Architect to do study on W.E.S.

October 28, 2010

NORTH KINGSTOWN – Consolidation of both school and town administration offices to the former Wickford Elementary School, 99 Philips St. is still the plan. But, before that, Edward Rowse Architects will conduct a study on the final details of the project. The study will cost $19,500, which is negotiable, and will either be paid for out of the town’s capital reserve fund or the undesignated fund balance. “I think the price is awfully high, but that’s just my observation. We have a facilities sub-committee that’s made up of skilled contractors.

WAKEFIELD — South Kingstown No. 1 singles player Victoria Gu, along with her fellow senior co-captains from this season – Chloe Cullen, Laura Giarrusso and Emmah Mitrano – were just mere freshman back in 2007 when they first decided to swing tennis rackets with the Rebels, trying to wind their way through the tough road that is high-school tennis in Rhode Island.
Oddly enough, the South Kingstown girls’ tennis program, in general, was trying to do the exact same thing by trying to find its place at the Division I level.

NORTH KINGSTOWN — The East Greenwich High girls’ tennis team has dominated Division II this season, but the undefeated Avengers brought their dominance to a new level in the Division II quarterfinals against No. 4 Toll Gate Tuesday afternoon.
East Greenwich’s top three singles players and three doubles teams combined to lose just 11 games and No. 4 singles player Katrina Amaral gutted out a tough, two-set match with Toll Gate’s Kayla Lopes as the Avengers earned a 7-0 victory.

PAWTUCKET – Hannah Zangari knew the odds were stacked against her.
In her time on the court – and not just for the North Kingstown girls tennis team – the junior had never beaten Bay View’s Rebecca Curran and Sunday’s Girls Tennis Singles Championship final certainly wasn’t the type of tournament where the favorite would just roll over.
It didn’t change Zangari’s attitude. She showed up to Slater Park last Sunday, put up a fight and left with no regrets after a 6-2, 6-3 loss to Curran.

WEST GREENWICH – As his players joked heading into the postgame handshake, Exeter-West Greenwich boys soccer coach Matt Savoie shouted out a quick reminder that regardless of the result in Monday, it’s not going to matter for long.
“Guys, it’s only Round 2. There’s one more to go,” he said after the Knights’ 4-1 drubbing of rival Tiverton Monday. “This one means nothing.”
Monday’s win over the Tiverton – the same school that beat them 1-0 in last year’s Division III semifinals and again 1-0 earlier this season – didn’t exactly mean nothing.
