Mount girls primed for volleyball playoffs

October 26, 2011

WOONSOCKET – What is an appropriate slogan for the 2011 Mount St. Charles girls’ volleyball teams?
“Keep the good times rolling” seems applicable, given that the Mounties under the careful watch and observation of head coach Josh D’Abate have blossomed into a perennial championship contender. Standing at 13-0 in Division I-North with one regular season game remaining – tonight at home vs. La Salle – this Mount team is following in the footsteps of its decorated predecessors (MSC has posted a whopping 65-10 regular-season record since 2007, winning the Div. II championship in 2009).

Short-handed Friars top Assumption in exhibition contest

October 25, 2011

PROVIDENCE — Ed Cooley knew he was in store for some rough sledding the moment he signed up at Providence College last March.
The task is great, but even Cooley had shake his head in disbelief based on what went down prior to the Friars hitting the floor for their first exhibition game on Tuesday night. A thin roster was stretched even thinner as Cooley had just eight scholarship players available for his team’s tuneup against Assumption College.

Call it generosity: When the Jacobs’ 46-year-old cape was destroyed by fire last winter, a citywide network of supporters launched a prolonged and persistent fundraising campaign to help the couple rebuild bigger and better than ever.
