Woonsocket High Football | Villa Novans prove no match for Central in 40-0 defeat

October 11, 2014

WOONSOCKET -- As always after a Woonsocket High game, cheerleaders and volunteer moms set up a buffet table complete with pasta, pizza and other goodies for their players and coaches to gobble.

When the Villa Novans took a considerable amount of time – perhaps 20 minutes – to finally file out of the Barry Field locker rooms and offices, one questioned, “Where are they? The food’s getting cold.”

An instant later, a trainer walked out of the closed door and provided the answer: “They’re still being yelled at.”

Woonsocket girls' tennis squad enjoying every minute of breakout season

October 5, 2014

WOONSOCKET – There’s a different vibe surrounding the Villa Novan girls’ tennis program these days.

Putting it kindly, this used to be a happy-go-lucky bunch that was never overly concerned with wins and losses, the latter of which there have been plenty of in recent years. As long as the team enjoyed themselves and walked off the court with a smile on their face, the primary mission had been accomplished.

WOONSOCKET — As soon as the final point fell to the floor, spelling Mount St. Charles’ 3-1 Division I crossover loss to Coventry High on Wednesday night, head coach Josh D’Abate led his kids to the other side of the gymnasium, beyond the canvas divider, for a team meeting.


Naturally, it’s unknown what was said, as it should be, but if D’Abate’s demeanor upon return was any indication, it couldn’t have been that bad.

Red Sox minor-league coach Fox recalls Jeter's rise to top

September 28, 2014

Long before the multiple championships, the myriad of individual achievements and a celebrity crossover status that he so desperately tried to conceal, Derek Jeter kept “a razor-thin focus on things” according to Andy Fox, presently the Red Sox minor-league fielding coordinator and a former teammate of Jeter.

“For someone who was 18 at the time, he continually went about his business and it was impressive to see at that age,” Fox said.  “Who knows how it was going to end up, but he had the determination to get better.”
