High school baseball | Players, coaches forced to get creative with indoor workouts

April 1, 2015

Paul Murphy had spent over a quarter-century as a Cumberland High baseball coach, the last 17 at the helm, and he admits he’s never seen a winter quite like this one.

Now in his first “spring” as Woonsocket High’s varsity mentor, Murphy hasn’t had the opportunity to conduct practice sessions at his new Renaud Field home, the reason being most of the infield dirt and outfield grass remains blanketed with some of the record-breaking snow accumulations inundating the state the past two-plus months.

College Basketball Round Up- Sweet 16 Edition

March 30, 2015

Midwest Region

The Midwest Regional final was held at Quickens Loan Arena this year. The undefeated Kentucky Wildcats came in as heavy favorites to move on to the Final Four in Indianapolis. That didn’t stop Daxter Miles of West Virginia to proclaim that Kentucky will be 36-1 after the two teams meet Thursday night. That certainly did not happen. The Wildcats completely overwhelmed the Mountaineers and doubled them up 78-39. In the early game, Notre Dame topped Wichita State 81-70. This marked the first time the Irish have reached the Elite 8 since 1979.

Lincoln High Unified Sports | TEAMWORK: Jarest honored as coach of year by athletic administrators

March 23, 2015


LINCOLN — It was virtually a last-minute decision to volunteer to coach Lincoln High's Unified Volleyball and Basketball teams, but Renee Jarest took that leap at the beginning of the 2013-14 school year.
