Novans chase Hendricken track dynasty

March 25, 2011

The hockey season concluded less than a week ago and to no one's surprise it was Mount St. Charles that was celebrating on the ice with another state championship.

In boys' swimming, Bishop Hendricken has won every team title since 1989-90, a total of 22 straight crowns.

Unified Basketball comes to Ponaganset

March 24, 2011

GLOCESTER — Beth Keeling has had a strong involvement in Ponaganset High athletics, particularly over the last decade.
Keeling is the school’s “unofficial” photographer at various sporting events and also has been an avid supporter, including following the stellar football and track & field careers of her three sons, Mike, Jacob and Nick.

PC names Ed Cooley new basketball coach

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.
