URI offense searching for right tempo

August 15, 2013

KINGSTON — The beginning of Saturday’s scrimmage exhibited the chicken-or-the-egg conundrum the up-tempo Rhode Island offense faces this season.

Frosh Saintfleur getting attention

August 15, 2013

KINGSTON — Elijah Saintfleur has plenty of time to earn a starting spot on the Rhode Island offense, but he isn’t wasting any of it.

Racers from as far away as Utah competed, as well as some very fast Bay Staters, who travelled to challenge the local competitors.

Coach Tuoni leaving SK

August 15, 2013

For the past 26 years Joel Tuoni has spent his time coaching girls basketball and softball at various high schools throughout the state.
He has been in charge of both programs at South Kingstown High School – his alma mater as a graduate of the class of 1982 – for the last decade but as Tuoni said by phone Tuesday morning, “life’s about changes.”
Tuoni will not be returning to coach the Rebels this season as he is planning to move to Florida to finish up his bachelor’s degree.
