January 11, 2015

KINGSTON – Sometimes you just have to be satisfied with what you're able to accomplish on any given day.

That seemed to be the sentiment of most of the more heralded aquawomen participating in the annual Bay View Invitational Girls Championships at the University of Rhode Island's Tootell Natatorium on Sunday afternoon.

The particular cases in point: Juniors Mollie Westrick of Lincoln High, Kayleigh Canavan of Cumberland and Liz Gross of Mount St. Charles.

Cumberland/Lincoln – Mount Girls' Hockey | Lions look sharp in 5-3 triumph over Mounties

January 10, 2015


WOONSOCKET -- To head coach Tom Pereira, something was clearly missing in the first seven games of the season for the Lincoln/Cumberland Co-op team.

That “someone” was prized transfer Samantha Wellington, who made her season debut Friday against ironically her former club, Mount St. Charles. Though the sophomore did not create a ripple on the scorer’s sheet, she impacted the game in other areas in helping the Lions top the Mounties, 5-3, at Adelard Arena.

January 10, 2015


PROVIDENCE – As Providence’s win over Butler earlier in the week illustrated, dishing out minutes is no exact science.

Coaches like Ed Cooley have to consider every factor when concocting a game plan for that day’s opposition. The toughest decisions don’t always boil down to playing zone or man-to-man on defense. There is one consideration that carries prime importance: Ultimately, you play the guys who provide the best chance to win.

Lincoln Swimming | Hungry for a bite at a state title, Lady Lions cruise past Cranston East

January 9, 2015


LINCOLN  –  It’s still early in the Division II dual-meet slate, so Lincoln High senior tri-captain Nicole Moneghan isn’t as concerned with her times as she was during her underclassmen years.

Instead, as she’s building toward what she hopes is a premier individual showing at the Rhode Island State Championships in late February, she’s concentrating more on the development of some of the Lions’ younger aquawomen.

The simplistic reason: Moneghan wants to see her school claim a long-awaited state crown.
