Cumberland Baseball | O'Neill, Calabro guide Clippers to Game 1 win over previously-unbeaten Hendricken

June 16, 2015

PAWTUCKET – Cumberland High skipper Andy Tuetken knew long before the start of this R.I. Division I Tournament championship set that upsetting top-ranked and unbeaten Hendricken would be a tall order.
He nevertheless understood his never-say-die squad was peaking at the right time, especially after producing a pair of impressive semifinal wins against a Lincoln team that had been rolling.

Mount St. Charles Baseball | MIRACLE FINISH: Cardiac Mounties deliver walk-off victory over Tolman in Game 1 of Division II finals

June 16, 2015

PAWTUCKET – For the better part of seven innings, Tolman High seemed destined to clinch the opener of its R.I. Division II Tournament best-of-three championship series against Mount St. Charles.

Senior righty Alex Lopez pitched himself out of trouble time after time, with help, of course, from his defense, especially freshman second baseman Kyle Depatie, who managed seven assists and a putout.

Mount St. Charles Baseball | READY TO TAKE AIM: Mounties to meet Tolman with Div. II title on the line

June 15, 2015

PAWTUCKET – Virtually every time Tolman High meets Mount St. Charles on the diamond, Tigers' mentor Theo Murray mentions his personal history with the Woonsocket Catholic school.

It seems back in 1992, when Murray represented Shea as a standout senior third/first baseman, his Raiders held a precarious lead over the Mounties in the R.I. Division II Tournament losers' bracket final. In the end, however, MSC prevailed with a late rally, 7-6, eliminating Shea from a berth opposite Westerly, the eventual state champion.

Cumberland Baseball | Clippers ready for challenge against undefeated Hendricken in Div. I finals

June 15, 2015

CUMBERLAND – Because they competed in different leagues within Division I, Cumberland High didn't face fellow state finalist Hendricken during the regular season, but that doesn't mean Clippers' first-year skipper Andy Tuetken hasn't done his homework.

He knows full well what his club is up against when the two meet in the opener of the best-of-three D-I championship set, slated for today at 6 p.m. inside McCoy Stadium.

WEST WARWICK  –  With a trip to the R.I. Division I Tournament championship set on the line, Cumberland High first-year skipper Andy Tuetken delivered to his team one final bit of advice on Sunday.

North Smithfield Softball | Lady Northmen battle to the last out but fall 2-1 to N. Providence

June 14, 2015


PROVIDENCE – You create your own luck, and that’s exactly what the North Smithfield softball team tried to do Sunday afternoon with a spot in the Division II finals on the line.

North Providence responded in calm and cool nature, making defensive plays that took the air out of the Northmen’s attack. It was a scene that repeated several times and represented a major reason why the Cougars emerged from the losers’ bracket with a 2-1 victory. 

North Smithfield-Davies Tech Softball | Pasquariello, Northmen bounce Patriots from Div. II Playoffs

June 13, 2015

PROVIDENCE — Jen Pasquariello can almost be described as North Smithfield head coach Paul Mercier’s pet project.

“She’s not a starter. She’s somebody who needed to be pushed and kind of wake up a little bit,” said Mercier. “You’ve got to show the coaching staff during practices that you want to be out there.”

It reached the point where Mercier sat down with Pasquariello as the regular season drew to a close. Since the coach-to-player moment, the naturally skilled Pasquariello has done everything within her power to reward Mercier’s faith in her.

Lincoln Baseball | LION TAMERS: Levin, Lions send Coventry packing from Div. I playoffs

June 9, 2015

LINCOLN – Alex Levin knew there was going to be a celebration, but not the extent.

Mere seconds after he himself recorded the final out, Lincoln High’s starters rushed him from their positions and the subs poured out of the dugout with a single mission: Piling onto Levin, then standing near the hill.

“I had to squeeze my catcher (senior Jake Petrin) from underneath; I kept saying, ‘Get ‘em off me – now!’” Levin grinned afterward. “I couldn’t breathe.”
