15th-seeded N.P. shocks Tolman softball team

June 2, 2011

PAWTUCKET — Division II-East champions. A division-leading 13 runs per game. One of three teams to lead the league with 14 regular-season victories.
A stunning first-round exit in the Division II playoffs.
These are the four things this season’s Tolman High team will be remembered for doing. And while the first three are incredible accomplishments, the fourth was a cruel, disappointing way to end a sensational spring — one that had the promise of playing for a state title next week at Rhode Island College.

May 31, 2011

CRANSTON — Wearing pink shirts to signify Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Cumberland High stood out on the golf course.
By the time the first round of the RIIL Golf State Tournament was finished Tuesday afternoon at a sun-drenched Cranston Country Club, the Clippers also stood out on the leaderboard.
Jamison Randall tied medalist honors, firing an even-par 71. Behind the talented senior, the rest of the Clippers didn’t do so badly either. Senior teammates Mike Ray and Jack Andrade each carded a 79 and sophomore Brendan Guerin posted an 83.

Woonsocket baseball team has come of age

May 30, 2011

WOONSOCKET – It was the first game of the season – a loss to Johnston -- when Woonsocket High baseball coach John Marsella knew he had a team that could do some damage in Division II.
“We lost to Johnston 2-1 in our opener,” Marsella was saying on Monday. “Everyone had told me before the season that Johnston was the class of the division. After that game, we knew we could play with them. That gave confidence to everyone on the team.”

Judy Gordon earns national wrestling honor

May 30, 2011

CUMBERLAND – Steve Gordon has been coaching wrestling at Cumberland High for 42 years.
He has seen a lot of people come and go during his more than four-decade career. But every long, wintry season, he knows one face will always be there and volunteering countless hours to add to the success of his program. It’s a person that has missed fewer matches than the fingers on your hand, his wife Judy Gordon.

May 30, 2011

PAWTUCKET – There’s always excitement in the air whenever a big-name player ventures to the minor leagues for a rehab assignment. For Rich Sauveur, it will simply be another day at the office when John Lackey makes his first and only rehab appearance for the PawSox Tuesday night.

PawSox lose 13-inning marathon

Gobewole, Vazquez win titles at Hendricken Invitational

May 29, 2011

WARWICK – A lingering shoulder problem, one that bothered him during a still successful indoor campaign, has limited the number of meets for Freddy Gobewole this spring.
But it hasn’t stopped him from winning.
The Shea High senior ran the fastest time in the state in the 100-meter dash on Saturday, winning the individual title at the annual Hendricken Invitational with a time of 10.5 seconds. Gobewole’s performance, where he defeated junior Josh Gilkenson of Moses Brown by a tenth of a second, comes just a week before the state championships at Brown Stadium.

Tolman baseball season comes to an end

May 29, 2011

WAKEFIELD – Tolman starting pitcher Chris Messier issued just one walk in Saturday’s Region 3 finale of the Division II double-elimination tournament vs. The Prout School. Unfortunately for the sixth-seeded Tigers, that free pass wound up being the deciding factor in a 4-3 loss to the No. 3 Crusaders, thus ending the season for Theo Murray’s crew.
