WARWICK â€” It was supposed to be a wild free-for-all, unbeaten Cumberland High battling flawless Bishop Hendricken for bragging rights in the state's top division.
Instead, the Hawks strung together seven straight triumphs between 160 pounds and 106 to sail to a stellar 47-9 dual-meet beatdown of the Clippers at the hosts' gymnasium on Thursday night.
CUMBERLAND â€” Heidi Josephson is well aware her Cumberland High squads have little to no chance to compete for state crowns at the R.I. Interscholastic Swimming Championships, slated for the new Brown University natatorium on Saturday at 2 p.m. (for girls) and Sunday at 1 (boys).
That doesn't mean the veteran coach isn't truly excited about what could happen when the starter's gun sounds for the first event.
NORTH PROVIDENCE --- In a contest full of high energy and emotion, not to mention a chance to earn sole possession of the Division II-North regular-season championship, Cumberland did the unthinkable on Wednesday night and went a full six minutes without producing a point early in the second half of its showdown against North Providence.
The Clippersâ€™ cold spell enabled the host Cougars to erase a two-point deficit and rattle off 14 straight points, and that enabled them to keep Cumberland within an armâ€™s length of them the rest of the way and come away with a hard-fought 66-58 victory.
