thursday, but the tournament itself was a resounding success.
CUMBERLAND -- Steve Gordon doesn’t like to talk about coaching milestones, such as the 500th career dual-meet victory that came to his Cumberland High wrestling program on Tuesday night.

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.
