DeLiberis hurls Oakers to win

May 3, 2013

PAWTUCKET — The offensive artillery the Coventry softball team brought out in its blowout win over La Salle last week was no where to be found Tuesday afternoon at Slater Park.
As it turned out, the Oakers didn’t need much offense against Division I neophyte Tolman because senior pitcher Kerrie DeLiberis looked a lot like the DeLiberis who pitched the Oakers to last year’s state final.

Offense powers Coventry to upset

May 3, 2013

EAST GREENWICH — Coventry baseball coach Leo Bush knew he team was better than the 1-6 record the Oakers brought into Monday’s Division I-South road game against East Greenwich.
The young Oakers proved their coach right.
After they gave up two more first-inning runs – a re-occurring theme for Coventry – the Oakers exploded for 11 runs against East Greenwich lefty starter Jake Moss and relievers Kyle Matus and Andrew Miner. Erik O’Connell had three hits and three runs, while Shaun Vigeant hit a three-run double in the sixth inning to lead the Oakers to an 11-8 upset victory.

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.”
