Cannons' Smalley is Cumberland lacrosse coach

March 22, 2011

CUMBERLAND – They'll have a new head coach and they'll be participating in a new league.
But as far as the outlook for the upcoming season for Cumberland High, it will still be the same old goals.
“We just want to win as many games as possible and have some fun,” said first-year coach Matt Smalley. “We are just going to take it one game at a time and hopefully at the end of the season we'll be playing on championship day.”

PC names Ed Cooley new basketball coach

March 22, 2011

PROVIDENCE – There was only one candidate Providence College officials had its sights set on to become the school’s next basketball coach. Apparently Ed Cooley felt that warm embrace to the point that the Providence native is ready to take on the challenge of reversing the Friars’ fortunes.
Tuesday saw Providence officially sign off on the 41-year-old Cooley as the Friars’ new coach. Terms of the deal were not announced, though it’s not too far-fetched to think Cooley received something comparable, in terms of length and compensation, to the package Keno Davis was awarded three years ago.

What are the expectations for PC athletics?

March 21, 2011

On the same day Providence College parted company with Keno Davis, athletic director Bob Driscoll spelled out very succinctly the expectations he has for the Friar basketball program.
“It encompasses three different things. One, I want our student-athletes to represent the college and athletic department with dignity and class, both on and off the court,” was how Driscoll began. “I want my student-athletes to graduate from Providence College and I want to compete for a NCAA Tournament berth on an annual basis. Those are the standards by which I evaluate.”

Pretak, Davis cop individual titles at St. Pat's 5K

March 19, 2011

PROVIDENCE — After battling a stiff headwind for the first mile of the St. Pat’s 5K, Stephen Pretak knew his goal of running close to 15 minutes would not happen Saturday morning.
But the less-than-favorable conditions in the Providence race didn’t stop him from breaking the tape a winner.
The 26-year-old Connecticut native captured the final stage of the inaugural Tour de Patrick, finishing the out-and-back course with a time of 15:31.7. Pretak held off defending titlist Eric Lonergan of North Kingstown, who claimed the runner-up spot at 15:35.4.

Here we go again: MSC to face Hawks for state title

March 15, 2011

WOONSOCKET — For the back half of the past decade, Mount St. Charles vs. Bishop Hendricken in the Division I championship series has been an epic showdown that’s been well worth the price of admission.
Who couldn’t forget the 2007 series that saw the Hawks win in three games and squeak out a 1-0 triumph in the rubber game? Or the ’09 classic that saw the Mounties sweep the series with an overtime victory in Game 1, followed by a heart-pounding, triple-overtime win in Game 2?
