Chargers honing their skills

July 25, 2013

Despite his team’s 2-5 record Chariho coach Corey Downey feels his squad is right where it needs to be in the Narragansett Summer Boys Basketball League to see success this winter.
“This summer hasn’t really been about wins, it’s been about figuring out what our strengths and weaknesses are offensively and defensively,” Downey said. “We’re just continuing to play hard and play good defense whatever it is at that time whether it is man or zone.

Marchesseault K’s 16 in a loss

July 25, 2013

WEST WARWICK — The West Warwick Post Two American Legion baseball team desperately needed to win Tuesday’s regular-season finale against Gordon Greene to avoid playing in the single-elimination round of the upcoming Legion playoffs.
Of course, they didn’t expect to win the game in the manner they did.

SK rolls into playoffs on hot streak

July 25, 2013

WEST WARWICK – It is one of the oldest clichés in the game of baseball; “It’s not a sprint, it’s a marathon.”
It is also a cliché that may end up defining the summer of 2013 for the South Kingstown Post 39 baseball team.
After struggling early in the season – opening up with a 3-9 record – Post 39 turned it on over the final eight days of the regular season to roll into the playoffs as one of the hottest teams in the league.
SK went 6-3 in that span, which culminated with their 6-5 win over West Warwick Post Two on Monday night at McCarthy Field.

July 25, 2013

SOUTH KINGSTOWN—When the streak of state championships finally ended for the South Kingstown boys tennis team this spring initially there was shock.
Of course, how could there not be?
The Rebels entered the 2013 season having won 14 Division I Championships in a row only to see their run end with a late May loss to LaSalle in the semifinals.
Saturday – nearly two months after the end of the streak – former SK players from nearly the past two decades gathered at the tennis courts at Broad Middle School for the inaugural Alumni Doubles Tournament.

SK’s McKinley Slade shines at RI Amateur

July 18, 2013

NORTH KINGSTOWN— Recent South Kingstown High School graduate McKinley Slade is playing the kind of golf he always knew he was capable of.
Slade – who finished tied for third at the RIIL State Golf Championships this spring – made it all the way to the quarterfinals of the 108th Rhode Island Amateur Golf Tournament held at Quidnessett Country Club last week before finally falling to Ledgemont County Club’s Bobby Leopold.
After upsetting Ryan Pelletier 4 and 3 in the first round Thursday Slade – who entered the 32-golfer bracket as the No. 27 seed – knew he was in store for a good day.

Neighbor eliminates American

July 18, 2013

SOUTH KINGSTOWN – It had become something of a habit for the Narragansett 9/10-Year Old All-Stars in their games leading up to last Thursday’s District 3 consolation bracket final at Tuckertown Park against South Kingstown American. They would start slow, allow their opponent to build up a big cushion and then surge back for the win.
This time around it was Narragansett jumping out to the early lead before South Kingstown fought back from a six-run deficit.
Ultimately, however, Narragansett managed to hold on for an 11-10 win.
