WOONSOCKET â€” Even now, more than seven years after serial killer Jeff Mailhot was captured, the case of the mild-mannered monster from Cato Hill still holds a lesson or two for some of the best cops in the world.

PROVIDENCE â€“ Whether itâ€™s a cross-country or track race, thereâ€™s only one place where Trevor Crawley feels the most comfortable, and thatâ€™s right up front.

For almost the entire distance of the 3,000-meter run at Wednesdayâ€™s Rhode Island Track Classic, Crawley took his customary, front-runner position, rattling off consistent 200 splits between 36-37 seconds.
The Clipper standout did the necessary work for a victory in the regional meet, it just wasnâ€™t enough.
CUMBERLAND â€“ Tolman head coach Mike Kayata can live with Jonathan Percy firing away from the baseline. Itâ€™s a whole other matter when the 6-foot-7 junior tees up a shot from behind the 3-point stripe.
