WEST GREENWICHâIt all started with a phone call 24 years ago.
âIâll never forget that phone call I got in 1989,â Steve McGrane says. âIt changed my life.â
McGrane was just 26-years old when he took that call â a job proposition to coach the Exeter-West Greenwich junior high girls basketball team â from superintendent Jim Erinakes and the fledgling Exeter-West Greenwich Regional School District.
âEWG didnât even have a high school yet,â McGrane says. âI said, âjunior high girls basketball? Iâll give it a shot,â and I fell in love with it.â
PAWTUCKET â For the North Kingstown girls tennis team, 2013 had been called a âdream seasonâ by some. Somewhat unexpectedly, the Skippers ran to a 9-3 regular season, finishing third in Division I-Met A behind East Greenwich and LaSalle.
The Skipper awoke from their dream, however, when their season came to an end last Thursday in the RIIL Division I semifinals with a 4-1 loss to LaSalle at Slater Park.
âTerrific team, LaSalle,â said North coach Tim OâNeill. âMore power to them. A lot of depth a lot of talent.
