Avengers poised for title run

April 24, 2014

The goal for the East Greenwich boys tennis team last year was to get acclimated at the highest level in the state, all the while maintain the dominant play on the courts that has made the Avengers one of the strongest teams in Division II for the last several years.

Now, EG has an even loftier goal in their sophomore season in Division I.

Make it back to Slater Park.

EG boys tennis continues to rule the courts this spring

LINCOLN – The match between East Greenwich and Lincoln this past Thursday featured two tennis teams on completely different paths. The East Greenwich Avengers have cruised to a 4-1 record to begin their season, and find themselves on top of Division I-Meta A. The Lincoln Lions, however, were winless entering Thursday’s match, and were slowly sinking to the bottom of the same division.

When the two teams met, they both continued on their respective paths, as East Greenwich easily cruised to a 7-0 victory over Lincoln. The Avengers (5-1) dominated the Lions (0-6) all afternoon in both singles and doubles play. Not only did Lincoln not win a single set, but they were only victorious in two games, both of them coming in doubles play. Clearly, East Greenwich showed why they are the “team to beat” in the division.

Chargers break in the fourth

WEST WARWICK — When the ball left Dustin Jarrett’s bat, it appeared the West Warwick baseball team was about to turn a double play. And then, moments before the ball was about to disappear into the glove of West Warwick second baseman Matt Grenier, the ball struck the base umpire.

Somehow, even though the ball wasn’t struck with much venom, the umpire failed to get out of the way of the ball and the break allowed Chariho to score three runs against lefty starter Tommy Doran.

Grand slams send Chariho to victory

WOOD RIVER JUNCTION — The Chariho fastpitch softball team burst out of the dugout and rushed home plate to welcome teammate Emily Hollister after she rounded the bases. The senior had just nailed a home run on a full count in the Tuesday’s second inning to put the Chargers on the scoreboard with Woonsocket. The Chariho team was down by two after the Villa Novans scored runs off an error in the first, but as the final score would indicate, the Charger girls were just warming up.

“We were pretty solid defensively,” said coach Dave Petrocelli after Tuesday’s 8-2 triumph at Chariho High School. “We got good pitching from [sophomore] Kailee Morgan and [senior] India O’Neil and that’s something we needed. We needed a win today.”
