New London's Dunn proves too much for St. Raphael

January 8, 2012

WARWICK — As St. Raphael Academy found out on Saturday night, Kris Dunn is not an easy cover.
The New London (Ct.) High senior and Providence College-bound product put on quite the show at a jam-packed CCRI-Warwick field house, tossing in a game-high 32 points in his team’s 66-55 win over the Saints. Dunn’s ability to penetrate proved to be too much for SRA to handle despite the myriad of different looks that veteran head coach Tom “Saar” Sorrentine attempted to throw at the multi-talented point guard.

HOCKEY ROUNDUP: Tolman falls to Mount Hope

January 7, 2012

PAWTUCKET --- Mount Hope, thanks to a pair of second-period goals by Nick Salzano, leapfrogged over Tolman and into second place in the Division III standings on Friday night by posting a 4-2 victory at Lynch Arena.
The Tigers, who only dressed 11 players, two of them goaltenders, fell to 5-3. The Huskies are 6-1 and trail the unbeaten Johnston/North Providence co-op team in the standings.
Jared Pedro and Kevin Tracey scored goals for the Tigers, both assisted by Kody Casavant. The Tigers were tied at 1-1 with the Huskies at the end of a period of play, but trailed 3-2 after two periods.

Shea hands Rogers first loss of season

January 6, 2012

PAWTUCKET – There’s a reason why Jordy Brito is the undisputed leader of Shea High. The senior is cool under pressure. More importantly, the fast-as-lightning guard is not one to run for cover with the game on the line.

Patriots' O'Brien heading into angry Lions' Den

January 6, 2012

Bill O’Brien could be walking into a no-win situation as the next head football coach at Penn State. While the current Patriots’ offensive coordinator may seem like a solid choice on the surface, the news of his selection hit hard with Penn State alumni on Friday.
Former Penn State linebacker LaVar Arrington represented the thoughts of many ex-players upon hearing the news that an “outsider” would be the next head coach.

Velez, Tolman hoopsters shake off Lincoln, 58-45

January 5, 2012

PAWTUCKET — If Tolman High ever fits the pieces together, the Tigers could be a tough out in the Division II playoffs.
It is coach Mike Kayata’s job to develop his players into a cohesive unit over the next seven weeks, trying to get the most out of a roster that contains an explosive scoring guard in Juan Velez, a 6-foot-7 junior center named Jon Percy who is a sleeping giant, and several role players who might hold the key to this team’s ultimate outcome.

Web only: Cooley says thanks but no thanks to Boeheim's praise

January 5, 2012

PROVIDENCE – Count Jim Boeheim as a fan of the turnaround act Ed Cooley is trying to perform at Providence College.
While receiving praise from the dean of Big East coaches is a sign that Cooley’s work is not going unnoticed around the league, the PC head coach was in no mood to talk about moral victories following his team’s third straight loss, the latest a 87-73 setback to top-ranked Syracuse Wednesday night at The Dunk.

SRA hoopsters eye showdown vs. New London

January 4, 2012

PAWTUCKET — Charles Correa admits that Saturday, Jan. 7 has been in his sights the moment he first laid eyes on St. Raphael’s schedule.
As the date that’s been circled in red and ingrained in his mind draws near, Correa’s competitive fire only intensifies. Come Saturday night at CCRI-Warwick, the 5-foot-8 junior will draw the assignment of shadowing New London (Conn.) High School senior and Providence College-bound Kris Dunn.

Correa saves the day for Saints

January 4, 2012

PAWTUCKET — When St. Raphael Academy’s senior forward, Cesar Mejia, picked up his fourth personal foul early in the second half of Tuesday night’s Division I game with Cranston East, point guard Charles Correa had a bad thought.
“I thought we were in trouble without Cesar,” Correa admitted.
Then Correa, arguably the best high school player in Rhode Island, had another thought.

Mounties ice Cathedral at Fenway Park

January 2, 2012

BOSTON --- After watching his father and younger brother make news on the baseball diamond last summer with the New England champion Cumberland American Little League all-star team, Brian Belisle got an opportunity to steal the show on one of baseball’s most historic ballfields on Monday night.
But Belisle did so with a hockey stick, not a bat and glove, with his Mount St. Charles Academy teammates at Fenway Park in their “Frozen Fenway 2012” duel against Cathedral High of Springfield, Mass., and the junior center came through with the best game of his young high school career.

Many memorable moments in 2011

January 1, 2012

It’s two days into 2012. The past year is now a distance memory. Time sure does fly. It seems like just a short time ago that the winter season was wrapping up, one that included an extraordinary performance by the Tolman High boys’ basketball team in the Division II quarterfinals. The summer, as it always does, went by quickly. But not before a group of young 12-year-old kids from the Cumberland American earned their way to Williamsport, Pa., for the Little League World Series.
There have certainly been other events and athletes that have made the last 365 days a memorable one.
