Novans' Pitts has come a long way

January 3, 2012

PROVIDENCE — Back in the spring of 2010 at the outdoor state meet, Kaylnn “K.K.” Pitts shocked the competition (and herself) when the then-freshman from Woonsocket High cleared 5 feet, 3 inches to earn the individual title in the high jump.
“I didn’t think I would win, really,” Pitts recalled. “I wasn’t really counting my steps. I was just jumping.”
Since that breakthrough performance only one person has stood in the way of the Villa Novan standout repeating the feat. It was an athlete that actually finished third that day, La Salle Academy’s Dakota Dailey-Harris.

January 2, 2012

BOSTON --- After watching his father and younger brother make news on the baseball diamond last summer with the New England champion Cumberland American Little League all-star team, Brian Belisle got an opportunity to steal the show on one of baseball’s most historic ballfields on Monday night.
But Belisle did so with a hockey stick, not a bat and glove, with his Mount St. Charles Academy teammates at Fenway Park in their “Frozen Fenway 2012” duel against Cathedral High of Springfield, Mass., and the junior center came through with the best game of his young high school career.

January 1, 2012

It’s two days into 2012. The past year is now a distance memory. Time sure does fly. It seems like just a short time ago that the winter season was wrapping up, one that included an extraordinary performance by the Tolman High boys’ basketball team in the Division II quarterfinals. The summer, as it always does, went by quickly. But not before a group of young 12-year-old kids from the Cumberland American All Star team earned their way to Williamsport, Pa., for the Little League World Series.

December 30, 2011

A little of this, a little of that as we bid adieu to 2011 …

December 28, 2011

PROVIDENCE – Whether it’s a cross-country or track race, there’s only one place where Trevor Crawley feels the most comfortable, and that’s right up front.
