Relentless weather pesters Valley

February 1, 2011

WOONSOCKET — If you liked yesterday’s weather, you’re going to love what Mother Nature has in store for us today.
The latest in a series of unusually fierce winter storms turns out to be a double-dipper. After dumping four to seven inches of snow across the Blackstone Valley Tuesday, a second wave — a hard-to-predict combo of snow, sleet and rain — is expected to whack the region by nightfall.

CHS grapplers still going strong

CUMBERLAND — Another snow day, another lost practice session for Cumberland High’s wrestling team.
“This makes me very uncomfortable,” Cumberland coach Steve Gordon was saying on Tuesday morning as another snowstorm hit the region. “I don’t have any control over the kids’ weights when we can’t practice. But my guys know what to do. They are pretty good about it. Some of them will go over to Northeast Elite (a wrestling school in Woonsocket) and get a workout in. We can’t practice at the school because if school is cancelled, it’s over. You can’t practice.”

Pitts leads Woonsocket to division track title

January 31, 2011

PROVIDENCE --- Woonsocket High earned the dual-meet crown in the Dwyer Division with a sweep of Ponaganset and West Warwick. The Villa Novans, last year’s divisional champions, concluded a perfect 8-0 season in the league.
“One of the goals this year was to try and go undefeated,” said WHS coach Dan Richard. “I am not sure a Woonsocket girls’ team has ever done that in indoor. That was one of the goals. We got some new girls out this year that helped. It’s been a good year. They worked hard in practice and stayed focused on what we needed to do.”
