Canavan finds midseason form early as Clippers roll to opening victory

December 16, 2014

CUMBERLAND — Junior tri-captain Kayleigh Canavan expected to swim rather well in Cumberland High’s Division I season opener against Smithfield on Tuesday afternoon, but what she accomplished, frankly, threw her for a loop.

Canavan not only manufactured two of her best times ever while capturing the 200-yard individual medley and 100-yard breaststroke, but she also mustered a superb 50 breaststroke leg in the 200 medley relay to pace her Clippers to an easier-than-expected 55-38 triumph over the Sentinels at the Aquatic Center.

Boys' basketball: Lincoln’s big finish overcomes NS

December 15, 2014

NORTH SMITHFIELD — After playing horribly at the tail end of the initial half and the first part of the second, Lincoln High manufactured an 19-3 flurry over the final 7:29 to edge North Smithfield, 49-45, in a R.I. Injury Fund opener on Monday night.

Thanks to senior tri-captain Devon Deragon’s pretty fast-break lay-in at that juncture of the game, the Northmen seemed destined to reign with a 42-30 cushion. But the Lions took advantage of several miscues by the hosts to move to 1-0.
