WEB ONLY: Mount forces Game 3, tops Hawks, 3-2

March 11, 2012

PROVIDENCE -- There will be a Game 3.
Mount St. Charles forced a third and deciding game in its best-of-three State Championship title series with Bishop Hendricken on Saturday night before another large crowd at Providence College’s Schneider Arena.
Steve Donahue’s goal 1:12 into the third period and goalie Brian Larence’s spectacular 34-save effort were the differences in the Mounties’ crucial 3-2 win that kept their quest for a fifth straight state title (and 43rd in the team’s storied history) alive.

No bull about it: Cumberland's Patrick signs on with South Florida

March 10, 2012

CUMBERLAND — Now that he's decided where he will attend college, Cumberland High senior pitcher Justin Patrick – a 6-5, 205-pound righty – just wants to focus on the next task at hand: Helping the Clippers to an outstanding Division I-North campaign and securing a playoff berth later this spring.
“I personally think we can get to states this year,” Patrick stated Thursday afternoon as he relaxed inside the school's Wellness Center. “The last couple of years, we played OK as a team, but I don't feel we reached our potential.

Overtime unkind to MSC in loss to Hawks, 4-3

March 9, 2012

PROVIDENCE — This time, overtime was not Mount St. Charles’s time to shine.
For the past five postseasons, overtime had belonged to the Mounties, who won eight straight OT contests during that stretch, but on Friday night, they saw that run come to a bitter end in the opening game of their best-of-three State Championship title series with Bishop Hendricken.

It's on! Mount, Hendricken duel for state title again

March 8, 2012

WOONSOCKET --- This year has been a tale of two seasons for Mount St. Charles.
The first season was not a very good one by the program’s standards. Back-to-back losses to La Salle in early December and a 3-4 record in January did not sit well with the team’s loyal fan base, even though Mount was entering the season with one of its youngest teams in several seasons.

Villa Novans' Fugere is R.I. Gatorade Player of Year

March 8, 2012

WOONSOCKET — George Coderre sounded more like a proud father rather than a head coach upon being informed that Woonsocket High senior Kailey Fugere had been selected by Gatorade as the 2011-12 R.I. Girls Basketball Player of the Year.
“She’s always been an outstanding athlete,” noted Coderre on Thursday morning, “but to see her round out her game and see her adjust from year to year … she’s a quiet and unassuming kid and to see her take on more of a leadership role, that’s why she’s been a pleasure to coach.”

Courtney Kent's enjoying a superb swimming career

March 8, 2012

When Courtney Kent took to the starting blocks for the R.I. Interscholastic Girls Swimming Championships at the University of Rhode Island’s Tootell Natatorium back on Feb. 25, she desperately wanted to defend her titles in the 200- and 500-yard freestyles.
Naturally, it had something to do with her desire to achieve personal-best times – not to mention proving to herself she still was the Ocean State's fastest – but much more so to show her father, Michael, how much she had improved over the years.

La Salle skates past Mount to win girls' state crown

March 6, 2012

PROVIDENCE — As 1998 U. S. Olympic women’s hockey star and gold medallist Sara DeCosta draped runner-up medals around the necks of the Mount St. Charles’ girls, most wiped away tears.
Their disappointment was more than obvious after La Salle Academy had mustered a 2-0 victory over the Mounties at Providence College’s Schneider Arena on Tuesday night. With that triumph in this rubber game of the R.I. Championship Division Tournament’s best-of-three final set, the Rams had earned its first-ever title in the category, and closed its season at 16-5.

One and done: Seton Hall stomps Providence, 79-47

March 6, 2012

NEW YORK — In some ways it was an ending, as in the end of the season for Providence College. In other respects, Tuesday night’s 79-47 bludgeoning at the hands of Seton Hall in opening round of the Big East Tournament can be viewed as the official jumping-off point to the Ed Cooley era.
Cooley’s first season at PC ended in futile fashion, his club suffering a 32-point defeat that goes in the books as the largest loss margin for the Friars in their Big East tourney history. Providence has now dropped 14 of its last 16 conference tournament games.

PC's Driscoll, Big East prepare for changes

March 6, 2012

NEW YORK — Wednesday morning will see the presidents and athletic directors from the Big East gather in a central location. The guest list will include party crashers in the form of representatives from the schools in line to join the league.
Wouldn’t you like to be a fly in that room?
“I think they’ll introduce some of the new members and [league president John Marinatto] is going to give us an update to where we are on a lot of issues,” Providence College athletic director Driscoll remarked. “It should be a good meeting and I’m looking forward to it.”

Confident Friars ready to take center stage in NYC

March 6, 2012

PROVIDENCE — Vincent Council provided the type of response that epitomizes the mindset of the Providence College Friars heading into the Big East Tournament.
To summarize, the junior doesn’t expect the Friars to be a one-and-done casualty, their season ending at the hands of Seton Hall on Day 1 of the five-day mad dash leading up to a hoops coronation at Madison Square Garden.
