Rebels continue to develop program

August 29, 2013

Last season was an investment in the future for the South Kingstown field hockey team.
This fall, the Rebels are hoping to start collecting on that investment.
After back-to-back appearances in the Division II Championship South Kingstown made the jump to Division I in 2012, but unfortunately for the Rebels it came in a year in which the majority of their starters from the year before had graduated.

South Kingstown eyes return to playoffs

August 29, 2013

The preseason may be just a weeks old but so far South Kingstown High boys soccer coach Scott Rollins likes what he’s seen.
“This team has some young kids on it so they’re really fighting each other for playing time,” Rollins says. “This year it’s an open competition so the energy level is really high.”
Rollins is not about to predict just how good team his team will be this year – or any year for that matter – but at least making the playoffs has become the expectation at SK.

Prout hopes to contend in Div. III

August 29, 2013

After a highly successful regular season in the fall of 2012 where they finished tied for second in Division III at 10-1-3, the Prout Boys soccer team was caught sleeping in the quarterfinals and upset by sixth seeded Davies, 3-0.
It was a disappointing end for the Crusaders, one that left a bitter taste that has lingered into this fall.
With just days left before the first official match on their 2013 docket, Prout is already full bore towards making amends for the loss and improving upon those results.

Mariners trying to build on success

August 29, 2013

Like so many of the teams at Narragansett High School did last year, the Mariners’ boys soccer team enjoyed a good deal of success as they made a run all the way to the RIIL Division II Championship game.
There was a price to be paid for that success, however, as more than half the players on that 2012 squad were graduating seniors.
That is the challenge facing coaches at a small school such as Narragansett. Not just trying to figure out how to be successful and win in an individual game or season, but how to best set up their program to be consistent year after year.

Rhody football working to turn its fortunes around

August 29, 2013

KINGSTON — The University of Rhode Island football team isn’t making any excuses for what happened during a disastrous 2012 season.
The Rams went winless in 2012 and aside from a 10-point loss in the Governor’s Cup game against Brown, URI wasn’t competitive. The Rams allowed at least 30 points in nine of 11 games and only crossed the 20-point mark twice as URI went winless for the first time since Harry Truman was president.
