Nasuti hopeful Woonsocket sports will remain intact

July 29, 2011

WOONSOCKET — Woonsocket High School athletic director George Nasuti is guardedly optimistic that his interscholastic sports program will continue to enjoy the success, and occasional state championships, that the Villa Novans have accrued in recent years.

Post 14 still alive

July 29, 2011

WEST WARWICK – Instead of dwelling on Thursday’s loss to Collette Vacations Post 79, the boys from Cumberland Post 14 answered the challenge of keeping its season alive.
Top-seeded Post 14 lives to fight another day thanks to eight standout innings from knuckleball artist Zach Perry and key hits from Tyler Santaniello and Nick Zammarelli. Almost forgotten in the aftermath of Friday’s 5-2 win against defending champion New England Frozen Lemonade/Shields Post 43 was the spectacular – some may argue season-saving – catch Matt Sorkin made in center field to end the top of the first inning.

McGair: Putting the trade deadline in perspective

July 28, 2011

The fourth week in July means the following:
1). The bombardment of back-to-school commercials, serving as a cruel reality check and a reminder that summer reading will not be accomplished through osmosis or CliffsNotes.
2). There’s roughly a month remaining in the minor league season. Where does the time go?
3). Another fast-moving July 31 trading deadline is just days away from building toward a crescendo.

Collette Vacations bests top seed Post 14

July 28, 2011

EAST PROVIDENCE — It’s been quite some time since Collette Vacations Post 79 enjoyed a nine-game win streak or found itself two wins away from a state championship, but that’s the state of the Pawtucket ballclub heading into tonight’s 8 p.m. winners’ bracket final at McCarthy Stadium.
Eric Geisman gave a splendid performance on the mound and Post 79 did just enough offensively to help produce a 4-1 victory over Cumberland Post 14 on Thursday night in their semifinal-round game at Pierce Field.

Olympic dreams on hold for ex-MSC standout Lavallee

July 28, 2011

Roland Lavallee has never veered away from his dream of qualifying for the U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials in January.
But for the last nine months, the former Mount St. Charles standout has certainly been tested with a series of personal and physical setbacks.

Cumberland Post 14 downs Shoreline

July 27, 2011

WEST WARWICK — To say that Ryan O’Dell and his Cumberland Post 14 teammates are looking forward to the American Legion Senior Division playoffs would be a gross understatement.
Just a few months earlier, many of the same players on manager Jim Dawber’s crew figured prominently on the Lincoln High baseball squad that exited quickly from the Division I playoffs. It was the type of ending that was viewed in some corners as a complete shock, especially since Lincoln had captured the I-North division title and rattled off seven consecutive wins to begin the season.

Cumberland American runs away with state title

July 27, 2011

WARWICK — After capturing the state title for 11-year-olds last year with basically the same core of players, Cumberland American All-Star coach Dave Belisle kind of had a feeling his team had what it took to excel in the Major Division this summer.
Just a little more than a month after the season began, his young and talented players certainly proved it.

Rain halts starts of Legion "Elite Eight"

July 26, 2011

WEST WARWICK --- They will try this again today.
Tuesday’s start to the American Legion Senior Division “Elite Eight” double-elimination tournament only reached a few innings before inclement weather rained on most of the state and suspended both opening-round doubleheaders at McCarthy Field in West Warwick and Pierce Field in East Providence.

A message to CALL: Enjoy the Moment

July 26, 2011

It’s a special time for the players of the Cumberland American Little League All-Star team. The squad, which is mostly comprised of 12-year-old youths, stormed through the District IV Major Division Tournament and after two dominating victories at the state level stands just a win away from representing Rhode Island at the Eastern Regionals in Bristol, Conn., next week.

July 25, 2011

It’s a 13.1-mile race. No matter how you look at it, it possesses some kind of challenge for anyone that attempts the distance.
