Oakers snap losing streak to Hawks

May 3, 2013

WARWICK — The clearest sign the Coventry volleyball team isn’t the same, old Coventry volleyball team came Tuesday night in a Division I crossover match against perennial powerhouse Bishop Hendricken.
Sure, this isn’t a vintage Hendricken team, but the Oakers made easy work of the 2012 state finalists to earn the program’s first victory of Hawks since Sept. 11, 2003.

Smith's 37 pushes SK past Mariners

May 3, 2013

SOUTH KINGSTOWN—The South Kingstown golf team can relate to how Naragansett was feeling Wednesday at Laurel Lanes Country Club.
Similarly to what the Rebels did against Chariho and Prout Monday, the Mariners fired their best round of the season – a 171 – but it wasn’t enough to get a win.
“There’s a lot of parity,” Narragansett coach Bill Behrends said. “We had a scrimmage [Tuesday] against South at our place [Point Judith Country Club] and we shot really, really well so I thought we had a shot today but Justin [Smith] broke our back right there with that 37.”

Crusaders improve record to 8-0

May 3, 2013

WAKEFIELD – Another match, another victory for the Prout boys tennis team as it continued to roll through its 2013 season Tuesday afternoon.
The unlucky victim this time around was winless Scituate, who was shut out 7-0 as the Crusaders bettered their record to a perfect 8-0.
Despite their opponent’s meager record, Prout coach Mary Lou Morissette was not about to let her team’s recent success take her players out of the game.

South makes quick work of Barrington

May 3, 2013

BARRINGTON – It was a picturesque spring day in Barrington Wednesday.
The sun was shining, temperature pushing 70 degrees and barely a breeze off the bay.
The perfect day.
For everyone except the Barrington High baseball team.
The Eagles had the unfortunate task of taking on South Kingstown and learned the hard way what most who have stood in South’s way this season have found out; the Rebels are a good baseball team.

Rebels pick up first win of season

May 3, 2013

WAKEFIELD – Relief at last.
There has been some frustration this season for the South Kingston softball team as the Rebels had come so close at times but could not break into the win column through their first six games this season.
A sigh of relief went up on Tuesday night, however, as the drought came to an end when South Kingstown routed Johnston, 12-2, in six innings.
“We needed it,” said South coach Joel Tuoni. “We’ve been doing some things in spurts and haven’t strung anything together so after six losses we needed to get a win.”

Rebels continue to roll in Div. II

May 3, 2013

SOUTH KINGSTOWN–The South Kingstown boys lacrosse team controlled Cumberland for the majority of Saturday’s hard-fought Division II matchup on its way to an 8-3 victory.
Junior captain Chad Mitchell was a force for the Rebels, netting five goals and assisting on two others.
His points were also timely, breaking a tie game and scoring five of SK’s final six goals.
Both teams set a defensive tone early, exchanging turnovers and a few meager scoring opportunities.

Championship holdovers leading SK

May 3, 2013

SOUTH KINGSTOWN—For the South Kingstown boys volleyball team Monday’s match against one-win Barrington had all the makings of a trap game.
The Rebels were coming off an emotional sweep of rival Hendricken – whom SK beat in five games last season to capture the 2012 RIIL Boys Volleyball Division I Championship – and have a match with one-loss East Providence looming Thursday at 6:30 p.m.
“We were up for that match big time,” Fagan said of the meeting with Hendricken. “Ryan [Casci] had probably the best match of his career. He played amazing.”
