Cumberland High Boys Soccer | HOLDING DOWN THE FORT: Principal, Vice Principal take over as co-coaches for Clippers

October 8, 2015

CUMBERLAND – People like Alan Tenreiro and Adolfo Costa are doers and men of swift action.

They also have soccer in their blood, which as it turns out proved to be quite handy.

Late last month, Cumberland High was thrown into a quandary upon the resignation of first-year boys’ soccer head coach Manny Veiga. With nine regular-season games still ahead for the Clippers, the program required a quick solution.

Commentary | McGair: PawSox manager Kevin Boles has strong case to be Boston's next 1B coach

October 6, 2015

A little of this, a little of that …

Of all the members of the Red Sox baseball staff in place when Dave Dombrowski became president of baseball operations, PawSox manager Kevin Boles was probably the only person who could safely say he had a foot in the door with the new guy in town.

Cross Country | Cumberland rules North Division once again; Individual honors go to Burrillville’s Durand, Cumberland’s Laverty

CUMBERLAND — Burrillville senior Zach Durand has a simple objective every time he toes the line for a cross-country meet.

Boston Red Sox | BoSox parting ways with former PawSox manager Arnie Beyeler

October 4, 2015

Arnie Beyeler was well aware of the risks when the Red Sox signed Hanley Ramirez and proclaimed that he would be taking over the left-field duties.

A former PawSox manager who guided the ball club to the 2012 Governors’ Cup, Beyeler spent the last three seasons Boston’s first-base coach. He was also responsible for coaching outfield play, meaning he had a personal and professional stake in transforming Ramirez into an adequate defender. 

Burrillville Football | ZACK ATTACK: Senior runs wild as Broncos roll past North Providence

October 3, 2015

NORTH PROVIDENCE – Like a lot of folks, Burrillville senior Zack Tayes enjoys playing fantasy football.

Told his final rushing stats against North Providence Saturday – 259 yards on just 15 carries and five touchdowns – would have resulted in a ridiculous individual point total and likely a lopsided victory over this week’s fantasy opponent, Tayes simply smiled while trying to wipe the mud off his face.

Cumberland Girls' Soccer | La Salle tops Clippers in Division I-North showdown

October 3, 2015

PROVIDENCE— The margin for error is so thin between the top three girls soccer teams in Division I-North that one misplaced pass or one missed defensive assignment could be the difference between a victory or a defeat.

That was the case Saturday afternoon when Cumberland finished up its most difficult week of the regular season with a road contest against the top team in the state, La Salle Academy.

Women's College Soccer | Cumberland's Ribeiro enjoying strong bounce-back season at UConn

October 2, 2015

Stephanie Ribeiro’s return to the UConn women’s soccer team couldn’t have been scripted any better.

Exactly one year ago, Ribeiro dealt with the likelihood that her junior season was over before it actually started. The Cumberland native pulled her hip flexor during the spring of her sophomore year. The frustrating part was that every time Ribeiro believed that she was in the clear, a setback would occur.

Bryant Football | Bulldogs to be tested by bigger Monmouth squad

October 2, 2015

SMITHFIELD – On the surface, Saturday’s contest at Monmouth seems the perfect warmup act for Bryant University’s football team prior to sinking its teeth into Northeast Conference play.

The Bulldogs (2-1) and Hawks (1-3) were NEC rivals for five seasons before Monmouth left to join the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference, which doesn’t offer football. The Hawks aligned with the Big South – the same league as Coastal Carolina, Bryant’s opponent last week – prior to the 2014 season.

NBA Basketball | Roncarati on the Rise: Cumberland native now Atlanta's director of rehabilitation

October 1, 2015

Cumberland native Mike Roncarati was in Las Vegas fulfilling his duties with Golden State’s NBA Summer League entry when he found himself standing at the crossroads of his professional career.

The opportunity to climb the Warriors’ organizational ladder was on the table, as the Bishop Feehan graduate had the opportunity to succeed good friend Keke Lyles as the team’s director of athletic performance.
