WEST WARWICK â€” All it took was one inning for the West Warwick Wizards to erase the memories of its late regular season struggles, including a loss in the regular season finale to the Exeter West Greenwich Scarlet Knights, Wednesdayâ€™s opponent.
With the game tied at 2-2, West Warwick exploded for 11 runs in the bottom of the fourth inning to win going away 13-2 in five innings.
First baseman Richard Grenier Jr. got the rally started with a double to right, the first of eight hits in the inning.
Ever since she first picked up a golf club at the age of three, Prout sophomore Nicole Scola has spent her life developing routines that turned her from a beginner to the stateâ€™s best female golfer.
COVENTRY â€” The harsh reality for the Coventry baseball team is this: It doesnâ€™t matter what the playoff-chasing Oakers do against I-South leaders North Kingstown and East Greenwich.
What matters for the Oakers is winning games against Tiverton, Chariho and Portsmouth to earn a spot in the playoffs.
WEST WARWICK â€” The West Warwick baseball team felt like it was in Division I again Friday afternoon.
After spending four years in Division I â€“ most of them miserable â€“ the Wizards went down to Division II hoping to find a more level playing field. That has been the case for most of the season but Friday the Wizards ran into Prout starting pitcher Spencer Stall and rest of the defending II-South champion Crusaders.
WESTERLY - It was the first match of the season, but it may end up being the biggest.
The Southern Division's top three teams met up Tuesday at foggy Weekapaug Golf Club and it was Prout, the home team, coming away with the sweep, beating North Kingstown 164-165 and Chariho, 164-167, while the Skippers earned a split with the two-shot win over the Chargers.
Prout was led by Nicole Scola, the defending girls champion, who shot a 47; No. 4 Matt Costaregni carded a 41 and Nos. 2 and 3 Greg Zervos and Matt Gerlach both came in at 43.
As an eighth grader, everyone told Al Georgio he was too small to play running back in high school
In high school, people said he didnâ€™t have the size to stand up to the rigors of varsity play.
During his record-breaking senior season, few thought he would be big enough to play at the college level.
And each time, Georgio proved his doubters wrong.
NARRAGANSETT - With the gloves not working and the bats failing to do anything, things did not go well for the Narragansett softball team in a 5-1 loss to Middletown Monday afternoon.
Pitcher Hannah Lindsley threw another solid game, but her defense didn't give her much help as errors allowed most of the Islanders' runs to score.
NARRAGANSETT - The Narragansett girls lacrosse team got off to a hot start and never let up in a 12-4 win over Warwick Veterans Monday afternoon.
The Mariners scored nine times in the first half, four of those coming from junior Sam Sabetti.
With the game in control, Narragansett did a good job of playing smart with the ball in the second half and its defense kept Warwick Vets' offense quiet.
