St. Raphael edges Scituate, 44-38, stays unbeaten in D-II

February 5, 2014

PAWTUCKET – Based on his court-side demeanor late in his squad’s intense Division II tussle with North stalwart Scituate High on Tuesday night, St. Raphael Academy head coach Fred Saunders seemed both miffed and anxious at his girls’ turnovers and lack of offense.

Once the Saints had clinched a solid 44-38 crossover victory over the Spartans, however, he slowly became more gregarious.

PAWTUCKET – Terry Doyle’s 2013 minor-league season featured as much shuffling as a blackjack dealer.

The 27-year-old Warwick resident spent the first three months with the Pawtucket Red Sox, where he started 11 times and made seven appearances in relief, before getting transferred to Portland on July 5.

Pawtucket's Pedro nets 100th career high-school goal

February 3, 2014

WARWICK – Jared Pedro has traveled a long, sometimes-satisfying, sometimes-stressful road as a “former” hockey player for Tolman High.
He competed as a Tiger varsity team member for three years, but discovered as a junior that – because of the lack of incoming freshmen with ice experience – the decades-old program would fold.

February 1, 2014

PROVIDENCE – Behind junior assistant captain Carol Rodriguez’s double-double, which included 14 points, 11 rebounds and a block, Shea High garnered a somewhat-satisfying 30-21 Division III crossover triumph on Friday to improve to 3-2 in league action and 3-5 overall.

Aiding the aforementioned Rodriguez, Sophomore Tatianna Ramos manufactured another 11 boards and a bucket, while classmate Jackie Teixeira contributed four steals. Junior Astan Coulibaly chipped in four points and eight crucial rebounds, and senior co-captain Lourdes Anariba four points and five thefts.

Lincoln swimmers hang tough with SK

January 30, 2014

LINCOLN — High junior Nicole Moneghan had one desire before she and her teammates faced defending state champion South Kingstown in a Division II dual-meet clash on Thursday afternoon.

“I was hoping we wouldn’t get absolutely crushed,” she admitted. “They have a lot of talented girls over there. We were trying not to worry about what they were doing, but just dive in and swim the best we could.”

As expected, the undefeated Rebels did push their unbeaten streak to 7-0 with a 54-40 victory over the steadfast Lions, but the latter went down battling.

January 30, 2014

WOONSOCKET — For the first time in a long while, Cumberland High actually defeated archrival Lincoln.

It happened on Wednesday night at Adelard Arena, with the still-undefeated Clippers edging the previously-unbeaten Lions, 2-1, in a Division II-North showdown.

Lincoln, however, knotted it at 1-1 when senior Mike Enos converted Aaron Fiske’s feed at 9:44.

Tolman's appeal to repel football playoff ban denied

PAWTUCKET – There were concerns, to be sure. There always are whenever you’re dealing with a tense situation akin to the high school football episode that has resulted in the reclassification of expectations for Tolman in 2014.

PAWTUCKET – There will be no playoffs for the Tolman High football team in 2014.

On Monday, Tolman High Principal Christopher Savastano went before the Rhode Island Principals’ Committee on Athletics in hopes of getting the group to repel the decision of banning the Tigers from postseason play for one season.

Cumberland's second-half play keys win over Lincoln

January 27, 2014

LINCOLN — Cumberland High couldn’t continue to allow two of Lincoln High’s better players to feel comfortable on the offensive end.
That much was clear to Clippers assistant coach Collin Geiselman through the first half of Monday’s Division II-North clash at The Lions’ Den. One look at the stat sheet was enough to send a strong message to his troops: stop giving Lincoln’s Alec Cronan and Luke Kelly the freedom to either shoot from the outside or drive to the rim.

Co-op issues dominate PCOA meeting

January 27, 2014

PROVIDENCE — The issue of cooperative teams in the Rhode Island Interscholastic League has long been a source of concern. It’s also a topic that features far too much gray area, from schools finding creative ways and/or loopholes to save existing co-op programs, to establishing new ones under the guise of promoting interscholastic athletics.
