Mount spikers wrap up perfect regular season

October 27, 2011

WOONSOCKET — Perfect regular season. Three more wins and it will be the perfect ending.

Before Tolman can set its sights on a repeat Division II-B regular-season title, the Tigers are going to have to overcome a tall order tonight -- namely one of the biggest and best defensive teams in all of Division II in West Warwick.
The Wizards, who are 4-1 and a game behind Tolman (5-0) in the standings, boast plenty of size in their front seven with veteran linemen Aaron Koehler and Cesar Jimenez and two defensive ends that clearly have the attention of Tolman head coach Dave Caito.

Mount girls primed for volleyball playoffs

October 26, 2011

WOONSOCKET – What is an appropriate slogan for the 2011 Mount St. Charles girls’ volleyball teams?
“Keep the good times rolling” seems applicable, given that the Mounties under the careful watch and observation of head coach Josh D’Abate have blossomed into a perennial championship contender. Standing at 13-0 in Division I-North with one regular season game remaining – tonight at home vs. La Salle – this Mount team is following in the footsteps of its decorated predecessors (MSC has posted a whopping 65-10 regular-season record since 2007, winning the Div. II championship in 2009).

Short-handed Friars top Assumption in exhibition contest

October 25, 2011

PROVIDENCE — Ed Cooley knew he was in store for some rough sledding the moment he signed up at Providence College last March.
The task is great, but even Cooley had shake his head in disbelief based on what went down prior to the Friars hitting the floor for their first exhibition game on Tuesday night. A thin roster was stretched even thinner as Cooley had just eight scholarship players available for his team’s tuneup against Assumption College.

October 25, 2011

Bronco booters await big test on Wednesday

October 24, 2011

BURRILLVILLE – Over-confident? Thinking too far ahead?
Walking off the field, Burrillville high coach Amy Carbone couldn’t come up with a reason why her talented squad was simply overpowered by its Division III opponent.
That game was more than a month ago – a 5-0 defeat to Middletown on Sept. 19.
Since that defeat and the three games before it, it has been nothing but smooth sailing for the Lady Broncos. After its latest victory, a 11-0 Senior Day rout of Davies Tech on Monday afternoon, Burrillville improved its league record to 14-1-0.
