PROVIDENCE â Cumberland High senior co-captain Andrew Bauer took a specific but incredibly-optimistic plan into these R.I. Boys Swimming Championships on Monday night.
It was his lofty goal to break his own school mark in the 200-yard freestyle, then set new CHS marks at the 500 distance, not to mention the 50 and 100 freestyles.
EXETER â It was a mighty difficult end to Tolman High's post-season hopes. The Tigers surrendered a game-high 26 points to Exeter/West Greenwich standout Jack Livsey, who notched 22 in the final and overtime stanzas, and the Scarlet Knights eked out an 87-84 win in a R.I. Division II preliminary playoff on Monday.
