BURRILLVILLE – Despite dropping a tough 7-6 decision to the Toll Gate/Pilgrim/Warwick Vets squad at Warwick’s Thayer Arena the night after Christmas, Burrillville/Ponaganset Co-op first-year head coach Cortney Lacey deemed it the finest collective outing of the campaign.
She changed her mind after her Broncos had manufactured a stellar 8-1 Division I triumph over the Smithfield/North Smithfield/Coventry Co-op team at Levy Rink on holiday Monday afternoon.
WOONSOCKET – In a fierce battle between the two top teams in Div. III North on Monday, Mount St. Charles and Classical, the Mounties came out on top for a 67-66 overtime win.
Mount sophomore Skylar O’Connell hit the game-winning layup with 18 seconds left in OT with her team down one.
WOONSOCKET – Mount St. Charles cruised to an easy 8-1 win over Cranston on Friday night at Adelard Arena.
The Mounties jumped out to a quick lead with four first-period goals and Cranston never challenged after that.
LINCOLN – Davies Tech head coach Bill Meekins has seen his fair share of talented athletes in his decades of mentoring, but admitted Masters Regional Academy’s Pablo Perez is perhaps the best.
For all the praise the Big East’s 18-game double round-robin men’s basketball schedule has drawn for its simplicity and straightforwardness, a few wrinkles still need to be ironed out.
LINCOLN – A year ago next month, then-Lincoln High sophomore Mollie Westrick had high hopes of continuing her dominance at the Rhode Island Interscholastic Girls’ Swimming Championships.
As a freshman, Westrick wowed the throngs in the Brown University natatorium by capturing not only the 100-yard butterfly but also the 100-yard backstroke titles.
