August 8, 2013

NARRAGANSETT – Even in the dead of summer, when the wins are not necessarily as important, a bitter rivalry will always show through. That was the case on Monday evening when the South and North Kingstown High School boys basketball teams met in the summer league semi-finals at Christofaro Park. The two young teams battled with neither team relenting over the game’s 40 minutes, but in the end it was North Kingstown running away with a 51-38 victory to advance to the finals.

Prout out on basket at buzzer

August 1, 2013

NARRAGANSETT—Brian Lamendola is what summer league basketball is all about.
After graduating a starting center, point guard and 1,000-point scorer Prout coach Jed O’Malley knew he’d have some holes to fill on this year’s roster.
That being said, he also knew he had significant pieces returning in Chris DiClemente, Alex DeLuca and Drew Mace – as well as a freshman who already has three Division I scholarship offers before ever playing a high school game in Tomas Murphy.
Four players do not make a team, however, and that is where Lamendola fits in.

July 31, 2013

BRISTOL – In spite of his team mashing their way to a District 3 championship, winning three of their four games in that tournament by double digits, Wickford 11-Year Old All-Stars manager Joe Walsh left the field the night of the district title match saying it would be his team’s pitching and defense that would lead them to a state title.

Gordon Greene forfeits playoffs

July 31, 2013

The Gordon Greene Post 27 American Legion baseball team has seen their share of success of late, with multiple trips to the Final Four in recent years. There was different “four” of note this summer, however. That being the total number of wins the team amassed over the course of a disappointing 2013 season, which came to an end last week.
