November 10, 2011

They’ve spent the past eight weeks working hard and overcoming some tough league opponents for the right to play in a meaningful game on Veteran’s Day weekend.

McGair: PC's Cooley proud of first recruiting class

November 10, 2011

Rick Pitino, sage that he is, shared this little anecdote at last month’s Big East media day – one that illustrates the waves new Providence College head coach Ed Cooley is making on the recruiting trail.
“He’s already attracting … he beat us out on a player recruiting-wise,” said Pitino point blank, his eyes lighting up as if they were filled with fire. “I would have said, when it got to Providence and us [Louisville], he would have had no shot in getting this player, but Ed got him. So he’s already made an impact.”

MSC's Hendricks sisters follow their hearts to URI

November 9, 2011

WOONSOCKET — During their truly exceptional high school careers on the Mount St. Charles Academy softball team, Emily and Olivia Hendricks have established themselves as the very best at their positions in the state.
Emily earned back-to-back All-State honors as a slick fielding shortstop who batted second and was an offensive threat from the left side of the plate, while Olivia posted a 36-15 mark as the Mounties’ ace pitcher, and offensively, was a bonafide run producer in the heart of the lineup.

Senior standouts Micaela Malboeuf (13 kills, 25 digs) and Michelle Malboeuf (11 kills, 20 digs) had big games for the Clippers, who defeated the Warriors by scored of 25-18, 25-19, 22-25, and 27-25 to advance.

MSC's Lace: College of Saint Rose ‘the place for me’

November 9, 2011

WOONSOCKET — The past 24 hours have been bittersweet for Kelsey Lace.
On Tuesday night, Lace suffered the worst loss of her outstanding high school career when her then-unbeaten Mount St. Charles Academy squad was ousted in four games in the Division I semifinals by Ponaganset High.
It was a very bitter ending to a brilliant four-year run with the Mounties -- one that included a Division II state championship her sophomore year and what will soon be a repeat appearance on the All-State team.

Joe Paterno's tunnel vision caused a train wreck

November 9, 2011

“With the benefit of hindsight, I wish I could have done more.”
– Joe Paterno
***
Who would have thought it would end this way for the legendary Penn State coach of 46 years? Paterno, the man of high moral values, the guy who once vowed not to retire and “leave college football to the Barry Switzers and Jackie Sherrills” of his coaching fraternity, had failed the biggest morality test of his life.

Burrillville's playoff runs ends with shootout loss

November 7, 2011

BURRILLVILLE — Burrillville High beat the darkness. It just couldn't beat its opponent.
No. 7 seed West Warwick High gave the second-seeded Broncos a quick exit in the postseason with a 3-2 overtime victory Monday afternoon in the Division III quarterfinals. Senior captain Rebecca Pacheco out-hustled two defenders and nailed the clincher over the head of goalie Vicki Libby just two minutes into the second mandatory OT period.
“It just came down to who wanted it more,” said Bronco head coach Amy Cardone. “It was pretty close up until the very end.”

Clippers' Crawley third in state championship race

November 6, 2011

FOSTER – About 600 meters into his race, Trevor Crawley wasn't in the position that he was looking for at Sunday's RIIL State Championship. Boxed in at the start, the Cumberland High junior found himself hovering near 20th place.
Not exactly a prime position for one of the state's top runners.
