Avs had Quakers reeling in 2nd half

September 14, 2013

EAST GREENWICH—Could the East Greenwich field hockey team hang with defending Division I Champion Moses Brown?
That was the question the Avengers sought to answer Tuesday night as they hosted the Quakers and that answer as the Avs walked off Nick Carcieri Field was a resounding yes.
“They’re the state champs so that’s how you measure yourself,” EG coach Deb McMullen said. “It was good to see that we were right there and have a chance to go far.”

East struggles in win over Skippers

NORTH KINGSTOWN – A win is a win. They all count the same in the end of the day, so doing what must be done to get the win is important.
The wins have been there early in the season for the East Greenwich girls tennis team, who have opened their 2013 season with three straight following Monday’s 5-2 victory at North Kingstown.
When you are a team with expectations as lofty as the Avengers, however, sometimes the end result can be overshadowed in the wake of how the match was won.

EG bested by a matter of inches

September 14, 2013

COVENTRY — When discussing why his team struggled to reach the Division II playoffs last season, Coventry second-year boys soccer coach Jamie Cotnoir bemoaned the amount of one-goal defeats his team suffered.
Through the first two games of the new season it appears the Oakers’ luck in close games has improved.

Avs primed for strong campaign

September 14, 2013

BURRILLVILLE – In recent years, the East Greenwich High School boys cross country team has established themselves as one of the premier programs in a state that is becoming more well known for producing quality distance runners. It is a level of success that culminated last fall with their second straight Class C title, third in the past five years, and a finish as the top public school in Rhode Island.

ON CAMPUS: Dubee an All-Patriot pick

September 14, 2013

Nick Dubee is ready to have another standout season with the 1-1-2 Navy men’s soccer team. The senior from Carolina (Chariho) entered this season having played in 52 games with 37 starts for the Midshipmen. A defender, he’s started all four games this season. The team has given up five goals in four games.
“Nick’s biggest asset is the fact that he is extremely athletic,” coach Dave Brandt said. “He is one of the fastest and most powerful kids in the Patriot League.”

XC teams moving on after graduation losses

September 14, 2013

BURRILLVILLE – It is the inescapable fate of any good high school team.
There is inevitable roster turnover that comes at the end of each season with the loss of the graduating class. The boys and girls cross country teams at Chariho, however, did not lose just key pieces after last fall.
With the graduation of two of the best runners the school has ever seen in Jake Kilcoyne and Bryce Kelley – not to mention standouts on the girls side in Liz Hansen and Abby Dandurand – the Chargers come into 2013 with some major shoes to fill.

Chariho, EG tune up for season

September 14, 2013

SOUTH KINGSTOWN—As far as first rehearsals go, things went about as well as could be expected for the Chariho and East Greenwich football teams in their Injury Fund scrimmage at Curtis Corner Middle School Saturday.
Both squads left the 24-minute game – a 21-14 Avenger victory – feeling similarly, with plenty of room for improvement yet satisfied with the positives.

First rehearsal for SK, ’Gansett

September 14, 2013

SOUTH KINGSTOWN—For the South Kingstown football team Saturday’s Injury Fund contest with neighboring Narragansett was an opportunity to get back to the basics.
“We’ve been working hard all summer on the basics and we came out here and didn’t do anything too flashy, just ran our basic stuff and we need to harp on the things that can hurt you,” SK coach Eric Anderson said.
“Blown coverage, missing blocks, missing assignments, not being where you’re supposed to be, not being lined up correctly. Those are the things we’ll harp on Monday in film session.”

Rebels get first victory at Chariho's expense

September 14, 2013

WOOD RIVER JCT.—Good luck to the six girls volleyball teams stuck competing in Division I-South this season because they’re going to need it.
As expected, Coventry appears to again be the team to beat after getting off to a hot start with two straight three-set victories over South and North Kingstown, but the Oakers don’t look like the same team that flat out blew everyone out of the water at season’s end last fall.
Prout looks to have taken a step back but is still very competitive, Chariho will once again be tough and NK and SK have greatly improved from last season.

Rams hang tough, still fall to Stony Brook at Meade

September 14, 2013

KINGSTON—Generally speaking, there’s never much to feel good about after suffering a 24-0 loss.
Good wasn’t the word University of Rhode Island football coach Joe Trainer used to describe how he felt after his Rams’ loss to Stony Brook Saturday by that score, but the fifth-year URI coach did seem optimistic after watching his team play.
“That was a difficult loss against a very good football team,” Trainer said. “They beat our champion last year pretty good, they kicked their butts in the first round of the playoffs [in] Villanova and we knew we were going to have our hands full.
