Cumberland wrestling | Clippers place third at Gorman Memorial tourney

January 11, 2015

CUMBERLAND – Cumberland High didn't reign in its own annual John D. Gorman Memorial Wrestling Tournament on Saturday, but veteran head coach Steve Gordon didn't mind an iota.

After all, some of the best squads from around New England received invitations, and Gordon perceives the event as a solid, mid-season “testing ground” for his grapplers.

Providence College basketball | Friars dig deep in OT win over Georgetown

January 10, 2015

PROVIDENCE – As Providence’s Ed Cooley and his coaching counterpart on Saturday afternoon, Georgetown’s John Thompson III, are well aware, the Big East was built on rough-and rumble play that at times can burn the retinas.

It’s a league that despite all the changes is still not for the faint of heart.

Providence College basketball | McGair: Friars charting new course with deeper bench

January 9, 2015


PROVIDENCE – As Providence’s win over Butler earlier in the week illustrated, dishing out minutes is no exact science.

Coaches like Ed Cooley have to consider every factor when concocting a game plan for that day’s opposition. The toughest decisions don’t always boil down to playing zone or man-to-man on defense. There is one consideration that carries prime importance: Ultimately, you play the guys who provide the best chance to win.

Burrillville – Davies girls' basketball | Patriots’ defense paves way for 51-43 win over Broncos

January 9, 2015

LINCOLN  –  You would think head coach Joe Handy would have been thrilled after his Davies Tech players had collected a pivotal 51-43 victory over Burrillville at Gaskin Alumni Hall on Friday night.

After all, his defense allowed only one Bronco – senior center Catherine Keable – to reach double figures in scoring, and forced a whopping 41 turnovers.

Handy, however, seemed disenchanted with the Division III-North triumph.

Cumberland/Lincoln – Mount Girls' Hockey | Lions look sharp in 5-3 triumph over Mounties

January 9, 2015


WOONSOCKET -- To head coach Tom Pereira, something was clearly missing in the first seven games of the season for the Lincoln/Cumberland Co-op team.

That “someone” was prized transfer Samantha Wellington, who made her season debut Friday against ironically her former club, Mount St. Charles. Though the sophomore did not create a ripple on the scorer’s sheet, she impacted the game in other areas in helping the Lions top the Mounties, 5-3, at Adelard Arena.

Lincoln Swimming | Hungry for a bite at a state title, Lady Lions cruise past Cranston East

January 8, 2015


LINCOLN  –  It’s still early in the Division II dual-meet slate, so Lincoln High senior tri-captain Nicole Moneghan isn’t as concerned with her times as she was during her underclassmen years.

Instead, as she’s building toward what she hopes is a premier individual showing at the Rhode Island State Championships in late February, she’s concentrating more on the development of some of the Lions’ younger aquawomen.

The simplistic reason: Moneghan wants to see her school claim a long-awaited state crown.
