PAWTUCKET â€” When perennial Division II contender Shea High was promoted to Division I for the 2010 season, the Raiders were immediately tabbed as state championship contenders by several rival coaches.
Shea lived up to the hype over the regular season, completing a 12-1-5 campaign in Division I-North on Thursday with a 7-0 romp over winless East Providence.
The match provided a chance for coach Pierre Ridore to play his entire roster, a deserving reward for a team that responded to the challenge of Division I soccer by working together for a common goal.
As he watched his team apply the finishing touches to consecutive Division II titles last June, Mount St. Charles head baseball coach Tom Seaver started to prepare for the impending direction the program figured to be heading in.
Based on the amount of success the Mounties had achieved during the now completed four-year alignment period, a bump up to Division I seemed certain.
The two championships stand out, but so too does the 62-10 regular season league record Seaverâ€™s MSC squad has compiled.
PAWTUCKET â€” An incumbent City Councilor who won his seat two years ago from a veteran councilor by positioning himself as being more representative of District 5 is facing a challenge from someone who is also promising to be the voice of the constituents.
