Mariners sweep Shea, continue undefeated record

April 17, 2014

NARRAGANSETT – Sometimes a little sunshine is all it takes to turn an afternoon around.

The Mariners tennis team hosted the team from Shea on Wednesday at Sprague Field. After a struggled 4-3 match win against North Smithfield on Monday, Narragansett was eager to take advantage of the improved weather and add to their win total.

In record time, the Mariners secured every one of seven matches against the Raiders, not to the surprise of coach, Russel Wyatt.

Chargers find groove against Pilgrim in second season win

April 17, 2014

WARWICK — It was a 180-degree difference of performance put out by the Chariho boys’ volleyball team on Tuesday night. Instead of a bested team struggling to find an offensive flow, the team was a collaborative unit, marked by strong blocks and fluid communication.

The Chargers traveled to Pilgrim High School to face a team with a record that wasn’t far off their own in 2013. After Tuesday’s match, the Patriots sunk to 1-4 and the Chargers took their second win to put them at 2-3 in the first month of the spring season. Not that it was a crushing win all the way through, but the Chariho team made the third game of the match look easy. But, in the end it was a sweep by the Chargers in the 3-0 final, made up of game scores 25-15, 25-23, and 25-7.
