November 17, 2010

CENTRAL FALLS — How Rhea Levesque came to the conclusion she needed to lose some excess pounds, she admitted, adds up to a rather humorous story.
In early October 1991, her daughter, Yvette, called and asked her to pick up her 10-year-old twin sons, Nick and Neil St. Jean, from Nathanael Greene Elementary School on Smithfield Avenue. Yvette explained she and then-husband Kenny had tickets to a Boston Red Sox game, and they wanted to get a jumpstart on the trek to Fenway Park.
Naturally, Levesque acquiesced, as she and her husband Norman adored the Sox.

Alyssa McCoart and Nicole Silva play softball in arguably the toughest division in Rhode Island – the Division I-North circuit – but after next spring, the competition’s going to get a whole lot tougher for these local senior standouts.
That’s because the Lincoln High first baseman/pitcher and Mount St. Charles Academy third baseman, who are very good friends who have known each other since the eighth grade, will be taking their talents to the Division I collegiate level, and they made that official last week by signing National Letters of Intent to their respective schools.

November 13, 2010

CENTRAL FALLS --- It was of North Smithfield High head coach Wes Pugh-Pennington's volition to treat his Division IV showdown against Central Falls High on Friday night as a road playoff game.
“Our plan was to keep it simple,” he stated. “We knew it was their Homecoming, so we wanted to use this as preparation for the playoffs. We knew we'd see a tough C.F. Team come in and play hard, so we wanted to run the ball, mix it up and gain some yardage. But we also wanted to prove that we're North Smithfield, we're no fluke, and that we come to play football.”
