PROVIDENCE â€” Lincoln Highâ€™s perfect season came to an end at the hands of â€¦ a perfect season.
In Saturdayâ€™s clash between two unbeaten teams trying to etch their names into the Rhode Island Interscholastic League history books, it was Tiverton that emerged with an unblemished record â€” and the Division II state championship.
A late second-half comeback fell short for the Lions, who watched the Tigers celebrate a 12-8 victory at Rhode Island College to cap a 17-0 campaign.
EAST PROVIDENCE â€” At its meeting of May 24, the East Providence School Committee passed Phase I of the reorganization plan for the cityâ€™s elementary, middle and high schools. The plan, which includes the implementation of full-day kindergarten in September and the addition of teaching staff, also eliminates several positions within the district.
PAWTUCKET â€“ As is tradition after these commencement exercises, the 10 graduates of Bishop Keough Regional High School recessed out of St. Maria Goretti Church on Friday evening and congregated in the front courtyard.
The seniors formed a circle, then lofted their pale blue caps skyward and let out a few hoots and hollers, those to celebrate their four years of dedication and devotion to academia and extracurricular activities.
A moment later, Mary E. Gingras, who hails from Lincoln, seemed a bit dazed by the atmosphere.
