COVENTRY — The harsh reality for the Coventry baseball team is this: It doesn’t matter what the playoff-chasing Oakers do against I-South leaders North Kingstown and East Greenwich.
What matters for the Oakers is winning games against Tiverton, Chariho and Portsmouth to earn a spot in the playoffs.

WEST WARWICK — The West Warwick baseball team felt like it was in Division I again Friday afternoon.
After spending four years in Division I – most of them miserable – the Wizards went down to Division II hoping to find a more level playing field. That has been the case for most of the season but Friday the Wizards ran into Prout starting pitcher Spencer Stall and rest of the defending II-South champion Crusaders.

As an eighth grader, everyone told Al Georgio he was too small to play running back in high school
In high school, people said he didn’t have the size to stand up to the rigors of varsity play.
During his record-breaking senior season, few thought he would be big enough to play at the college level.
And each time, Georgio proved his doubters wrong.

WEST WARWICK — Val Kiers pitched brilliantly Monday afternoon, but the Wizards’ Division II crossover contest won’t be remembered for what the junior did in the circle, it will; be remembered for what sophomore Mikaela Grosso did with her arm and bat.
After the Wizards threw away a three-run lead in the sixth inning, Grosso made a perfect relay throw with two outs in the seventh inning to throw out Victoria Spooner at home plate to keep the game tied at 3.

WARWICK — Tuesday morning’s contest with rebuilding Warwick Vets was the perfect preparation for a Coventry softball team heading into its biggest contest of the young season.
With undefeated Chariho awaiting them Saturday morning, the Oakers produced their finest hitting and fielding display of the season. Senior first baseman Charlotte Bracken had three hits, drove in two runs and scored two runs, while sophomore Tatiana Webb hit an inside-the-park home run to lead the Oakers to a 10-2 victory.

South nine tops Chariho

April 19, 2011

SOUTH KINGSTOWN - Connor Morse threw six innings of four-hit, shutout baseball and his offense manufactured enough runs behind him as the South Kingstown baseball team beat Chariho 6-0 Tuesday afternoon.
While the score got a little lopsided late, it was a pitchers dual most of the afternoon as Morse and Chariho's John DeCataldo went through the order.
But while Morse did a good job of pitching to contact and keeping the pesky Chargers off the basepaths, DeCataldo struggled to find the strike zone late and gave up four runs before tiring in the sixth, where South tacked on two more.
