LINCOLN --- For the first time in his pro career, Woonsocketâs Joe Gardner will be fighting for a championship belt, and he will try to claim his prize in the six-round co-feature of tonightâs CESâs (Classic Entertainment & Sports, Inc.) âHomecoming Kingâ card at the Twin River Event Center.
And for the first time since coming back to the sport in May after a 7Âœ-year absence, Gardner has had to prepare for a fight without his favorite sparring partner, West Warwickâs Keith Kozlin, giving him some valuable rounds.
CUMBERLAND â When Air National Guard Tech Sgt. Josh Lemois told his father he was giving up a chance to become a local policeman to go to Afghanistan, Bruce Lemois thought he understood.
He had to go.
Why else would Josh turn his back on his dream job?
âHe wants to be a Cumberland police officer,â said Lemois, a member of the Cumberland Town Council. âNot a Warwick police officer. Not Providence. He wants to be a member of his hometown police department.â
For Tolman, Woonsocket, and St. Raphael, the Division IIâs âsecond seasonâ begins this weekend. For Burrillville and East Providence, their pursuit at a second season continues.
Five Blackstone Valley teams will try to extend their respective seasons past Thanksgiving this week when the Division II quarterfinal round takes place and the Division I and III regular seasons ramble down the home stretch.
PROVIDENCE â The gangly young girl who was taller than most of her teachers in eighth grade at North Smithfield Middle School signed a pretty important document on Wednesday morning.
Corinne Coia, now a 6-foot-4 senior at The Lincoln School, signed her letter of intent to attend the University of Rhode Island next year on a full basketball scholarship.

SOUTH KINGSTOWN â Talent and overall heart.
That has been the cornerstone to Mount St. Charles Academyâs sterling debut into the Division I ranks this fall, one that included an undefeated 14-0 league mark in I-North and a 16-0 regular-season record.
To no oneâs surprise, those two attributes were on full display during the top-seeded Mountiesâ semifinal match with the Prout School on Tuesday night.
Only this time, it wouldnât prove enough.
LINCOLN â You could say the elements helped even the playing field between Lincoln and North Smithfield. With a steady rain sweeping across Chet Nichols Field, Tuesdayâs Division II quarterfinal match became a matter of survival.
Thanks to two goals in the final nine minutes, the Lions emerged from this mud bath with a 2-0 victory over the Northmen, who played the game minus the services of head coach Steve DeMeo. DeMeo was relieved of his coaching duties after Mondayâs arrest for allegedly transmitting inappropriate messages to a minor.
