High school soccer | EYES ON THE BALL: Lincoln's Bacon added to watch list for National High School All-American soccer game

September 12, 2015

LINCOLN – Over the past several weeks, former Lincoln High soccer star Jack Bacon has discovered he will, in fact, attend the school of his dreams – Boston College – on a partial athletic scholarship, and is on the watch list to represent the East squad in the annual National High School All-American Soccer game on Dec. 5 in Raleigh, N.C.

As for the latter laurel, he found out about that rather by mistake.

Providence College basketball | Cooley lauds benefits of Big East’s Freshman Fundamentals Program; PC coach believes big season awaits Bullock

September 12, 2015

PROVIDENCE – There was a specific reason why Providence College’s four-person freshman basketball class did not attend Friday’s season-ticket-holders appreciation party.

With first team All-America candidate Kris Dunn and his fellow Friar returnees standing in front of the podium, Ed Cooley informed the Peterson Recreation Center crowd that the program’s newcomers were on their way to New York City. The trip had a finite purpose as the Big East Conference had scheduled a weekend orientation for first-year college players.

Lions stay undefeated with sweep of Broncos

September 10, 2015

LINCOLN — Brianna Walters and Alex Fish had done just about everything to lift the Lincoln girls volleyball team to the precipice of its third straight sweep Thursday night against Burrillville, so it was only fitting the team’s two captains combined on the final play to end the match.
Walters, the team’s talented senior setter, fired a set to the dynamic Fish, who smashed the ball past the Bronco defense for her team-high ninth kill of the evening to secure the Lions a 25-18, 25-20, 25-16 Division II-North home victory.

September 9, 2015

NEW BRITAIN, Conn. – The final Saturday in August brought mixed emotions as it marked the last time the New Britain Rock Cats would take the field under the home lights.

The finish line has been crossed for a franchise that is ending a 33-year-old relationship between minor-league baseball and the “Hardware City.” The process of turning over a new leaf will be complete next April when the Hartford Yard Goats start playing games in a ballpark located in Connecticut’s capital city.

Woonsocket Girls' Soccer | Roderick, Blais each score twice as Woonsocket tops Shea, 6-1

September 9, 2015

WOONSOCKET — It's rare for teams to switch divisions in a non-alignment year, but that's exactly what happened in Division III girls soccer this season where St. Raphael, which went undefeated in Division III-B last season, moved up to Division III-A, while two-win Shea went in the opposite direction.

Not only did the move give the Raiders a better chance to compete this season in III-B North, but it also provided Woonsocket with motivation after finishing third in the division last season.

Woonsocket Track & Field | Villa Novans get ready to throw their weight around

August 24, 2015

When it comes to the weight events in high school track and field, particularly the hammer and indoor weight, Rhode Island has been one of the country’s best. At the national meet this past winter season, the Ocean State claimed the first three slots in the 25-pound weight and two of the top six in the girls’ 20-pounder. It was even better at the outdoor nationals where R.I. nearly swept the boys’ competition in the hammer, taking five of the six podium spots, and earned three medals for girls.

College Football | Former Burrillville QB DeSilva opts to not play at URI this season

August 21, 2015

BURRILLVILLE – Deb Hunt would listen to her grandson Isaiah DeSilva whenever he talked about balancing a heavy summer course load and his college football responsibilities.

Hunt interpreted what DeSilva expressed as nothing more than the desire of an incoming freshman who was fully intent on honoring his agreed-upon student-athlete duties. Never once did anyone close to DeSilva believe that the football portion of the equation was seriously hanging in the balance.
