Cumberland takes baseball thriller from MSC

April 19, 2011

CUMBERLAND — Cumberland High coach Paul Murphy attributes his team’s latest surge in the ultra-competitive Division I-North to its work at the plate
In Tuesday morning’s contest against Mount St. Charles Academy, Murphy’s crew didn’t quite get the double-digit hits like it did against Moses Brown and Smithfield last week. But the Clippers did get the key hits it needed to earn themselves a come-from-behind 6-5 victory over the Mounties at Tucker Field.

Mount soars past SRA

April 18, 2011

PAWTUCKET — Mount St. Charles is starting to look a bit like the baseball program that captured two straight Division II state titles before joining Division I this season.
The Mounties won their second Division I game in four days on Monday, breaking open a tight contest against St. Raphael Academy with a seven-run rally in the fifth inning en route to a 10-3 victory.
Mount, now 2-3 in Division I, got a complete-game pitching performance from junior Taylor Sutherland, who scattered seven hits and settled in after allowing single runs in both the first and second innings.

Constantino, Lux prepare for Boston Marathon

April 17, 2011

BOSTON — For the elite runners at this morning’s Boston Marathon, the goal is to be the first to cross the finish line.
For several of the other participants, including Cumberland residents and forty-something runners Dave Constantino and Robert Lux, a winning performance is defined by the numbers on the clock when they reach their final destination at Copley Square.
Constantino and Lux, a pair of triathletes as well as good friends, those numbers they’re hoping begin with a two. In other words, a sub three-hour effort.

Goucher looking to make history in Beantown

April 16, 2011

BOSTON — Kara Goucher looks at her performances in the 5,000 and 10,000 meters runs at the 2008 Beijing Olympics and her inaugural appearance at the Boston Marathon two years ago as sharing a common theme.
Goucher was considered among the medal contenders at the Summer Games, but placed a still-respectable ninth in the 5K and tenth in the 10K.

Theroux eyeing strong effort at Boston Marathon

April 16, 2011

LINCOLN – Mike Theroux doesn’t have to go too far back in his memory bank to recall the first time he went for a run.
That’s because it occurred just six years ago for the 47-year-old Lincoln resident.
“I ran from my house to Lincoln High School and back,” he said. “It was about a three-mile run. At the time I was happy I was actually doing it, but it was amazing how much that run took out of me.”
Theroux will be running three miles again tomorrow. Only this time, he’ll still have 23 more before he reaches his final destination.

April 15, 2011

SMITHFIELD – Cumberland High survived injuries to its starting pitcher and catcher on Friday to outlast Smithfield 6-5 in eight innings.
“This was a great team effort,” Cumberland coach Paul Murphy admitted. “Our starting pitcher, Hayden Namaka, hurt his hand and left in the third inning. Eric Murray, who had pitched only one inning this season, took over and gave us five good innings. And then our catcher, Matt Billington, got hurt and we replaced him with Matt Bare in the fourth inning.”

Nau: No reason for Red Sox fans to panic

April 13, 2011

The problem with Red Sox fans is they don’t know how to deal with slow starts. During the Terry Francona Era, their favorite team has never been worse than 28-24 on June 1. That mediocre beginning, which looks downright red-hot compared to this season’s 2-9 start, occurred in 2005. Yes, Boston rebounded to make the playoffs that year, bowing to eventual champion Chicago White Sox in the Division Series.

Mounties return to winning ways

April 13, 2011

WOONSOCKET --- A not-so-funny thing happened to Mount St. Charles Academy in its pursuit for its 50th consecutive victory earlier this week.
The Mounties claimed a 2-0 lead in their Division I match at home with South Kingstown High, only to watch the Rebels battle back to take the next three games and hand MSC its first defeat since 2008.
The loss was a bitter pill to swallow, but the Mounties found a way to bounce back nicely on Wednesday night and return to their winning ways at Coventry High’s expense.
