Mount collects just four hits in loss to SRA, Cesino

April 18, 2012

WOONSOCKET — Late last week, St. Raphael Academy head coach Tom “Saar” Sorrentine explained to his senior ace, Nick Cesino, that he would draw the start when the Saints took on host Mount St. Charles on Wednesday morning.
He also told the righthander that the Mounties' infield contained a rather tall mound, and suggested he get to know it better over the weekend.
Cesino followed his mentor's order and threw some pitches from the foreign rubber on Sunday, and it became rather obvious as the innings passed he had become rather familiar with it.

Mount suffers ugly loss, falls to Smithfield, 15-10

April 17, 2012

WOONSOCKET --- The 1-3 start is surprising. So was Mount St. Charles’s play in its Division I-North game against visiting Smithfield on Tuesday afternoon.
The Mounties turned in a lackluster performance against their neighboring foes and dearly paid for it in a game that took nearly three hours to complete. The Sentinels banged out 14 hits and took advantage of five Mount errors and a number of wild pitches and passed balls en route to a 15-10 victory.

Dave Constantino has been competing in marathons for a decade, and when it came down to recalling the hottest ones he has run, the Cumberland resident didn’t hesitate to bring up the 26.2-mile adventure he encountered on Monday at the Boston Marathon.
“That was probably the hottest marathon I have ever done out of the 10 years I have been competing,” Constantino said on Tuesday morning while he was “recuperating” at Scarborough Beach. “That was unbelievable. It was a tough one. It was a tough one for everybody.”

April 16, 2012

BOSTON — Hilary Dionne, a former cross-country and track & field standout from Cumberland High School, finished 15th among women at the Boston Marathon Monday, crossing the finish line in 2:51.56.

WOONSOCKET — On Tuesday, host Cumberland High pounded out 17 hits, including nine for extra bases, en route to a 14-0 “mercy rule” pasting of Smithfield High.
