WEST GREENWICH – Neither injuries, nor penalties, nor a slow start could beset the Exeter-West Greenwich High School football team as their quest for Division IV perfection continued at home last Saturday as the Knights overcame everything stacked against them with a third quarter explosion that buried Smithfield, 35-6.

Skippers pushed Coventry to limit

October 20, 2013

COVENTRY — The North Kingstown volleyball team pushed Coventry harder than any team has pushed the two-time defending state champions this season. But the Skippers, just like many of Coventry’s opponents, had no answer for senior middle Sam Higgins and junior outside hitter Jill Ward.
Ward went over, around and through North’s blocks all evening to finish with a match-high 18 kills, while Higgins used her speed and skill to record 12 kills and seven blocks.

NORTH KINGSTOWN – It is a good time to be a member of the North Kingstown High School girls tennis program.
The JV squad wrapped up their league title last Friday. On Sunday, the Skippers top doubles team of Lucia Bolibruch and Grace Callahan captured the state’s individual title.

“The dream season continues.”

PAWTUCKET—Not bad for a team that by their own admission was ‘thrown together’ at the beginning of the season.

“We kind of got thrown together in the mix. A lot of the partners on our team had been playing together for a few years.”

NORTH KINGSTOWN—With the 2013 girls high school soccer regular season winding into the final third of the schedule, the October 10th Division I border-rival grudge match between East Greenwich and North Kingstown may be one that foreshadows a possible playoff matchup, as one team continues to roll and the other looks to recreate itself after a key injury.

Quakers cruise past East Greenwich

October 20, 2013

EAST GREENWICH – Despite leading them in the standings, before even taking the field last Friday night, East Greenwich High School football coach John George knew his team was going to have their hands full with a potent Moses Brown Quakers attack considered by some the best in the division.
As the Avengers quickly found out when they took the to Carcieri Field, however, it was not the Quakers skill, but their sized that proved East’s ultimate downfall as they were pushed around in a 34-0 beating, their first loss of the season.

Finals weren’t enjoyable for everyone

October 20, 2013

PAWTUCKET—Sunday’s RIIL State Singles Championship between Peri Sheinin and Aleksandra Drljaca was about as entertaining of a girls tennis match as you’ll see.
Each game highly contested and each point earned.
“We’re really great players,” Drljaca said. “We both have a lot of tournament experience. A high level of intensity was really seen and it was a great match.”
For as entertaining as the level of play was though there was also an unmistakable sense of awkwardness both on the court and in the crowd.
