Anderson confident power surge will come

May 10, 2011

PAWTUCKET — Nobody understands Lars Anderson’s homerless quandary more than Anderson himself. He knows that first-base prospects aren’t supposed to be stuck on zero home runs nearly five weeks into the season.
Right now, Anderson is going through a severe power drought, something that even has the cerebral sort worried. The facts do not lie, as Anderson entered Tuesday having yet to go deep in 30 games, spanning 125 at-bats.

Cumberland hands Chariho its first loss of season

May 10, 2011

CUMBERLAND --- An undefeated team, one of the state’s best pitchers, and some chilly weather were unable to cool off red-hot Cumberland High on Tuesday afternoon.
The Clippers used a four-run rally in the bottom of the second inning and a strong outing from ace pitcher Bethany Paul to knock Chariho High from the unbeaten ranks and grab a 7-2 triumph in their Division I crossover showdown at Tucker Field.
The Chargers came into the game with a 9-0 mark that saw them outscore their opponents by a 71-22 margin, but bused out of Cumberland with a one-sided loss.

Cumberland boys repeat as Northern track champs

May 9, 2011

GLOCESTER – Jalen Evans has already mastered the 100- and 200-meter dashes this spring, posting some of the state’s fastest times in the two events.
You might as well add the 400 to that list.
The Woonsocket High sophomore showed his versatility and his overall talent for the longer sprint with an impressive victory at Monday’s Northern Division Championship, held at Ponaganset. Competing in the event individually for the first time, Evans passed Cumberland senior Andrew Baglini with 40 meters remaining to break the tape in a near-school mark of 51.6 seconds.

Karl Allaire looks back on pro baseball career

May 8, 2011

WOONSOCKET – No regrets. No bitterness. No remorse.
Pride and a sense of accomplishment can remain intact even if the ultimate goal is never reached. No matter if he didn’t reach the sport’s ultimate holy grail after toiling for nine years in the minor leagues. Karl Allaire does not have a sense that something is missing, that somehow his career should have “incomplete” rubberstamped on it because he never reached the majors. The Woonsocket native can look back in earnest and take comfort that he put his best foot forward, that he gave it his best shot.

Locals shine at Schomp meet

May 7, 2011

WOOD RIVER JUNCTION – It was a day of reckoning for local athletes at the Schomp Invitational, held Saturday at Chariho Regional High School.
The Woonsocket duo of Jalen Evans and Jessie Charette placed in multiple events, Evans finishing first in the 100-meter dash (11.40 seconds) while Charette was tops in the triple jump (44 feet, 1 inch). Ponaganset’s Luke Jaffa leaped a meet-best 12-8 to cop the pole vault as the Chieftains captured the boys’ team title with 55 points.

Woonsocket jolts Johnston

May 6, 2011

WOONSOCKET –Facing unbeaten Johnston High on Friday, Woonsocket coach John Marsella couldn’t have asked for a better effort from his squad on a windy afternoon at Barry Field.
The Villa Novans had timely hitting, a strong outing from lefthander Brandon Perrico and some top-notch defensive plays.
They even had a controversial, game-ending double play go their way.
All those positives added up to a big win for Woonsocket as it handed its Division II-North rival its first loss of the season with a 5-4 victory.

Mounties top Saints, 5-2

May 5, 2011

WOONSOCKET --- Winning close games hasn’t been a strong point for Mount St. Charles Academy this year, but on Thursday afternoon, the Mounties found a way to take a tight battle with St. Raphael Academy.
The Mounties broke a 2-2 tie with three runs in the bottom of the sixth inning and received a strong outing from senior pitcher Collins Uttermann to down the Saints, 5-2, in their Division I-North meeting.
The victory was a much-needed one for the host Mounties, who raised their record to 5-7 and came into the contest with losses in four of their last six games.

Lincoln lacrosse star has 75 goals this season!

May 4, 2011

LINCOLN --– Lacrosse is a game where goals are often scored in large numbers and multiple tallies by any one individual is not uncommon.
But for Lincoln High junior Jillian DeSimone this spring, it just may be bordering on the ridiculous.
DeSimone has averaged more than eight goals per outing in nine league games for the Lions in Division II. On Wednesday, it was status quo for the high-scoring attack as she netted 10 scores – all coming in the first half – to lift the unbeaten Lions to a rather routine 22-13 decision over North Providence at Ferguson Field.

MSC volleyballers improve to 9-1 on season

May 4, 2011

WOONSOCKET --- Mount St. Charles Academy turned in its worst performance of the year on Wednesday night, but luckily for the Mounties, they didn’t pay for it in the win column.
East Providence High, which is fielding one of its youngest teams in recent memory, did its best to take advantage of the Mounties’ poor play and bus out of Woonsocket with an upset win. But the Mounties did just enough to claim this Division I matchup by a 3-1 score.

Hendricken hands Lincoln another crossover loss

May 3, 2011

LINCOLN — Before a brutal, four-game stretch of crossover games, Lincoln High was sitting nicely atop the Division I-North standings with an unbeaten 8-0 mark.
It’s a little different now.
Facing some of the upper-echelon of squads from I-South and I-Central over the last week, the Lions suffered their third setback in the last four games Tuesday afternoon with a 5-1 loss to Bishop Hendricken at Chet Nichols Field. The Hawks belted out 11 hits and had a quality start from lefty Tim Pannone to improve to 9-2 for the spring.
