WEST WARWICK â€” In a division where so many teams are so equally talented, small mistakes could be the difference between winning the Division II-South title or finishing fourth and earning a road date in the first round of the playoffs.
On paper, the North Kingstown baseball team has all the makings of a Final Four team in the Division I Tournament this spring.
Any good coach will tell you though whatâ€™s on paper doesnâ€™t always make its way onto the field and so far the Skippers are doing their best to work through some early hiccups.
If the North Kingstown and East Greenwich girls lacrosse teams are going to play every game like they did Friday when the two squads faced off then it should be a great season for area lax.
Though it was a tough 2012 season for the North Kingstown boys lacrosse team, one that saw the Skippers finish at the bottom of the Division I standings with a 2-8 record, the team is looking to start taking steps forward in 2013 as they prepare to open their division schedule on Friday against Moses Brown.
Exeter-West Greenwich baseball coach Dave Gamba is well aware that replacing players like T.J. Cacciola and Zach Bourgeois wonâ€™t be easy.
North Kingstown softball coach Adam Laliberte expects his team to make the playoffs this season.
In some years that might be a bold statement but the way Division I is constituted this season itâ€™s not so much.
Winning has become something of a regularity for the East Greenwich High School boys lacrosse team of late. The team did not lose a single game last season en route to a 13-0 record and their second consecutive Rhode Island Interscholastic League Division II title.
