Marathon veteran Chevalier returns to Boston

April 14, 2012

Maria Chevalier loves to run. She’s been doing it for nearly two-thirds of her life, starting with her years as a cross country and track standout in the early ’90s at Clear Creek High School in Idaho Springs, Col., and she’s taken part in everything from a simple 5K to a grueling 50-mile trail run.
But when it comes to the one race she enjoys running the most, the nine-year Cumberland resident won’t hesitate to give you an answer.

Clippers stay hot, deck Mounties

April 12, 2012

WOONSOCKET — On Tuesday, host Cumberland High pounded out 17 hits, including nine for extra bases, en route to a 14-0 “mercy rule” pasting of Smithfield High.
Skipper Paul Murphy’s crew didn’t supply him and assistant Dale O’Dell with the same kind of offensive barrage 48 hours later at Mount St. Charles, but it did register eight hits to post a second consecutive “mercy rule” triumph over the Mounties, this time an 11-0 verdict on Thursday.

No contest as softball Lions belt Clippers

April 11, 2012

CUMBERLAND — The softball seasons have passed and the names have come and gone, but one thing you could always count on year after year any time Lincoln and Cumberland played each other was a spirited, competitive duel -- a showdown that was usually going to be decided by one or two runs.
That’s what the small gathering of fans that braved the chilly weather at Wednesday afternoon’s Division I-North affair at Tucker Field expected from the two unbeaten rivals, but what they got was a shocking surprise.

PawSox players weigh in on Guillen's comments

April 10, 2012

PAWTUCKET – Tuesday morning saw a small group of PawSox players huddle around the clubhouse television as a contrite Ozzie Guillen attempted to move past the uproar he caused over supportive remarks the Miami Marlins manager made in reference to Cuban dictator Fidel Castro.
Among those who sat and watched Guillen with great interest were Jose Iglesias and Luis Exposito. In fact, the pair stood side-by-side for roughly 10 minutes before Iglesias plopped himself down into a leather chair, his eyes clearly fixated on what Guillen was saying.

Cumberland's 17-hit attack roughs up Smithfield

April 10, 2012

CUMBERLAND — It’s almost eerie how well Cumberland High struck the ball on Tuesday afternoon.
“We hit it pretty well in our second game against Moses Brown, and in the Injury Fund (tilt) against Woonsocket, but I’ve never seen anything like this,” explained senior righty Justin Patrick after the Clippers clubbed 17 hits – including nine for extra bases – in a 14-0 thrashing of still-winless Smithfield High at Tucker Field.

Andrew Miller poised to join PawSox after two successful rehab outings with Class A Greenville

April 10, 2012

PAWTUCKET – Finally, there’s some good news concerning Andrew Miller.
Barring any setbacks, the hurler expects to take the next step in his rehab and join the Pawtucket Red Sox at some point on the team’s upcoming nine-game road trip. Miller made his second of two appearances with Single-A Greenville Monday, seeking to build off of Saturday’s one-inning stint that featured no runs on two hits. He did just that, retiring all three batters he faced on two groundball outs and one strikeout.
“I felt healthy and that’s all I can ask for,” said Miller when reached Monday afternoon.

NORTH SMITHFIELD — A couple of bunts and a couple of stolen bases decided the Division II-North’s best pitchers’ duel of the young season on Friday.
Jessica Tremblay’s safety squeeze bunt in the bottom of the third inning drove in Jamie LaFazia with the run that allowed North Smithfield sophomore Karissa Carlton to outduel Burrillville junior Cassidy Tedeschi and the host Northmen to squeak out a 1-0 victory that took 85 minutes to complete.
