Prout names O'Malley boys basketball coach

August 15, 2012

The biggest move in Rhode Island high school basketball this offseason was Eric Simonelli’s departure from Prout up north to La Salle.
Replacing him wasn’t going to be easy, but first-year Prout athletic director Mike Traficante thinks the school – and the program – have their man.
After a summer of searching, Traficante told The Times Wednesday that Westerly boys basketball assistant coach Jed O’Malley will take over for Simonelli this season, beating out two other finalists for the job.

Andrade highlights field at Rhode Island Open

August 6, 2012

Rhode Island native and current CVS/Caremark Charity Classic co-host Billy Andrade joins the field of the Rhode Island Open this week for the first time in almost 30 years, RIGA Executive Director Bob Ward announced after the 29th Stroke Play Championship last Wednesday.
Andrade and the rest of the field will play at Ledgemont Country Club Tuesday and Wednesday and the top 40 plus ties come back for the final round Thursday.
Andrade tees off the 10th hole Tuesday at 8:36 a.m. with RIGA Amateur champion Charlie Blanchard and Geoffrey Fisk; the trio tee off No. 1 Wednesday at 12:51.

Randall leads youth movement at Stroke Play

August 2, 2012

CRANSTON – On the 71st hole of the 29th RIGA Stroke Play Championship, soon-to-be-47-year old Charlie Blanchard and 19-year old Jamison Randall were tied for the lead.
And with one swing from Blanchard and one from Randall, a changing of the guard took place.
Trying to avoid a playoff, Blanchard sailed a 9-iron over the green from 150 yards out while Randall identified a flyer lie in the rough, hit his approach on the green and when Blanchard couldn’t get up and down, two-putted for a one-stroke win, avenging his loss to Blanchard in the State Amateur last month.

EAST GREENWICH – The wait was worth it.
After three-and-a-half hours of baseball, the East Greenwich Junior Division All-Stars beat Narragansett 16-7 at East Greenwich High School in a game that was stopped one inning short due to darkness, moving the team to the losers’ bracket semifinal Monday against Westerly at the Trombino Complex at 5 p.m.
“We plan on going all the way to the districts and beyond,” EG coach Neil Fraden said. “We got off to a bad start but that’s behind us. We’ve got a really good team and we put a really good game together.”
It started with the offense.
