May 14, 2012

CUMBERLAND — If there’s any good news for Cumberland High, it will return to Division I-North action beginning Wednesday afternoon, when head coach Marty Crowley’s crew hosts La Salle Academy at 3:45.

N.S. grabs another 1-0 victory over Burrillville

May 14, 2012

BURRILLVILLE — Here’s a case of deja vu that North Smithfield likes and Burrillville loathes.

Carlton struck out a season-high 16 batters and walked just one en route to a magnificent two-hitter that helped the Northmen improve to 9-2, and for the moment, hold a half-game lead over Woonsocket (9-3) in the airtight Division II-North standings.

At several points during his announcement, Chafee made it clear that he wants his action to be one step toward allowing full gay marriage rights in Rhode Island.
