WOONSOCKET --- On â€śTeacher Appreciation Nightâ€ť at Woonsocket High, it seemed only fitting that the Novans taught Smithfield High a couple of lessons in rebounding and defense in their Division I-North rematch on Tuesday.
Junior forward Kailey Fugere scored a game-high 19 points, senior center Ashley Dubois added 16, and the duo also teamed up to rip down 28 rebounds to help the Novans avenge an earlier loss to the Sentinels and soar to an impressive 57-37 triumph.
WOONSOCKET --- Not many high school hockey coaches get their kicks out of putting together a non-league schedule as grueling and competitive as the one Mount St. Charles Academy coach Dave Belisle rolls out every year.
He always starts it off with the teamâ€™s annual post-Christmas Holiday Face-Off tournament, which attracts some of the best talent in the Northeast. He then sprinkles in a couple of tough opponents over the next 4-5 weeks, such as two-time Connecticut state champion Hamden High last Wednesday.
