PAWTUCKET â€” Itâ€™s a long journey from early September to late November for most football teams. Very few have covered as much distance as the 2010 St. Raphael Academy football team.
The Saints, who dropped down from Division I this year, opened their Division II-B season with a 37-0 loss to Tolman that had been a long time in the making for the Tigers, who were on a mission that night. Two weeks later, the Saints dropped a 16-0 decision to Woonsocket and seemed dead in the water.
LINCOLN â€” With the first public unveiling of the edifice to be called only â€śThe Center,â€ť Town Administrator T. Joseph Almond and State Rep. Mary Ann Shallcross Smith called Saturday morning a glorious moment for Lincoln.
It was easy to tell by the glow in the eyes of 89-year-old Gladys McKee that she heartily agreed.
McKee, a former Cumberland resident who now calls Lincoln home, relaxed in the main lobby of the state-of-the-art, 11,000 square-foot facility â€” following a ceremony attracting perhaps 200 â€“ and reveled in its beauty.
