Vazquez, Crawley track down state championships

June 3, 2012

PROVIDENCE — 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.

Boucher's homer powers Woonsocket past Tolman

June 3, 2012

PAWTUCKET — Woonsocket High’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 – one that hit the top of the fence at Slater Park’s Al Bailey Field before bouncing over – proved to be the deciding factor in the seventh-seeded Villa Novans’ 1-0 upset victory against the Tigers, the No. 2 in the Division II double-elimination tournament.

Mount seniors reach summit

June 3, 2012

WOONSOCKET — A runner turning onto Mount St. Charles Avenue encounters a hill that only gets steeper, more challenging the farther the runner travels up it. It is only when the runner crests the top near Mount St. Charles Academy that the reward, a wide-ranging view of the land around the school, can be claimed.
A similar challenge faced the 196 members of the Class of 2012 graduating from Mount on Sunday when they began their studies at the private high school operated by the Brothers of the Sacred Heart.

June 2, 2012

PAWTUCKET — Sixteen-year-old Ryan Gomes patiently points out the parts of a guitar to 6-year-old Chris Brunetti, while the younger boy balances an instrument that is almost bigger than he is on his lap. “What's this?” asks Gomes, pointing to the neck of the guitar. “What are these?” he asks next, fingering the frets and strumming a few chords. Brunetti supplies the correct answers, smiling back at Gomes with obvious pride.

Bats go silent for Tolman '9' in playoff loss to Westerly

June 1, 2012

PAWTUCKET — Perhaps three minutes after Tolman High had suffered a 3-1 loss to Westerly at Ted McConnon Memorial Field on Friday afternoon, skipper Theo Murray jogged out to left field where his players, as is the norm, already had congregated.
He spoke with them for another five or six minutes, then followed his somewhat-dejected Tigers back to their third-base dugout.
“I just told the kids that our pitcher did his job, and our defense did its job,” Murray stated matter-of-factly. “I also said that our bats, unfortunately, let us down.”
