Prout no match for unbeaten Lincoln

March 22, 2013

Prout goalkeeper Austin Gemma played about as well as anyone could expect a freshman to in game two of Saturday’s best-of-three Division II Boys Ice Hockey Championship series between the Crusaders and Lincoln.

Rhody made strides under new coach

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.

March 22, 2013
