Fans lacking at WHS boys' games

January 21, 2011

When it comes to Woonsocket High’s boys basketball team, the old axiom of everyone loves a winner comes to mind. The flip side, as revealed this winter, is that very few people are willing to make the trip through snow and ice on a school night to watch this year’s 1-8 team play its home games.

Townies too much for Villa Novans

January 19, 2011

Familiarity in wrestling means fewer secrets left to discover

January 16, 2011

An interesting aspect of Rhode Island high school wrestling is the traditional powers typically avoid one another until the final month of the dual-meet season, choosing to compete in out-of-state tournaments in December and January before taking each other on during February.
In wrestling, familiarity isn’t a good thing. Nobody likes to tip their hand before the pot gets big enough to mean something.
