Prout cruises past Chariho in three

September 14, 2013

WAKEFIELD—A number of girls volleyball teams have found out so far this season that if you take a night off in Division I-South you’re not going to win.
Last Thursday the Crusaders’ didn’t have their ‘A’ game against North Kingstown and the result was a 25-15, 25-17, 25-12 loss to the Skippers.
“This is a very competitive division. If you take a day off you are going to lose,” Prout coach Katie Walsh said. “…[Against North Kingstown] it was just one of those days where we couldn’t get anything started and by the time we did it was the end of the match.”

Rebels were top of class last fall

BURRILLVILLE – With just days before the official start to their 2013 season, the South Kingstown High School boys and girls cross country teams descended upon Burrillville Middle School last Saturday to take part in the annual RIIL Cross Country Injury Fund Carnival.
The Rebels girls team enter the 2013 season coming off back-to-back Class B championships and a five year span that has seen them lose just four regular season meets. They got the Injury Fund festivities going for South looking to defend their Casewell Race title in the very first race of the day.

Crusaders hope for improvement

September 14, 2013

BURRILLVILLE – Running in the Southern Division, it can be hard for a team to get noticed competing annually against the likes of perennial powerhouses Chariho, North and South Kingstown.
While they may not yet have reached that level where they are getting the same notoriety as the Skippers, Rebels and Chargers, coaches around the division will note the Prout boys cross country program is quietly become one of the premier programs in the Southern Division.

Stoppage time score saves Mariners

NARRAGANSETT—How a team views a tie is all about how it happens.
The Narragansett boys soccer team, for example, was more than happy to leave Tuesday’s home contest against Mount Pleasant with a 1-1 decision thanks to some late heroics from senior Alec Cotroneo.
“The good news is we’ll get a point out of it,” Narragansett coach Ryan Kanaczet said. “We don’t know what the bad news is because we don’t know how this team’s going to fare.
“…Hopefully this team is a top five team in the division and we can say that tie wasn’t that bad.”
