PAWTUCKET â€” As interim athletic director for St. Raphael Academy, Fred Saunders is being called upon to guide the department while the search to replace Bruce Gammell takes place. The void was created following Gammellâ€™s resignation late last month.

CUMBERLAND â€“ Winning another Northern Division title would be nice, but thatâ€™s not the No. 1 priority for head coach Tom Kenwood and his Cumberland High squad this fall.

The last time thatâ€™s been done was the 2005-06 season when the Cumberland placed third behind team champion Bishop Hendricken.
