South was solid again this season

November 20, 2013

Mariners keep playoff hopes alive

November 20, 2013

PROVIDENCE—There is still hope for the Narragansett football team.
Needing a win to keep their chances of making the Division III playoff alive the Mariners turned in an impressive defensive performance in a 28-11 win at Classical Saturday afternoon.
“Playing on the road against Classical they’re always very athletic,” Narragansett coach Dick Fossa said after the win. “They have the ability to run it and throw the ball but we needed to stick to our game plan and play with the intensity we had with Mount Pleasant. We felt if we did that we’d have a very good chance of winning.”

The emerging industry of aquaculture

November 20, 2013

PORTSMOUTH—The shore along Town Pond in Portsmouth is thick with mud, enough to clasp down on anyone’s boot and keep it fastened there for a moment. Broken shells litter the beach, and the water’s surface is choppy because of the winds coming off Narragansett Bay. Here is the perfect environment for shellfish cultivation, and as coastal ponds throughout Rhode Island are being utilized for their shellfishing bounty, the public is growing more aware of the ecological and economic benefits of aquaculture to the state.
