PROVIDENCE — Monday afternoon saw the Rhode Island Interscholastic League’s Principals’ Committee on Athletics convene for one final time in 2011-12.

BARRINGTON — When 13-time LPGA Tour winner Juli Inkster discovered about two weeks ago that she would be paired with Champions Tour “Iron Man” Dana Quigley for the first round of the 14th annual CVS Caremark Charity Classic, she was ecstatic.
“I was really excited to be playing with Dana,” she said minutes after the two had mustered a birdie on the final hole on Monday afternoon. She then deadpanned, “I'm glad they put me with someone who can tolerate me for 18 holes.

The son becomes the father: Derwin and Mason Williams

June 16, 2012

What is the most important gift a father can give to his child?
If you answer unconditional love or a top-flight education, you’re right on target. What about providing a supportive and nurturing home life geared toward helping one’s offspring achieve their best? Can’t find fault with that, either.
Yet what if you were fortunate enough to have a father who could deliver on all those fronts and for good measure was a pro athlete? And what if you, his child, stood in a position where chasing after the identical great white whale of athletic prowess was not merely a possibility, but definite?

Soukhamthath delivers first-round TKO at Twin River

June 16, 2012

LINCOLN — For Andre Soukhamthath, Thursday afternoon’s frustration at the weigh-in was dwarfed by Friday night’s jubilation at the Twin River Event Center.

Soukhamthath (now 2-1) spoiled the pro debut of Vinny Tisconie of Shrewsbury, Mass. by putting him away with a TKO just 2:06 into the fight.

PROVIDENCE --- The recently-graduated seniors on the Central Falls and North Smithfield football teams put on their helmets and pads on Wednesday night and worked out together on the Northmen’s turf complex to prepare for one final game before officially turning the pages on their high school careers.

June 13, 2012

Now if only he had a scouting report on his opponent.

McGair: It's time to give Bard a definite path

June 11, 2012

Through all the video and bullpen sessions along with everything else geared toward the task of Reconstruction: The Daniel Bard Story, there’s one loose end left.
What exactly is Bard’s mound assignment moving forward – starter or reliever? Judging by the early returns in his minor-league stint with the PawSox, such a pretty important clarification appears to have been left off the struggling pitcher’s itinerary, the one that the Red Sox brain trust undoubtedly compiled and left atop Bard’s equipment bag as he packed up his Fenway Park locker.
