PROVIDENCE â€” Central Falls High senior Steve Vazquez and Cumberland junior Trevor Crawley maintained vastly different outlooks about reigning in their respective individual events at Sunday's Rhode Island Interscholastic Outdoor Track and Field Championships.
Vazquez had just captured the high jump crown with a leap of 6 feet, eight inches at Brown Stadium, yet he sat virtually alone on a steel bench, shedding tears, just yards away from the bar that failed him.
PAWTUCKET â€” Woonsocket Highâ€™s answer to grace under fire was one cool customer on Sunday afternoon.
With her team locked in a scoreless duel against Tolman High, senior Kelsey Boucher changed the playoff fate of two teams with one mighty poke. Her solo home run in the sixth inning â€“ one that hit the top of the fence at Slater Parkâ€™s Al Bailey Field before bouncing over â€“ proved to be the deciding factor in the seventh-seeded Villa Novansâ€™ 1-0 upset victory against the Tigers, the No. 2 in the Division II double-elimination tournament.
