KINGSTONâ€”Amidst national speculation he would be leaving the program after just one season, URI menâ€™s basketball coach Dan Hurley put an end to all the rumors last Friday when he signed a two-year contract extension that will keep him in Kingston until 2020.
WARWICK â€” Coventry baseball coach Leo Bush knew there would be days like the one the Oakers experienced Tuesday afternoon at Mickey Stevens Field against Division I-South rival Toll Gate.
COVENTRY â€” The Coventry boys tennis team has won just one match in each of the last two seasons and the Oakers might not win many matches this season, but there is hope for the squad going forward.
COVENTRY â€” The Coventry softball team could easily be 4-0 and looking down at the rest of Division I.
Instead the Oakers find themselves in the middle of the pack following Tuesday morningâ€™s gut-wrenching, extra-innings defeat to visiting Cumberland.
SOUTH KINGSTOWNâ€”The Chariho boys volleyball team has won just one of its four matches to begin the season but so far coach Doug Bliven is taking everything in stride.
As far as playoff seeding went in the Division I Tournament, no team pulled off a greater upset than the Chariho baseball team last season except maybe the Chargers themselves.
In the opening round of the D-I tourney the No. 14 Chargers upset No. 3 North Kingstown and â€“ following a 10-0 loss to Coventry â€“ eliminated the Skippers in the consolation final of their regional bracket with a second straight victory over NK.
By the time the explosions went off at the finish line of the Boston Marathon, Caitlin Wilson was already safely on a train back to Wickford Station.
She admits though, itâ€™s eerie thinking what could have happened had a few things gone differently Monday afternoon.
