PAWTUCKET â For the North Kingstown girls tennis team, 2013 had been called a âdream seasonâ by some. Somewhat unexpectedly, the Skippers ran to a 9-3 regular season, finishing third in Division I-Met A behind East Greenwich and LaSalle.
The Skipper awoke from their dream, however, when their season came to an end last Thursday in the RIIL Division I semifinals with a 4-1 loss to LaSalle at Slater Park.
âTerrific team, LaSalle,â said North coach Tim OâNeill. âMore power to them. A lot of depth a lot of talent.
PAWTUCKETâWhen people remember the Narragansett girls tennis team winning the 2013 Division II Championship theyâll remember Eily Sullivan erasing a 4-1, third-set deficit to clinch the title five games later against Toll Gate.
Theyâll remember Brooke McGreen and Ashley Kennedy surviving a slew of match points to close out their match 11-9 in a third-set tiebreaker at No. 2 doubles or Olivia Scalora dominating her match at No. 1 singles after falling to the same opponent in three sets just nine days earlier.
COVENTRY â The Coventry and East Greenwich girls soccer teams walked off the field Thursday afternoon with a share of the points, but the reaction to the preceding 80 minutes couldnât have been more different.
BARRINGTON â Over the last two years the Coventry tennis team has won 26 regular-season matches, two playoff matches and a Division III-West title.
WESTERLY â If the Coventry boys soccer team is going to earn a bye into the Division II quarterfinals, the Oakers are going to have to work for it.
Coventry entered last weekâs road game against Providence Country Day in prime position to earn a bye with three road games left to finish the season.
COVENTRYâFor the first 20 seconds it appeared as if the Pilgrim football team would have a shot of hanging with Coventry Friday night.
Just 47 seconds later, the Oakers put the lowly Patriots in their place as Michael Nolanâs 44-yard touchdown run opened the flood gates on a 40-6 Coventry victory.
WOOD RIVER JCT.âAt the beginning of the season Chariho field hockey coach Johannah LaFountain feared her team may be in store for a building year.
âEverybody thought â including myself â we were going to be in for a building year,â LaFountain said. âIâm just so, so proud of them.â
