EAST PROVIDENCE â It was a night of ups and downs for the South Kingstown girls volleyball team on Monday night.
It was a very bleak start to the night, but the Rebels overcame and escaped East Providence with a 11-25, 27-25, 25-23, 14-25, 15-7 win in the Division I quarterfinals over the Townies.
âScary there for a while,â said South coach Chris Fagan. âA lot of guys are sick. Theyâre just getting over it. âŠTook a couple games to warm-up with the weekend.
â[Playing on Friday] would have been better for us because of the momentum coming off Prout.â
PROVIDENCEâDown one of its top player, the Prout girls volleyball team gave Division I-North regular season champ Classical all it could handle in the opening round of the D-I playoffs Thursday.
Though not for lack of effort, the Crusaders ultimately couldnât keep pace with the Purple as Classical advanced to the D-I semifinals thanks to its 25-20, 19-25, 25-12, 25-19 victory over Prout.
âThey played the best they did all season,â Prout coach Katie Walsh said by phone Monday. âThey really wanted to win that game.â
NORTH SCITUATEâLast fall the South Kingstown girls cross country went into the RI State Championships as Class B champs and hopeful for a top six spot.
Unfortunately for the Rebels, when everything settled they found themselves on the outside looking in at a top six spot and the berth to the New England Championships that goes with it.
Sunday afternoon at Ponaganset High Schoolâs Covered Bridge Trail history repeated itself as SK finished in eighth place to once again miss out on New Englands.
WAKEFIELD â Throughout the regular season scoring had been a bane for the South Kingstown boys soccer team.
Though the Rebels were near the top of the Division I standings, that was mostly because of a defense that ranked second, giving up less than a goal a game, rather than their middle of the pack offense.
The playoffs, however, are like a new season and it was a new team that took to the pitch at Curtis Corner Middle School on Saturday night as the South Kingstown offense sparked for four goals as they ran Central Falls 4-1 in the RIIL Division I quarterfinals.
PROVIDENCEâThere was no improbable upset when the South Kingstown girls soccer team faced La Salle Friday night in the Division I quarterfinals.
After knocking of the mighty Rams last postseason in a shootout La Salle got its revenge, holding off the Rebels for a 3-0 win.
Friday night South was in a hole almost from the moment it stepped on the field as 57 seconds into the game La Salleâs Haley Puglia got a foot on a bouncing ball in the box to put it past SK goalkeeper Bridget Montle.

NARRAGANSETT- The Rhode Island Department of Transportation is planning to replace Narragansettâs Great Island Bridge in the coming year.
The focus of the project is to replace the structurally deficient, load-restricted nine-span bridge, which extends Great Island Road over Point Judith Pond.
After an inspection of the bridge in April revealed increased deterioration of the timber deck, RIDOT completed repairs on May 7 to help return the bridge it to its original posting.
