Defending champion Mounties haven’t missed a beat

February 9, 2012

WOONSOCKET --- Before the season started, Steve Shea had his share of concerns regarding his Mount St. Charles team and its quest to three-peat as state champions.
Graduation took away a talented senior class that helped the Mounties claim a 19-1 record and roll past Bay View in the state finals, and the voids left the second-year coach with quite a few questions to answer.
Can he successfully put together a third line? Who will fill in the blanks on defense? And what contributions can he get from his younger players, which include five freshmen and a few other first-year skaters?

Spelling bee was a tableau of talent

February 9, 2012

LINCOLN — Little did Alexandra Fish know that when she accurately spelled the noun tableau, defined by Webster's Dictionary as “a striking, dramatic scene or picture,” she was living one herself.

Fish, who out-dueled fellow schoolmate and sixth-grader Alexandra Theroux, now will represent the district at the Rhode Island State Spelling Bee, to be held at this same site on Saturday, March 12 at 10 a.m.
