WARWICK â€“ A lingering shoulder problem, one that bothered him during a still successful indoor campaign, has limited the number of meets for Freddy Gobewole this spring.
But it hasnâ€™t stopped him from winning.
The Shea High senior ran the fastest time in the state in the 100-meter dash on Saturday, winning the individual title at the annual Hendricken Invitational with a time of 10.5 seconds. Gobewoleâ€™s performance, where he defeated junior Josh Gilkenson of Moses Brown by a tenth of a second, comes just a week before the state championships at Brown Stadium.
WAKEFIELD â€“ Tolman starting pitcher Chris Messier issued just one walk in Saturdayâ€™s Region 3 finale of the Division II double-elimination tournament vs. The Prout School. Unfortunately for the sixth-seeded Tigers, that free pass wound up being the deciding factor in a 4-3 loss to the No. 3 Crusaders, thus ending the season for Theo Murrayâ€™s crew.
