Injuries are already taking their toll on EG girls soccer

August 29, 2013

Last fall was a year beset with injuries for the East Greenwich High School girls soccer team. In the five proceeding years, they customarily finished the regular season in second and made deep runs into the playoffs each year, but as a number of starters went down with a variety of injuries throughout the season, the Avengers took a step back in 2012, finishing the regular season tied for eighth place at 6-4-4, managing just one win in their final five games and losing in the preliminary round of the playoffs.

Spikers want to build on success

August 29, 2013

A highly competitive team in a highly competitive division, the East Greenwich High School girls volleyball team faired well in their first regular season playing in Division II last fall. They posted a 15-3 record, lost fewer games than any other team in the division (16) and ended in a five-way tie for the division’s best record.
Seeded third headed into the playoffs, the Avengers made a run to the semifinals, where the magic of 2012 ran out and they were swept by eventual state champion Exeter-West Greenwich. A disappointing end to an otherwise brilliant season.

Chargers hoping to make return to postseason play

August 29, 2013

The Chariho boys soccer team hasn’t had a winning season since capturing the Division I Championship in 2009 and the past two years have been tough ones for the Chargers.
On the heels of a 3-13-2 season in 2011 the Chargers didn’t fare any better last fall, turning in a 3-11-0 record at season’s end.
Chariho’s struggles could very well be coming to an end though as this year’s team features 14 seniors and slew of other talented, veteran players.

Chariho picking up where it left off

August 29, 2013

Last season was a giant leap forward for the Chariho girls soccer program.
After making an improbable run for Division II Championship in 2000 – with a .500 regular season record no less – the Chargers returned to the playoffs with a sub .500 record the following year.
From there Chariho spent the next decade toiling at the bottom of the division through three and four-win seasons until moving down to Division III in 2012.

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.
