Woonsocket continues to scoff at the notion of turning over a new leaf, the latest example coming Friday in a satisfying 48-36 win against Ponaganset at Savaria Gymnasium. The defending state champion Novans improve to 4-1 in Division I-North, 6-2 overall.

Woonsocket high jumper wins winter debut

January 6, 2011

PROVIDENCE – Six months since her shocking win in the high jump at last year’s outdoor state meet, Kaylnn Pitts was back in her element.
The indoor track & field season began in early December but for the Woonsocket High sophomore on Thursday night it was her first time competing in the vertical leap. Although she has been able to long jump and sprint for the Villa Novans, a tender knee suffered during the fall’s volleyball season has kept Pitts away from the high jump area.

Mount girls hockey team off to fast start

January 6, 2011

WOONSOCKET --- Offensively, Mount St. Charles Academy is sixth out of the state’s nine teams in goals scored, and defensively, the Mounties are one of four teams to have surrendered fewer than 10 goals.
But there’s one huge reason why the Mounties are sitting atop the standings with a 5-0 mark and looking like a potent squad in excellent shape to defend their state championship come March.
“I think we have the depth that any team in the league would envy,” offered MSC coach Steve Shea. “I feel like we have depth at every position, which is very nice to have.”

Hartnett, Lajoie: Blackstone Valley Hall of Famers

January 4, 2011

We will have some baseball news to savor this afternoon when the Hall of Fame balloting is revealed to the public. Roberto Alomar and Bert Blyleven are expected to get into the HOF today. Several other players are on the cusp – Jeff Bagwell, Larry Walker, Jack Morris and Tim Raines.
Rafael Palmeiro could make it, too, if the voters forgive him for telling Congress he never did steroids and then flunking a urine test several months later, late in his career, long after he had amassed most of his 569 career home runs.

Hoop coaches will tell you nothing ever comes easy

January 3, 2011

High school basketball coaches don’t have any room to breathe when it comes to game conditions. They share their workplace with spectators. Their instructions to players, or complaints to referees running past them, can often be heard by the fans.

Friars' Brooks left stranded at sea by Red Storm

January 2, 2011

Marshon Brooks was the picture of a frustrated Friar as he stood in the hallway of The Dunk Saturday night. His stat line in a narrow loss to St. John’s – 8-of-14 shooting for 20 points – did little to ease his pain.
Most players would gladly take the numbers like the ones Brooks compiled, bolt quickly out of the gym and pray that nothing gets amended before the final sheet is xeroxed. Not Brooks. The senior knows that if Providence has any shot of being anything more than a mere footnote in Big East play, then he has to deliver high octane performances every time out.
