December 29, 2011

WOONSOCKET — Dave Belisle loves to see non-league games like this -- a hard-fought, down-to-the-wire matchup against a formidable out-of-state team that will only help make Mount St. Charles a better squad down the line when the Mounties take on their Division I opponents.

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.
“I don’t like not leading,” said the Cumberland High junior. “I don’t feel like it’s my race.”
For almost the entire distance of the 3,000-meter run at Wednesday’s Rhode Island Track Classic, Crawley took his customary, front-runner position, rattling off consistent 200 splits between 36-37 seconds.
The Clipper standout did the necessary work for a victory in the regional meet, it just wasn’t enough.

Cumberland, Tolman net tourney wins

December 27, 2011

CUMBERLAND – By Gary Reedy’s estimation, eight years have elapsed since Cumberland High last captured the Cumberland-Lincoln Boys & Girls Holiday Tournament.
Needless to say, putting an end to such a drought would brighten the Clippers’ spirits heading into the coming year. Cumberland earned the right to play in the championship game after disposing of Woonsocket, 71-63, Tuesday night in the Wellness Center. Junior Ben Bradley paced Cumberland with 19 points along with eight assists and five rebounds.

The Mounties came out flying from the first period and never let up, rolling to a 5-1 victory over the Marauders at Adelard Arena. Sophomore Tyler Scroggins and senior captain Brian Campbell each scored twice for Mount, which takes on St. Dominic (Maine) Academy in the semifinals tonight at 8.

Lincoln wins high-scoring clash vs. Toll Gate

December 26, 2011

WARWICK – Lincoln High is young this season with more than half of its roster consisting of freshmen and sophomores.
According to head coach James Riel, the one thing the Lions do have in their favor is depth.
While Lincoln may still struggle somewhat against the upper-echelon of teams in Division I, Riel envisions his squad being competitive against its other rivals.
The Lions gave evidence of that the past two games.
