July 17, 2014

NEWPORT—The sun shined down on the baseball diamond Friday night for some New England Collegiate Baseball, as the Ocean State Waves (14-11) wouldn’t have to go that far, traveling east to Newport to take on Southern Division second place Newport Gulls (16-8), for the third showdown of the season in “The Pell Bridge Rivalry.”
Approximately, 2,800 fans crowded the seats to watch the mid-season match-up between the teams. The season series are split down the middle at a game apiece. Last game out, the Waves won a statement game on the road over division-leader—Plymouth Pilgrims.

Ella Prescott having great success with SK Little League

June 27, 2014

SOUTH KINGSTOWN - Ask any South Kingstown baseball player under the age of 13 to name their favorite baseball player, and you’ll likely get answers such as “David Ortiz,” “Dustin Pedroia,” and, should they venture outside the hallowed city limits of Boston and the friendly confines of Fenway, “Derek Jeter.” Each of those names, however, will not be the answer given by South Kingstown Little League’s only girl player in the Majors division. Her answer would seem out of time.
Ask Ella Denny Prescott what her first love is, and she’ll point to her family. Ask her again, only this time ask her to specify a sport, and she’ll say she has a tough time deciding between basketball and baseball. Little wonder. She excels at both. Having just wrapped up the traveling basketball season, her full attention has now turned to baseball. And with good results.

Controversy at state meet

June 16, 2014

PROVIDENCE — In a court of law, judges and juries often refer to prior decisions made in order to determine the best course of action in new cases. That precedent may be the only scale-tipping factor between a decision being in somebody’s favor or against it. The same system applies to sports. A procedure and rule must be established in the event that a situation becomes muddled by unforeseen circumstances or human error. But, when does that system give way to simple right and wrong?

SK girls softball still searching for first win, fall to EWG

May 8, 2014

SOUTH KINGSTOWN – This season’s first win continues to elude SK’s fastpitch softball team but it’s certainly not without effort on the part of the Rebels, who lost deceivingly 10-6 against Exeter-West Greenwich in an exciting game at Broad Rock Playfields.

The Scarlet Knights came into Monday night’s contest with a 5-4 record in Division II-South while SK came in 0-10 but a common viewer could have mistaken the game as a clash between top-tier contenders.
