Record setting day for Chariho

April 25, 2013

HARRISVILLE—Few players have left their mark on the Chariho girls lacrosse program like seniors Hannah Baker and Mattie Russell.
Now the record books will show just that.
Friday the seniors scored seven goals apiece in a 25-11 rout of the Burillville-North Smithfield Co-op to break the team record for most goals in one game.
“When we played Westerly [April 8] I got six goals and we had no idea during the whole game that it tied the record,” Russell said. “We were like, ‘oh, we could have gotten the record! But we’ll get them next time.’

Injuries taking their toll

SOUTH KINGSTOWN—More often than not, when the Chariho, South and North Kingstown outdoor track teams get together for a tri-meet it usually decides the Southern Division regular season champ.
The season is still far from over but after Monday’s meet the Skippers are in the driver’s seat to claim their fourth regular season division title in a row.
In a battle of unbeaten teams North emerged with a 104-50 victory over South and a 107.5-45.5 win over Chariho, leaving just Monday’s meet with West Warwick (2-5) and Westerly (0-2) all that stands between NK and the division title.

Strong start for skippers

April 22, 2013

NORTH KINGSTOWN — Sometimes a fresh outlook on things is all it takes and that is just what the North Kingstown High School boys tennis team will have as it takes the court this season.
