COVENTRYâ As dominant as the Coventry volleyball team has been over the last five seasons, the Oakers never seem to play their best volleyball on Mondays.
That wasnât the case Monday night when a young South Kingstown team made the trip north for a Division I-South encounter. Led by senior outside hitter Jill Ward and junior setter Sarah McGrath, the Oakers made sure there would be no thought of an upset.
EXETER-WEST GREENWICHâThe Lady Scarlet Knightsâ volleyball team has remained perfect through the first 14 matches of the season and on Monday night Prout came to town trying to end that fantastic streak, but Exeter-West Greenwich wouldnât budge and held on strong with another 3-0 defeat of the Crusaders; this time at their place.
PROVIDENCEâ If the East Greenwich Avengers field hockey team wanted revenge against one opponent from their schedule, it would most definitely be defeating Moses Brown on the road to Providence for Columbus Day. The Avengers certainly lived up to that standard by dramatically shutting out the Quakers 2-0.
WARWICKâ It was nothing short of impressive this past Monday holiday for the East Greenwich Avengers girls volleyball team, as they conquered the top spot in the 15th annual âKoch Eyeâ Volleyball Tournament and also followed that up nearly 24 hours later by taking the trip to Warwick to knock-off the closest team to them in the Division I standingsâthe Pilgrim Patriots.
