Bulldogs take bite out of Chargers

September 17, 2011

WESTERLY — The Chariho football team's league opener was a tough one under the lights at Westerly High School as the Bulldogs, in front of a raucous crowd, took down the Chargers, 16-0, on Friday.

Chariho was held to just 50 total rushing yards on the night against a very physical, very experienced Westerly front seven all game long.

The Chargers also had a pair of fumbles - one in each half - that halted potential scoring drives and turned the momentum over to the rival Bulldogs.

CRANSTON – All the West Warwick football team needed Friday night was four good quarters; the result on the scoreboard meant less than how the team played in their season-opening, non-league game against Division I’s Cranston East.
The Wizards got both.
After going 3-7 last season, West Warwick was out to prove it is a much improved team; Friday against Cranston East, the Wizards were clearly the better team as their defense took the Thunderbolts’ running game completely out of the books and the offense played smart football in a 33-14 win.

Heading back to China, Beisel happier than ever

August 10, 2011

Sometimes, even when you're staring at the bottom of a pool, a change of scenery still makes waves. For Saunderstown-born Elizabeth Beisel, 18, a member of the US Women's Swimming and Diving Team, such change has meant an up-shift of gears.

Indeed Beisel, a 2010 graduate of North Kingston High School who is currently competing at the FINA World Championships in Shanghai through July 31, recently completed her first year of school as a Gator at the University of Florida, where the already-energetic Rhode Islander injected even more life into her swimming career.

WARWICK – Joe Hassett is usually the most famous player in the field when he takes part in a Rhode Island Golf Association event. After an eight-year NBA career that including a title with the Seattle Supersonics in 1979, Hassett – the radio color man for Providence College basketball – has earned the honor.
At this week’s 28th Rhode Island Stroke Play Championship, however, Hassett knew where he stood in the pecking order.
“I’m a distant No. 2,” he said. “Mike Schmidt, he was a Hall-of-Fame player and was a great player to watch.”

Some people say you can’t always believe what you see on television.
In one case involving a local golfer, those people would be right.
On July 14, WPRI Channel 12 and its affiliate, WNAC Fox 64, showed highlights of North Kingstown resident and former Skippers’ golf star Samantha Morrell and her opponent Ali Prazak putting on the 18th hole at Laurel Lane Golf Club in West Kingston in the finals of the Ocean State Women’s Golf Association championship match in its nightly sportscast.
Problem was, what viewers saw never happened.
