Lincoln's Saine signs with Boston College football team

February 5, 2014

LINCOLN –National Signing Day 2014 in college football circles is well underway this morning and we have some news concerning a local prospect to pass along.

Oseh-Lie Saine, a 2013 graduate of Lincoln High School, has officially joined the Boston College football team. The news was announced via Twitter under @BCFootballNews: “Osei-Lie Saine joins the BC football team! The DL earned all-Rhode Island 1st-team honors at Lincoln HS.”

BC lists Saine as a defensive end who measures out at 6-foot-4, 265 pounds. He played a post-graduate year at Worcester Academy this past autumn.

Friars can’t dig out from Red Storm, lose 86-76

February 4, 2014

PROVIDENCE – The beauty of this new Big East arrangement is that teams are guaranteed two regular season meetings.

If you stub your toe in the first meeting, fear not. There’s a rematch on the docket.

Tuesday night at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center had that “nice to see you again” ring to it. Providence and St. John’s had already staged one hardwood confrontation with the Friars squeezing out a one-point win in double overtime. That game took place last month at Carnesecca Arena.

Town budget battle could threaten spring sports in North Smithfield

February 3, 2014

NORTH SMITHFIELD – Long before Mike Cicerone began his senior year at North Smithfield High, he had thought out his plan for it.

Already the starting quarterback, he would be the Class of 2014 President, would play a key role on the varsity basketball team that last winter clinched the R.I. Division II title with a perfect 24-0 record and – come springtime, just weeks before Graduation Day – would be a starter for head coach Jon Leddy’s baseball squad.

Merger complete, Woonsocket Little League sets sail for brave new world

February 1, 2014

WOONSOCKET --- Like everyone else, Lisa Godfrin has not been a big fan of the bitter cold temperatures and occasional snow that have made January a frigid month to bear.

And like everyone else, she would love nothing more than to see much warmer weather, green grass, birds chirping, and a chance to enjoy the outdoors once again.

But Godfrin has an extra reason as to why she’s counting down the days until spring – the start of baseball season for the unified Woonsocket Little League.

Rodriguez powers Shea past Hope for 30-21 win

January 31, 2014

WARWICK – Lincoln didn’t take the ice for its Division II crossover affair with Pilgrim on Friday night bitter from its first loss of the season, a 2-1 defeat to undefeated longtime rival Cumberland two nights earlier that snapped the Lions’ 35-game unbeaten streak.
Judging by the way the Lions played, you would have thought they had big chips on their shoulders.

The Lions scored six times in the final nine minutes of the first period and never let their foot off the accelerator as they trounced the one-win Patriots, 11-2, in a crossover contest at Thayer Arena.

MSC girls track eyes third straight class title

January 30, 2014

WOONSOCKET – Late Monday night, the Mount St. Charles girls’ indoor squad captured for the second straight winter the Dwyer Division crown, courtesy of 92 points, 14 more than runner-up Narragansett High.

It did so with only two event victories, with junior quad-captain Angela Dansereau grabbing the lone individual title in the 55-meter hurdles (9.42) at the Providence Career & Technical Academy field house.

McGair: PC Friars doing their best to tune out hype

January 29, 2014

Last Saturday at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center was the first significant clue.

Ed Cooley had just watched his Providence College squad push aside Xavier for its fifth straight Big East victory. As he delivered his postgame soliloquy inside a crowded media room – one that also contained administrators and adoring well-wishers – the head coach took the opportunity to give Bryce Cotton with what he feels are this valuable senior’s just desserts.

“He is so undervalued by the national people, but he’s definitely not undervalued in this room,” Cooley rhapsodized.

Davies girls hang tough in loss to Central

January 28, 2014

LINCOLN — Davies took a ton of shots – 93 of them – on Tuesday night in its Division III crossover encounter against Central at the Patriots’ Alumni Hall.

Unfortunately for the Patriots, they struggled to find their shot from start to finish and hit just 12 of their attempts. But despite shooting a shade under 13 percent, as well as having a high number of turnovers and some struggles from the free-throw line, the Patriots still found themselves in a battle with the Knights.

Cumberland's second-half play keys win over Lincoln

January 27, 2014

LINCOLN — Cumberland High couldn’t continue to allow two of Lincoln High’s better players to feel comfortable on the offensive end.
That much was clear to Clippers assistant coach Collin Geiselman through the first half of Monday’s Division II-North clash at The Lions’ Den. One look at the stat sheet was enough to send a strong message to his troops: stop giving Lincoln’s Alec Cronan and Luke Kelly the freedom to either shoot from the outside or drive to the rim.

Co-op issues dominate PCOA meeting

January 27, 2014

PROVIDENCE — The issue of cooperative teams in the Rhode Island Interscholastic League has long been a source of concern. It’s also a topic that features far too much gray area, from schools finding creative ways and/or loopholes to save existing co-op programs, to establishing new ones under the guise of promoting interscholastic athletics.
