It was a great weekend for the URI baseball team as they took the series 2-1 against the University of Massachusetts-Amherst.
The Rams breezed by the Minutemen 9-2 in the first game this past Friday.
UMass took an early lead when it scored on an RBI double in the top of the second but the visitors advantage didnâ€™t make it through the inning.
Over the past six years no one has done more for the South Kingstown High girls lacrosse team than Jeff Feaster.
When the program began in 2007 Feaster was an assistant under Medelise Reifsteck and in 2008 he took over as head coach.
The closest thing he had to experience coaching lacrosse was watching his daughter play for the local lacrosse club.
After last yearâ€™s successes, the South Kingstown High baseball team opened their 2013 season with a lot of promise as they took to the field for their opener on Monday in Portsmouth.
Only one team stood between the Narragansett High baseball team and a berth to the Final Four of the Division II Tournament last season; Woonsocket.
