What does new Brown A.D. mean for Sorrentine?

April 5, 2012

PROVIDENCE — New Brown University athletic director Jack Hayes had just wrapped up his short introductory speech when an inquiring mind asked how he plans to address a personnel matter that figures to be high up on his to-do list.
“You want the job?” replied a smiling Hayes upon being broached about offering some insight surrounding the school’s men’s basketball head coaching position, a spot currently operating on an interim basis under the guiding hand of Pawtucket native T.J. Sorrentine.

Lincoln lacrosse team falls to Mount St. Charles

April 5, 2012

WOONSOCKET — Before Mount St. Charles Academy faced Lincoln High in a Division II-North battle on Thursday afternoon, head coach Doug Allen asked his squad to be aggressive from the start, especially offensively, to set the tone.
It was something the Mounties had failed to do in a 9-7 loss to Providence Country Day only 48 hours earlier.
“We fell behind, 3-0, right away, and we had to work hard to battle back,” Allen stated. “We have a fast-break, running kind of team, and when we get a lead and we unleash the horses, we’re all set. If we don’t, then we’re usually in for a tough game.”

PAWTUCKET – Speaking with a straight face, Jose Iglesias called his spring training experience under the direction of new Boston manager Bobby Valentine “awesome.” Expounding further, the shortstop prospect provided evidence designed to illustrate the change in culture surrounding the way the Red Sox conduct business between the white lines.

April 3, 2012

PAWTUCKET – Arnie Beyeler has been one of the few baseball constants in Jose Iglesias’ life since the Cuban defector joined the Red Sox organization three years ago, so when the second-year Pawtucket Red Sox manager expresses strong desire regarding what he thinks is in store for Iglesias in 2012, it’s best to take notice.

LINCOLN -- It looks like the five scrimmages Mount St. Charles head coach Tom Seaver scheduled during the pre-season has paid dividends.
Then again, one in particular, he stated, was directly responsible for the Mounties’ ability to post a 4-3 Division I-North victory over Lincoln High in both teams’ season opener at Chet Nichols Memorial Field on Monday afternoon.

McGair: H.S. coach expresses optimism regarding PC prospect Ricky Ledo; Friars in good shape in pursuit of JUCO big man Sanchez

April 2, 2012

With the All-American Championship behind him and an appearance in the Jordan Brand Classic on tap for April 14, Ricky Ledo’s days of competing against fellow high schoolers are dwindling to a precious few.
Naturally, the hot button topic surrounding Ledo is whether the acclaimed prospect and Providence native will face eligibility issues in his quest to suit up for Providence College next season. Such concerns largely stem from the number of high schools (a total of four) he’s enrolled at since the fall of 2007, when Ledo attended Bishop Hendricken.

You often hear the expression “what a difference a year makes,” particularly when referencing the turnover rate in high school sports. In the case of the respective boys’ volleyball outfits at Tolman and Mount St. Charles, if the shoe fits, wear it.

Clippers, Lions, Saints reside in ultra competitive Div. I-North; Tigers should contend in Div. II

To say the past two weeks have been hectic for area baseball teams would be like saying there’s no such thing as rush hour traffic in this state. Ever try to squeeze in tryouts followed by roster decisions followed by several scrimmages into a tightly confined window of time? That’s a lot to digest!
Ready or not, like or not, the regular season beckons. Are some skippers wishing they had more time to iron out items of importance like rounding out the pitching staff or settling on a lineup? No doubt, but as those same coaches are already well aware, it’s go time.
