Road Racing | Hartnett, Dionne claim victory at Arnold Mills Four-Mile Road Race

July 4, 2015

CUMBERLAND – Bobby Hartnett made a triumphant return to his hometown on the Fourth of July morning, and – in the process – regained his own personal independence.

The 27-year-old Cumberland High graduate and New York City resident easily captured the men's overall title at the 47th annual Arnold Mills Four-Mile Road Race beginning and ending at the North Cumberland Fire Station, cruising to a stellar time of 20:06.

The victory signified to Hartnett that, after suffering from nagging injuries over the past 18 months, his distance-running career is back on track.

Bradley, Curran edge English, Thompson at CVS Health Charity Classic

June 30, 2015

BARRINGTON – In a perfect world, former PGA stars Brad Faxon and Billy Andrade would have captured this summer’s version of the CVS Health Charity Classic, the tournament the two gracious Rhode Islanders co-founded back in 1999 to raise much-needed money for local charities.

It would have been most appropriate if they had. After all, in the previous 16 events, they – with the help of CVS and other sponsors – have collected and doled out over $18 million to organizations who desperately need financial aid to survive.

Little League Softball | Cumberland wins sixth straight District IV crown

June 29, 2015

CUMBERLAND  –  Lizzie Pickering could barely contain her excitement.

When batterymate Gabby D’Intino tossed to first baseman Abbie Vallely for the final out, the Cumberland All-Stars immediately celebrated a 10-3 victory over Lincoln, one that delivered them the R.I. Little League District IV Major Division (11-12) Tournament championship at Diamond Hill Park on Monday evening.

“This is amazing!” the backstop Pickering gushed afterward. “I started crying because I was so happy we won.”

Burrillville Athletics | CHAMPIONS ABOUND: In 2014-15, Burrillville was known as "Title Town"

June 28, 2015

BURRILLVILLE -- It’s been a tradition in these parts for decades, where the town’s police cruisers and fire trucks, sirens blaring and lights flashing, escort a newly-crowned state champion’s team bus around the villages so residents can share in the glory.

To be honest, for years upon frustrating years, it didn’t occur that often for Burrillville High’s athletic programs – maybe once or twice every decade. But that all changed, and then some, during this remarkable 2014-15 school year.

Blazing her trail: Broncos’ Sydney Blais to attend SNHU on track scholarship

June 27, 2015

BURRILLVILLE  –  Way back in October, Sydney Blais decided more or less on a whim to travel to Southern New Hampshire University for an open house. She had heard it maintained a respected program in Baking and Pastry Arts, a passionate interest of hers.

When the Burrillville High senior first set eyes on the campus just outside Manchester, she fell in love with the quaint, small-school atmosphere, and chose to further her academic and athletic careers there.

June 26, 2015


CUMBERLAND – For the third time in as many years, Cumberland High will have a new athletic director. 

Chris Tashjian is not returning for a second year as the Clippers’ AD for reasons that are not quite clear. Citing that it’s not the school department’s policy to publicly discus personnel matters, Cumberland Superintendent Dr. Philip Thornton confirmed in an email that a search committee is being formed to find Tashjian’s replacement.

Pawtucket Red Sox | Craig continues to bide his time with PawSox

June 25, 2015

PAWTUCKET – If anyone’s wondered how Allen Craig is faring in his prolonged tenure with the Pawtucket Red Sox, he has an answer: Just fine, thank you.

After a less-than-productive 2014 debut with Boston, not to mention more of the same this spring – then being demoted from Boston back on May 10 – the 30-year-old outfielder/first baseman is hell-bent on making a demonstrative return to the Red Sox. He’s hoping it will happen sooner than later.

Pawtucket Red Sox | Victorino feels fine after 1st rehab game with PawSox

June 24, 2015

PAWTUCKET — As far as he’s concerned, Shane Victorino made an auspicious start to his comeback to the Red Sox on Wednesday night.

In his initial contest with Pawtucket after being sent for a 20-day rehab assignment to nurse a left calf strain, the 34-year-old BoSox outfielder played left and batted twice in his short, four-inning stint against Rochester.

He didn’t field a ball and went 0-for-2 at the plate, but those numbers didn’t matter much to him. Instead, this was just about getting back and conditioning himself for the road ahead.
