Tolman cages Cumberland, 80-61

December 28, 2010

CUMBERLAND --– Players like Rodney Bustillo and Elijiah Wiggins don’t need an entire game to make a difference.
Just give them a little time to start heating up.
The Tolman High seniors got sizzling hot in the second half of Tuesday’s opener with Cumberland in the annual Cumberland/Lincoln Boys & Girls Club Holiday Tournament and turned a 38-all tie at the break into a runaway 80-61 rout at the Wellness Center.

Mounties rout St. Dominic

December 27, 2010

WOONSOCKET — Mount St. Charles Academy didn’t have too many low moments in its run to the Division I state championship last season, but one of them came in the first round of last season’s Holiday Face-Off.
In that game, the Mounties turned in one of their worst showings of the season and dearly paid for it in the form of a 5-2 loss to Bishop Guertin High of Nashua, N.H.

No shortage of memories in 2010

December 26, 2010

Sometimes things move pretty quickly around here – almost too quickly to catch up and fully appreciate what has transpired.
One day we’re ushering in the winter sports season while the high school Super Bowls have yet to be contested. The non-stop nature extends to all seasons and sports, and we here at Blackstone Valley Sports have no choice but to hop aboard the next train or run the risk of being left behind.

December 23, 2010

WOONSOCKET – When the season first began, Kyle Ivey-Jones figured his senior-laden squad would be competitive in Division I.
The Woonsocket High coach never expected what has transpired over the last month.
Two days before Christmas, the Villa Novans have been in the spirit of giving to their opponents and are now staring at an 0-5 league mark.

Lots has changed for Villa Novan hoopsters

December 22, 2010

WOONSOCKET — As Christmas approaches, college students are returning home from their campuses near and far away, reuniting with hometown friends, high school pals and former teammates.
Very few students in a working-class city like Woonsocket proceed in a straight line from high school graduation to earning their college diploma in four or even five years. Some have to work to earn money for college. Others start off at one college, find they made the wrong choice for themselves and return home, choosing to attend CCRI or Rhode Island College as their goals change.

Beyeler named next manager of PawSox

December 22, 2010

PAWTUCKET — As manager of Double-A Portland the past four seasons, Arnie Beyeler was at the forefront of nurturing while simultaneously pushing all of the better known prospects in the Red Sox’ farm chain. Beyeler’s mission was to not just get the likes of Clay Buchholz, Jacoby Ellsbury, Daniel Bard and Ryan Kalish ready for life at Triple-A, but to present them a sample of what life is like as a major leaguer.

Woonsocket girls pummel Lincoln, 45-15

December 21, 2010

LINCOLN – The offense has had its share of spurts, but it hasn’t quite clicked yet.
The defense has also gotten better.
Since its humbling 25-point loss to Bay View Academy in its Division I opener a few weeks ago, head coach George Coderre has been pleased with the progress of his Woonsocket High team, one that lost a considerable amount of talent from last year’s state championship squad.

Tour de Patrick coming in March

December 20, 2010

Every race that Charlie Breagy creates appears to turn to gold.
The past few months in Providence, his Monster Mini Dash 5K on Halloween and his Downtown Jingle 5K a couple of weeks ago, drew more than 2,000 participants to the starting line. His annual Ocean State Cross-Country Invitational has 5,000-plus high school and middle-school runners congregating at Goddard Park in mid-October.
