LINCOLN --- When Keith Jeffrey woke up last Friday morning, he had his sights set on producing an impressive performance later that night in the co-feature of Classic Entertainment & Sports, Inc.â€™s â€śProving Groundsâ€ť card at the Twin River Event Center.
Turns out that Jeffrey was successful in accomplishing that, but he ended up doing so in the main event, the first time in his career that he stepped into the limelight for the nightâ€™s grand finale.
PROVIDENCE -- The drama stemmed not so much if Lincoln High would claim its first-ever state title in fast-pitch softball.
It instead revolved around whether junior phenom Lindsay Mayer would hurl a no-hitter while it doing so.
She didnâ€™t, but that didnâ€™t keep the Lions from a wild celebration after sealing a 4-1 victory over never-say-die Coventry High in the R.I. Division I Tournament championship tilt before a crowd of approximately 300 at Rhode Island College on Saturday afternoon.
