WEST WARWICK — Offense might’ve carried the Coventry hockey team to a 16-1-0-1 record and the Division II-Central title.

After scoring nearly five goals a game during the regular season, Coventry has managed to score just three goals in every playoff game. It’s on the other end of the ice where teams have found the Oakers tough to beat.

SOUTH KINGSTOWN--Feelings of positivity and optimism in the relations between teachers and the school committee waned Tuesday night as teachers from across the district expressed their disappointment in the school committee’s decision to send 144 teachers non-renewal letters.

“We know the economic times are tough and we know the state aid is limited and we understand the need for flexibility, but laying off 144 teachers is excessive,” Martha Spiewak, a math teacher at South Kingstown High School said. “It is counterproductive to be so callous of the employees.”
