Cumberland decks Coventry, faces Hendricken tonight

February 7, 2012

COVENTRY — After a successful weekend where they won four of their five dual meets at Mount Anthony Union (Vt.), the Coventry wrestling team returned to state competition hoping to prove a point against the most successful dual-meet team in the state over the last five seasons.
But Cumberland, which is looking for its third straight undefeated dual-meet campaign, had another idea. The Clippers breezed through the first matches and then rode the strength of their standout wrestlers – Erik Travers and Tom Lacroix – for a 46-24 Division I-North victory.

February 7, 2012

WOONSOCKET --- Woonsocket High did something on Tuesday that only one other team was able to do to Bay View Academy this season -- give the mighty Bengals a competitive battle.

February 7, 2012

LINCOLN – There are wins and there are BIG wins.
For Davies Tech, this one has to be listed under the latter category.

Sophomore Waleska Kelly fueled a total team effort by Davies, netting 12 points along with nine rebounds, seven steals and six blocks.
How important was this triumph for Davies?

Challenging week awaits Cumberland wrestlers

February 6, 2012

Steve Gordon has been coaching Cumberland High’s wrestling program since time began. Well, not quite. Just since he got the program started back in 1969. That’s 43 years, if you’re counting.
The 70-year-old coach spent many of those early years trying to build his program from the ground floor up, creating a wrestling community in Cumberland, one or two parents at a time, that formed the foundation for his program.
Gordon learned a lot from the Coventry High School wrestling program, a dynasty that produced 17 straight state championship teams between 1982-98.

Friars let win slip through their grasp

February 5, 2012

PROVIDENCE – Five additional minutes seemed like a risky proposition for the Providence Friars. Turns out it was.
The final verdict, an 87-84 nail-biter in West Virginia’s favor, only re-opened the wound regarding how PC let Sunday’s Big East contest slip away. Missed free throws coupled with an inability to snatch rebounds on the defensive end were the main culprits. The two bugaboos came back to bite the home team hard when Mountaineers senior Daryl “Truck” Bryant calmly and coolly splashed in a 3-pointer with 3.3 seconds remaining in OT, breaking what was a 84-84 affair.

Cooley reflects on first season with Friars; PC target Orlando Sanchez to decide following season

February 5, 2012

PROVIDENCE – There are times that Ed Cooley must feel like he’s being pulled in a thousand directions.

Based on the buzz surrounding one of the nation’s most talked about recruiting classes, Cooley has allowed Friar fans to dream big about what the future may hold.

February 5, 2012

BURRILLVILLE --- Chalk one up for the public school teams!

And one of the Broncos’ youngest players rose to the occasion in arguably his team’s biggest game of the season, as freshman Chad Stone netted a hat trick to help Burrillville produce a 4-2 victory.
