WOONSOCKET â€“ The pungent aroma of the holidays wafts from the freshly-cut pine trees in Douglas Taftâ€™s yard, but he hardly feels like celebrating anything.

CUMBERLAND â€” Junior tri-captain Kayleigh Canavan expected to swim rather well in Cumberland Highâ€™s Division I season opener against Smithfield on Tuesday afternoon, but what she accomplished, frankly, threw her for a loop.
Canavan not only manufactured two of her best times ever while capturing the 200-yard individual medley and 100-yard breaststroke, but she also mustered a superb 50 breaststroke leg in the 200 medley relay to pace her Clippers to an easier-than-expected 55-38 triumph over the Sentinels at the Aquatic Center.
