March 9, 2011

This might be Stephen Shea’s first season as a head coach, but the Mount St. Charles Academy mentor has been around Rhode Island’s girls’ hockey scene for the past several years as an assistant coach for the Mounties.
That being said, he’s seen plenty of postseason action, but he doesn’t recall seeing a battle for the state championship as balanced and competitive as the one that’s unfolding this season.

March 8, 2011

PROVIDENCE — Pawtucket Mayor Donald Grebien liked a lot of what he heard from Gov. Lincoln Chafee's first major presentation — a combined State of the State address and budget speech.
“It means $800,000 for Pawtucket this year and $1.6 million next year,” Grebien said in the House of Representatives chamber after the governor spoke. “It comes with some strings attached, but in this tough economy, this benefits the city and education.”

Good wrestling begins in the community

March 8, 2011

WOONSOCKET -- Wrestling is one high school sport in Rhode Island where the public vs. private school debate holds no water. Public schools have won 29 of the last 30 state team championships in wrestling.
Bishop Hendricken sneaked in to grab a state title back in 2004. Cumberland then ruled the state in 2005. Cranston West won the next four titles before the Clippers returned to the top in 2010. Warwick Vets prevailed in 2011.
Back in 1999, Johnston High won the state title, proving that even smaller public schools can reach the top in wrestling.
