Skippers survive first round

October 20, 2013

NORTH KINGSTOWN – It is a good time to be a member of the North Kingstown High School girls tennis program.
The JV squad wrapped up their league title last Friday. On Sunday, the Skippers top doubles team of Lucia Bolibruch and Grace Callahan captured the state’s individual title. Walking away from the school’s tennis courts on Tuesday afternoon following the Skipper ’s Division I quarterfinals match against Barrington, coach Tim O’Neill might have summed up his team’s recent run best with one simple sentence.
“The dream season continues.”

PAWTUCKET—Not bad for a team that by their own admission was ‘thrown together’ at the beginning of the season.
“She was actually a singles player last year and I started playing tennis my freshman year of high school,” North Kingstown junior Grace Callahan said after she and playing partner sophomore Lucia Bolibruch captured the RIIL State Doubles Championship Sunday at Slater Park.
“We kind of got thrown together in the mix. A lot of the partners on our team had been playing together for a few years.”

NORTH KINGSTOWN—With the 2013 girls high school soccer regular season winding into the final third of the schedule, the October 10th Division I border-rival grudge match between East Greenwich and North Kingstown may be one that foreshadows a possible playoff matchup, as one team continues to roll and the other looks to recreate itself after a key injury.

EAST GREENWICH – Despite leading them in the standings, before even taking the field last Friday night, East Greenwich High School football coach John George knew his team was going to have their hands full with a potent Moses Brown Quakers attack considered by some the best in the division.
As the Avengers quickly found out when they took the to Carcieri Field, however, it was not the Quakers skill, but their sized that proved East’s ultimate downfall as they were pushed around in a 34-0 beating, their first loss of the season.

Finals weren’t enjoyable for everyone

October 20, 2013

PAWTUCKET—Sunday’s RIIL State Singles Championship between Peri Sheinin and Aleksandra Drljaca was about as entertaining of a girls tennis match as you’ll see.
Each game highly contested and each point earned.
“We’re really great players,” Drljaca said. “We both have a lot of tournament experience. A high level of intensity was really seen and it was a great match.”
For as entertaining as the level of play was though there was also an unmistakable sense of awkwardness both on the court and in the crowd.

Doubles teams fell shy of goal of winning title

October 20, 2013

PAWTUCKET—In a tournament setting there can only be one winner.
Well, in this case two, but semantics aside only one team could come out of the RIIL State Doubles Tournament as champions Sunday.
Unfortunately for East Greenwich – who had all three teams on the same side of bracket – the winners weren’t wearing Avengers red as North Kingstown’s Lucia Bolibruch and Grace Callahan claimed the title with their 6-4, 6-2 victory over La Salle’s Lindsay Brazenor and Kat Braganca.

PAWTUCKET—Where do we go from here?
It’s the big question facing the East Greenwich tennis team as it plays out the remainder of its season with aspirations of a Division I Championship a definite reality.
Two teammates – senior Aleksandra Drljaca and freshman Peri Sheinin – battled for the first time Sunday and there’s no denying at times it got a little nasty.
