South spikers edge North in four

April 25, 2013

NORTH KINGSTOWN – Generally, there is no need for extra hype when any North Kingstown team squares off against South Kingstown.
This is what made it a bit of a surprise when a sluggish Skippers boys volleyball team took to their home court and fell to the Rebels 25-17, 23-25, 25-22, 25-21 Tuesday night.
“I was disappointed in how [my team] performed,” North coach Joanne Fitts said. “We just seemed to be one half step behind. I don’t understand that, so that’s my job between tonight and tomorrow.”

Browne, Cressman leading Avs

April 25, 2013

Last season the East Greenwich golf team had to play their way into the state tournament after finishing the regular season in third place in the Central Division.
This spring the Avengers could very well find themselves in the same position.
The Avs kicked off the season Tuesday with a 166-238 victory over Warwick Veterans on a blustery day at Warwick Country Club.
While 166 is a solid score for a first match, EG coach
Marc Brocato feels his team could be capable of much better marks this season.

Undefeated Eagles ground EG

April 25, 2013

EAST GREENWICH—Barrington’s Mary Coogan, Kelly Dolan and Madeline Soutter are three of the best girls lacrosse players in the state.
Tuesday at East Greenwich they showed why.
The Barrington trio combined for 10 goals as the Eagles went on to down the Avengers 17-7 Tuesday in a battle of Division I leaders.
“This team is the best team in the state, we knew that and they played like it,” senior Marielle Kraft said. “They never let down no matter what the score is on the board and to have them be denying us the entire game was really difficult.

One game at a time for Avengers

April 25, 2013

EAST GREENWICH—One game at a time.
It’s about as big of a cliché as there is in sports but for the East Greenwich boys lacrosse team it’s the only thing it can do at this point in the season.
“As long as there’s continued improvement,” EG boys lacrosse coach Brian Trapani adds as a caveat. “Are we doing things better today than we did yesterday?
“Today everyone got a good amount of playing time so the team grows in that way. We got some shots, cleared the ball after some weak clears early on…we did a good job moving the ball on offense so it’s an improvement.”

Narragansett keeps rolling along

April 25, 2013

NEWPORT–The hits just keep on coming for the Narragansett baseball team.
The Mariners battered their way to a fifth consecutive victory Monday, putting a 9-4 beating on Rogers at Cardines Field.
“We’ve been on a roll offensively,” Narragansett coach Keith Vellone said. “We came out, got two in the first and just kept rolling from there.
“I give the kids a lot of credit. They picked up where we left off in the previous game.”

Wizards get better of prout

April 25, 2013

WEST WARWICK — The regular season is about finding an identity which will carry you through the playoffs.
Monday afternoon the West Warwick baseball team took a big step toward finding an identity, while defending Division II-South champion Prout is still trying to find its footing with a young group of players.

Crusaders cruise past Tiverton

April 25, 2013

WAKEFIELD—After a disappointing loss in their season opener the Prout baseball team bounced back with an 11-1 victory over Tiverton in five innings Saturday.
“It’s a good day for Prout,” said Crusaders coach Mike LaBarbera. “We’re going to hit, it’s no secret… Certainly, a couple things didn’t go Tiverton’s way. We’re not as good as the result today and they certainly aren’t as bad.”
By the end of the game they were clicking but it was a sloppy start for the Prout bats.

Lyons continues to score at will

April 25, 2013

SOUTH KINGSTOWN—If the Prout girls lacrosse team is going to secure its first winning season in Division I junior Abby Lyons is going to be a big part of it.
Through three league games Lyons has 10 goals but Saturday against neighboring South Kingstown she had her best scoring outburst of the season.
The junior center netted five goals – four of which came in the first half – as the Crusaders (3-2, 2-1 Division I-South) downed the Rebels (1-2, 1-2 D-I South) 11-7 Saturday.

Wizards cast spell on Prout

April 25, 2013

WAKEFIELD—The softball season may be just over three weeks old but the contenders in Division II-South are beginning to make themselves apparent.
As expected, everyone is chasing East Greenwich (5-1, 5-0 D-II South) so far but Monday afternoon West Warwick (3-1, 3-1 D-II South) made a statement that it’s at the top of that next tier along with Pilgrim (4-1, 3-1 D-II South).
“It’s looking like it’s going to pan out that way,” West Warwick coach Brian Palazzo said. “It’s looking like it’s going to be one of the three of us; either East Greenwich, Pilgrim or us.”

Narragansett rolling through D-III

April 25, 2013

NARRAGANSETT—Six games into the season the Narragansett softball team has yet to be tested in Division III and at this point it’s questionable whether or not that challenge will ever come.
Having faced every team in D-III so far – except Block Island and Shea – the Mariners have rolled over their opposition by a combined 73-14 this season.
The games may not have been competitive so far but after the season the Mariners had last year, they’ll take it.
