Mount St. Charles breaks ground on tennis courts

December 8, 2012

WOONSOCKET — It was nearly 40 years ago, back in 1973, that Richard Lawrence founded the Mount St. Charles' boys tennis program, and he well recalls how primitive the playing conditions were.
“We had two old concrete courts over by the third-base line (of the current baseball diamond, located on the upper-campus field),” smiled Lawrence, now the school's athletic director. “We also had two courts inside the (Adelard hockey) arena. Those outdoor courts were in terrible shape, and the ones inside, the kids had very little room to maneuver.”

December 8, 2012

Tony DiLorenzo has been a member of the coaching staff at Mount St. Charles for nearly a decade, and even he had a difficult time remembering the last time the Mounties fielded a girls’ hockey team as small in numbers as the squad they have this winter.

Police charge 3 men with breaking and entering

December 7, 2012

WOONSOCKET – Three men got caught breaking into a house Tuesday after they mistakenly believed no one was home after ringing the doorbell.
The downstairs tenant of the two-family at 387 Park Place was indeed home, however; he simply didn’t answer the doorbell because he didn’t recognize the individual ringing it, he told police.
Moments later, the tenant saw two men scaling the balcony to the second story of the home and he heard their footsteps after they allegedly forced their way in through a window.

The Cumberland Street monument, whose prominent Christian cross was attacked as unconstitutional by a Wisconsin atheist group earlier this year, was named for Jolicoeur’s uncle over 90 years ago.

Friars pull away from Rams, 72-57

December 7, 2012

PROVIDENCE - The game changed on an alley-oop.
Rhode Island freshman Jordan Hare rose above the Providence College defense to emphatically finish a perfectly executed play with 15 minutes, 22 seconds left in the second half to cut the Friars' lead to five.
As it turned out, the alley-oop was the best thing that happen to PC because Friar coach Ed Cooley opted to eschew his zone defense against the athletic Rams and play man-to-man. Over the next 8 minutes, 21 seconds the Rams didn't make a basket, went 0-for-8 from the field and committed six turnovers in a 72-57 defeat.
