Coventry football team takes strides

September 14, 2013

CRANSTON — It’s hard to glean much from the Saturday’s Injury Fund football round robin at Cranston Stadium.
After all, it’s the first game of the season, only last two quarters and teams don’t spend the week preparing for the contests because they don’t count in the standings.
Yet two things became clear following Coventry’s contest with potential state champion Cranston East and West Warwick’s tussle with Cranston West:
The Oakers are going to be entertaining and the Wizards have the potential to win the program’s first Super Bowl since 2002.

North boys, girls each have talent

BURRILLVILLE – The tradition of excellence for North Kingstown High School cross country, both boys and girls, is long standing and well known throughout the state. It is also a tradition that is more than likely to continue through the fall of 2013.

Progress slow for EWG girls team as it rebuilds

BURRILLVILLE – There are strength in numbers, as the old saying goes, and those numbers, or perhaps lack thereof, will be the most intriguing subplot of the 2013 season for the Exeter-West Greenwich girls cross country team.
Following a brief hiatus, the team that almost wasn’t returns to action this fall with a fully rebuilt roster and a recently appointed coach at the helm as the Scarlet Knight girls look to reestablish themselves as part of a rebuilding program that has seen just five wins combined by either gender in the last three seasons.

NK dropped by Oakers in three

NORTH KINGSTOWN — If the Coventry volleyball team wasn’t sure there was a target on its back following last year’s state title, the Oakers found out Monday night in a Division I-South showdown with long-time rival North Kingstown.
The Skippers, who were coming off a big win over Prout to start the season, used the energy of their home crowd to take the first game to the Oakers and grab leads of 21-19 and 25-24.

Cautious optimism for North

NORTH KINGSTOWN – The North Kingstown girl tennis team has seen mixed results in recent years.
From 2008-2010, the Skippers combined for just eight wins, finishing last in their division in two of those three seasons.
In 2011, behind state individual champion Hannah Zangari, the team went 9-4, finishing second in Division I-South. Last year, they took a step back, posting a 5-7 record to finish fifth in the newly restructured Division I Met-A.

Skippers open fall with win over Prout

WAKEFIELD—In a team sport like girls soccer, one player generally can’t make the difference between winning and losing.
That being said, Prout certainly could have used the services of middle defender and senior captain Maddie Hagerty for the final 30 minutes of last Thursday’s 1-0 loss to North Kingstown.

NK impressive in non-league game

SOUTH KINGSTOWN—It was just one half of football in an Injury Fund setting.
A game that most coaches openly admit means nothing when it comes to the regular season and how good a team really is.
But man, was it impressive.
North Kingstown – the same team that spent three years toiling in winless obscurity before having a slight resurgence last season – physically outmatched Westerly Saturday in a 21-13 Skipper victory at Curtis Corner Middle School.
