Hendricken hands Lincoln another crossover loss

May 3, 2011

LINCOLN — Before a brutal, four-game stretch of crossover games, Lincoln High was sitting nicely atop the Division I-North standings with an unbeaten 8-0 mark.
It’s a little different now.
Facing some of the upper-echelon of squads from I-South and I-Central over the last week, the Lions suffered their third setback in the last four games Tuesday afternoon with a 5-1 loss to Bishop Hendricken at Chet Nichols Field. The Hawks belted out 11 hits and had a quality start from lefty Tim Pannone to improve to 9-2 for the spring.

Smithfield girls nail Novans, share dual-meet title

May 2, 2011

SMITHFIELD – When his team made the 15-minute bus ride to Smithfield High on Monday, Woonsocket coach Dan Richard knew his unbeaten Villa Novans were not facing the same Sentinel squad that suffered an 87-62 loss to Central Falls a few weeks ago for its first setback in eight years.
Richard was well aware that his Novan’s victory over the Warriors last week with ironically the same score, didn’t mean a whole lot in the Northern Division match-up.
Smithfield proved him right.
