LINCOLN – It’s true: Over the last eight years, Davies Tech compiled a dismal overall league record of 10 wins and 120 losses.
That’s a winning percentage of .077. If you follow baseball, think of that as a batting average.

But none of that has bothered second-year head coach Bill Meekins, who truly believes his Patriots are on the upswing. He had proof on Thursday night after his club shelled Ponaganset, 63-47, in a Division III-North clash at Gaskin Alumni Hall.

With the triumph, Davies improved to a stellar 3-1 overall and 2-1 in league action. That’s not the kind of success Davies is accustomed to, though the architect didn’t care.
