Rebels aiming for better results

September 5, 2013

It was a struggle last fall for the South Kingstown girls tennis team as the Rebels made their return to Division I.
After two successful campaigns in Division II in 2010 and 2011 – where they posted a combined 20-8 regular season record – wins were hard to come by last season as the Rebels finished near the bottom of the standings.
As the team prepares to open their 2013 schedule, while they may face their share of challenges, it is shaping up to be a much-improved Rebels squad this fall.

Prout ready for season to begin

September 5, 2013

The start of regular season matches this week could not come soon enough for the Prout girls tennis team.
With a large core of returning players, it is not practice, but actual play, particularly early in the season, that will be pivotal for the Crusders as they look to improve upon last season’s 4-8 finish.

’Gansett should be in playoff hunt

September 5, 2013

The schedule makers certainly didn’t do the Narragansett football team any favors this season.
Last fall the Mariners didn’t clinch a playoff spot until the second-to-last week of the season and if they wait that long this year they may be out of luck.
“We’re going to have to definitely play well in the beginning because those games in late October and November, they could be tough,” Narragansett coach Dick Fossa says. “You don’t want to be in must-win games against Middletown, Mount Pleasant, Classical and East Greenwich.”

South looking to bounce back

September 5, 2013

On paper, it can be said the 2012 season for the South Kingstown football team is one best soon forgotten. Just one season after finishing third in just their second season in Division I, the Rebels dropped to the basement, going 0-8 last fall.
In practice, however, going through such a season can be beneficial for a young athlete as a way to quickly learn nothing in sports is a given and teach the kind of fortitude needed to succeed on the field.
