WARWICK â€” Dan Rhault knows that in order for a high school baseball talent to get noticed, one has to venture to where college coaches and recruiters gather.
The belief that if youâ€™re good, â€śtheyâ€ť will seek you out no longer applies. Recruiting has become such a cutthroat business that if you snooze, you lose, and if you snooze some more, you just might see your baseball career end at the high school level.
â€śWeâ€™re going to them,â€ť Rhault, a Lincoln native, said matter-of-factly.
PAWTUCKET â€” The location has changed and so has the weekend, but the Memorial 5K Run/Walk for PFC Kyle Joseph Coutu is returning to the area and eager to bring the community back together for a fun-filled day at Slater Park.
The event, which will take place on Sunday, June 3, at 9 a.m., will again pay tribute to Coutu, a 2009 graduate of Tolman High and football and wrestling captain and a U.S. Marine who was killed on Feb. 18, 2010 while supporting combat operations in Afghanistan.
WEST CHESTER, Pa. â€” Itâ€™s been quite the debut for Jad Prachniak, West Chester Universityâ€™s new baseball skipper.
Thanks to the tutelage of the former Lincoln resident, the Golden Rams closed their regular season with a stellar 42-10 slate, captured the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference championship and qualified for the NCAA Division II World Series after winning four straight games in the NCAA Division II Atlantic Regional Tournament.
PAWTUCKET â€” When 18-year-old Amanda Ambers walks across the Tolman High School stage on June 6 to get her diploma, she will have a full cheering section consisting of her mother, sister, brother and three-year-old son.
