February 16, 2015

BRISTOL – Cumberland High senior standout Jack Bauer came ever-so-close to capturing a pair of individual events at the R.I. Division I Boys' Swimming Championships on Monday afternoon, but had to settle for one.

February 16, 2015

WOONSOCKET — After playing superbly in a 40-33 triumph at Burrillville on Friday night, Mount St. Charles just couldn't find the right answers as the Broncos rolled to a 56-39 Division III-North victory on Monday night.

The Lions jumped out to a 28-19 advantage at the break and withstood a furious second-half comeback to record their third win this season.

GIRL OF SUMMER: Nancy Belisle passes away, courage and devotion was an inspiration

February 14, 2015

 

Nancy Belisle touched a lot of lives – rivaling as many sporting events she attended throughout the years.

Married to a husband who spent his winters coaching hockey and his springs and summers on the baseball circuit, and a mother to four boys who were also heavily involved in youth and interscholastic sports, Nancy Belisle exemplified devotion. If there was a game involving a family member, the odds were pretty good that she would be in the stands and cheering them on to victory.

Bromley: 'Everyone does it' not an excuse for Little League cheating scandal

February 13, 2015


“Everyone cheats, so why pick on this team?”
 
This was the question, more or less, from the lineup of apologists who rose out of their rhetorical dugouts this week to defend the Jackie Robinson West team, after Little League Baseball announced the reigning U.S. champions were being stripped of that and every other honorific bestowed upon them during the 2014 season.

February 12, 2015

Providence College basketball | McGair: Health should always come first for Ed Cooley

February 12, 2015

PROVIDENCE – The most valuable lesson in the aftermath of Ed Cooley’s health scare is that sometimes less is more.

All too often, we take our health for granted and then something unforeseen happens that challenges it. In the blink of an eye, we go from feeling bulletproof and invulnerable to a fragile place that also doubles as a wakeup call. We all want to live a quality life. It’s just ironic that our health seems to take on a greater sense of urgency only after we brush up against a scary situation.
