S.K. takes Div. I volleyball showdown with Mount

May 14, 2013

WOONSOCKET — Mount St. Charles head coach Josh D’Abate expected his crew to come out firing on all cylinders against visiting South Kingstown on Tuesday night.
After all, the Rebels had entered the important clash at 9-1, their lone loss occurring against Division I-South leader Coventry in only the third tilt of the season. He anticipated his Mounties, leading the North section, to want to prove its wherewithal against one of Rhode Island’s best.

Lincoln takes softball showdown from N.K.

May 13, 2013

NORTH KINGSTOWN — The streak is still alive.
After playing five drama-free contests that were decided by nine or more runs, unbeaten Lincoln encountered its toughest test in nearly a month when the Lions trekked down to Ryan Park for a Monday night showdown with second-place North Kingstown.
And while the Lions were able to come away with a 3-2 win, it was far from easy, and it took eight innings and some daring baserunning from Casie Beauchemin to produce the game-winning run.

Locals playing key roles on diamond for La Salle Academy

May 12, 2013

PROVIDENCE – There’s a hearty dose of local talent on this year’s baseball team at La Salle Academy. More precisely, there are five players whose contributions to date represent a key reason why head coach Geoff Marcone’s ball club is positioned near the top of Division I-North.

What makes this particular quintet so distinctive is that each of them brings something different to the field. In Cumberland’s Caleb Gardner and North Smithfield’s C.J. Dandeneau, the Rams are buoyed by a rock-solid 1-2 punch at the front-end of the rotation.

Woonsocket boxer Gardner hopes to keep good times rolling

May 11, 2013

WOONSOCKET — Nine times out of 10, Joe Gardner’s super middleweight fight with Richard Gingras would be worthy of a main event at the Twin River Event Center.
But when one of the fights on the card is a world title fight and the other bout pits one of Classic Entertainment & Sports, Inc.’s most decorated fighters in a must-see showdown, it’s understandable why the Woonsocket fighter will merely be topping an action-packed undercard.

Sea Dog Bard is learning new tricks

May 10, 2013

NEW BRITAIN, Conn. – The creed that Daniel Bard swears by nowadays is simple enough.

Jams on the mound are going to arise – but how he reacts and responds to those situations is what matters most. Even the most successful professional pitcher can never be flawless, and therefore he must have an unflappable disposition when confronted with an inevitable first-and-second, no-out jam.

Clippers crash against Hendricken, 6-1

May 10, 2013

CUMBERLAND - It was perfectly understandable why Cumberland High skipper Paul Murphy seemed so dejected on Friday afternoon.

His ace, senior southpaw Dylan Boisclair, pitched respectably, but didn’t have the usual mustard on his fastball or relish on the curve. The infield made some plays, but also erred once, and the Clippers as a whole allowed Hendricken to run the bases with impunity.

All of that resulted in the Hawks remaining unbeaten with a 6-1 thumping of the Clippers at Tucker Field, in Division I-North play.

McGair: Talking heads shouldn’t judge what’s behind closed doors

May 8, 2013

A little of this, a little of that …

There are some sports writers and columnists who believe that one of the job’s requisites is to put themselves in the shoes of a professional athlete. It’s as if the power of the pen and computer grants these gatekeepers of the locker room the ability to read millionaire’s minds or to step inside their bodies.
And that’s when the real trouble ensues.

Game of missed opportunities for Cumberland baseball team

May 7, 2013

CUMBERLAND — Cumberland’s inability to get the big hit on Tuesday afternoon cost the Clippers an opportunity to pick up a big win.
The Clippers stranded 10 runners on base – five of them in scoring position – and saw La Salle use a three-run uprising in the top of the third inning and some strong pitching from Caleb Gardner to produce a 4-1 victory at Tucker Field.
The Rams, who are 10-1 in Division I-North play (and in second place behind unbeaten Bishop Hendricken) and have now won eight in a row, didn’t need a big hit to take their 3-0 lead off Cumberland starter Rob Reedy.

Smithfield bests Cumberland for Northern Division outdoor track championship

May 7, 2013

CUMBERLAND — A year ago at these Northern Division Championships, then-Central Falls High junior Tiffany Jenkins finished third overall in the high jump – courtesy of a leap of five feet, one inch – but truly wanted to improve that placement this time around.
Now a senior captain, she accomplished the same 5-1 on Tuesday afternoon, but found herself in a different situation. With the height, she earned the title, so is looking forward to bigger and better things with the premier meets just around the corner.

Pasquarelli, Linek snag first titles at Northern Divisions

May 6, 2013

CUMBERLAND — Mount St. Charles junior Anthony Pasquarelli admitted he felt “pretty good” while prepping for the high jump at these Northern Division Championships, held at Tucker Field on Monday afternoon.
But even he didn’t anticipate walking away from the meet with his first-ever divisional crown, thanks to a leap of six feet, two inches.
He had outstanding reason: After all, he had to battle Central Falls High junior phenom Erik Mateo, who back in February became that event’s champion at the state indoor meet at the Providence Career & Technical Academy’s field house.
