Rhody made strides under new coach

March 22, 2013

Circumstance is an essential part of evaluation.
All one has to do to understand that is to look at the University of Rhode Island men’s basketball team this season.
The Rams finished 8-21 overall (3-13 Atlantic 10) and of their 21 losses 15 were by single digits, yet this was a pretty good year for URI.

Rams return home

March 22, 2013

It took the University of Rhode Island baseball team nine tries before it finally won a game this season.
If the Rams are able to do anything special this season it will be a result of those nine games.

Quinn, Donovan grew closer one 'step' at a time

March 22, 2013

Off the court Prout girls basketball coach Phil Quinn and his step-daughter Brittany Donovan have gotten along ever since they entered each other’s lives.
“We’re really close,” Donovan says. “He came into my life when I was in eighth grade and he was an amazing coach and it’s going to be really hard next year without them. Off the court he’s an amazing dad so I couldn’t have asked for anything better.”

Prouts defense played as well as it could have

March 22, 2013

As far as defensive performances in a loss go you’d be hard pressed to find a better effort than that of the Prout boys hockey team’s Saturday.
The Crusaders may have fallen short – dropping a 3-2 overtime decision in game two – of winning the Division II Championship this winter but it wasn’t a result of lack of effort.

Adams an All-American

March 22, 2013

It was quite a weekend for Chariho graduate Derek Adams.
Adams, a sophomore wrestler at Springfield College, secured himself a spot as an All-American thanks to his fourth place finish in the 133-pound weight class at the 2013 NCAA Division III Championships this past weekend at Cedar Rapids Ice Arena in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

Mariners hold off Huskies

March 1, 2013

When the Narragansett and East Greenwich girls basketball teams played one week ago the stakes were high.
Now, they’re even higher.
Last Thursday the Mariners handed the Avengers an eight point loss to win the Division II-South regular season title.
