Unfortunately for the Mounties, they were unable to bury any of their three shots in the extra five-minute session and were forced to settle for a wild 6-6 tie with the Quakers at Thayer Arena.

Former Woonsocket High standout Brooke Coderre found that out in August before she even put on her high tops as an incoming freshman at Franklin Pierce University.
“It was probably the first day,” she said.”I realized it right away, leaving all my friends and playing for a new team, a new coach. You realize pretty quick it’s not high school.”

PROVIDENCE – Six months since her shocking win in the high jump at last year’s outdoor state meet, Kaylnn Pitts was back in her element.
The indoor track & field season began in early December but for the Woonsocket High sophomore on Thursday night it was her first time competing in the vertical leap.
