COVENTRY â€” It took three weeks, but the Coventry baseball team has figured out what is needed to win games at the Division I level.
The Oakers lost their first five Division I-South contests of the season, but they followed up an impressive victory over Portsmouth last Tuesday afternoon with an equally-impressive victory over visiting East Greenwich last Thursday.
Junior pitcher Max Marcotte allowed one earned run on seven hits in a complete-game effort, while senior shortstop Shaun Vigeant scored a pair of runs in a 5-3 victory over the Avengers.
EAST GREENWICH â€“ At halftime, on a frigid Tuesday night, the East Greenwich lacrosse team seemed to hit a cold streak. They couldnâ€™t find many chances to score, and the Avengers were staring at a one-goal deficit against the Middletown Islanders, who only had two wins coming into this game. The Avengers were in danger of being upset on their home field, a loss that would have devastated them for the rest of the season.
WEST GREENWICH â€” A split day is better than two losses, as the East Greenwich boys outdoor track team came to find out on Tuesday. The boys team traveled to Exeter/West Greenwich High School to face off against the Knights and the team from Chariho, hoping to improve their southern division ranking only weeks away from the division meet. After Tuesday, the Avengers are now at 2-4-0, not an ideal position, but given the teamâ€™s strengths and weaknesses, this is right where they could expect to be.
East Greenwich fell to Chariho 114-36 on Tuesday, but came out on top of Exeter/West Greenwich, 79-31.
SOUTH KINGSTOWN â€” It wasnâ€™t an easy afternoon for the South Kingstown High School softball team. The girls hosted the afternoon matchup with Cranston East that consisted of 14 runs, five innings and one thick skin on the Rebel team. South was unable to reach home plate even a single time against the Thunderbolts and struggled to defend against the onslaught of offensive power the visiting team brought to Broad Rock Playfields.
SOUTH KINGSTOWN â€“South Kingstown left Mondayâ€™s four-team, co-ed Southern division outdoor track and field meet with the best overall performance against the spread of divisional foes. SK defeated Coventry 94-50, Prout 113-33 and Narragansett 101-43. Coventry managed two victories: 66-60 over Narragansett and 89-37 over Prout. Narragansett defeated Prout 69-59. Scoring in a multi-team meet can seem slightly confusing with teams competing against each other in multiple, cross-fire matchups while individuals compete against the clock and measuring stick. Mondayâ€™s competition was given a depth of scoring of three meaning that in each event first place earned five points, second earned three points, and third, one point.
