TEAM PLAYER: North's Brady more than just one of the guys

February 27, 2014

NORTH KINGSTOWN—Senior night.
For nearly every high school athlete, it’s the one event that always leaves a lasting impression.
It was certainly a special night Tuesday for the eight seniors on the North Kingstown boys basketball team – Jake Mansfield, Spencer Bode, Grant Gillis, Chris Lenox, Evan Gaudreau, Isaiah Butler, Kellen Coleman and Zac Brady. But for Brady in particular, it was a momentous occasion.

REBELS RISING: SK beats NK in Overtime

January 30, 2014

NORTH KINGSTOWN—South Kingstown seniors Mary Eden and Mary Matthews combined to take 10 foul shots in the final minute of regulation and overtime in Wednesday night’s girls basketball game at North Kingstown.
And their coach didn’t see a single one of them.
“It was just too stressful,” first-year SK coach Amanda Varone said. “I couldn’t watch. I’m also very superstitious, so when I didn’t watch, we made them.”

NK Boys capture Southern Division title

January 30, 2014

PROVIDENCE – It’s official; North Kingstown’s boys indoor track team is definitely a contender for the state championship.
With the times they put up during Saturday’s Southern Division Championship at the Providence Career and Technical Academy, there’s certainly reason to put them in the running for state champs.
The Skippers blew the division away with a final tally of 163 points, coming in first over Chariho’s 99 and Rogers with 42.
Not only did North take the division, the Skippers took first in nine out of the 14 events that were scored and earned points in every one.

East Greenwich takes silver at divisions

January 30, 2014

PROVIDENCE – The East Greenwich boys indoor track team held its own at the Suburban Division Championships Saturday at the Providence Career and Technical Academy.
Coming in second place with 75.5 points, 20 points ahead of West Warwick, the Avengers scored where they would have expected given their daunting Hendricken competitors. The Hawks won by a landslide with 223.5 points.

Chariho is second in Southern Division

January 30, 2014

PROVIDENCE – On paper, it looks like the Southern Division Boys Indoor Track Championships was a slaughter delivered by North Kingstown.
Sometimes looks can be deceiving though, as Chariho put up a mighty fight and more than earned their second place rank. The Chargers may not have clinched first at the Providence Career and Technical Academy on Saturday morning, but they put impressive distance between themselves and the rest of the field.
Chariho tailed North’s 163-point win with 99 points of their own, while Rogers finsihed in a distant third place with 42 points.

SK falls off pace with Cranston East

November 20, 2013

WAKEFIELD – As 2013 draws to an end for the South Kingstown football team, the casual observers will never get the full story for the Rebel’s season just by looking at the raw numbers.
On the surface, the Rebels are 2-6 in Division I (3-6 overall) and on the wrong end of the standings. A handful of plays, however, can swing the fate of a football team. To come so close, yet end on the wrong side has been South’s plight this fall and Friday night’s 40-19 loss to Cranston East was no different than many of the others the Rebels have suffered through this season.

November 20, 2013

Joe Trainer’s five-year run as the head football coach at the University of Rhode Island came to an end Monday morning when the 43-year-old was released from his contract with one year remaining.
