Early Offense Propels Coventry To Division I Softball Championship Victory

So who am I picking to win the Super Bowls then? Well, I told everyone on my Instagram Show – ‘Rueby Tuesday’ – earlier this week where I broke down each division, including explaining what has to happen in D-IV in the final week of their regular season. WOONSOCKET — Balanced scoring and a pressing defense is going to be the key to the Mount St. Charles girls basketball team’s success this season. The recipe got the team off on the right start Friday night against visiting North Smithfield. “It’s definitely our current plan, but it’s 100 percent tentative,” RIIL Assistant Executive Director Tom Marcello said. “We don’t even have winter solidified as far as a start date, regular season or playoff date yet.”

If that were to happen, it would affect far more than the football season. In an interview with Brian Crandall of WJAR Tuesday, Gov. Gina Raimondo voiced concern about Rhode Island’s COVID numbers and warned that RI may have to return to Phase II if the trend continues. The first step in any plan coming to fruition would be getting football approved by the state.

I’m riding high with my preseason Super Bowl picks Ponaganset, Narragansett and St. Raphael in Division IV, III and II and I’m not picking against Ben Hurd and Portsmouth for the Division I title. Mostly cloudy with a mixture of light rain and snow developing during the afternoon. PROVIDENCE – Then there were three Class of 2023 basketball prospects from the same high school supplying the Providence Friars with a verbal commitment. SMITHFIELD – Doug Edert knew what he was signing up for. Ditto for Antwan Walker and the rest of the newcomers who are cutting their teeth with this season’s Bryant men’s basketball Bulldogs.

“It was good to hear some potential tentative plans, but obviously nothing is set in stone,” said Cumberland head coach Josh Lima, who’s also president of the RI football coaches association. “I’ve had guys already asking me what’s the schedule, who am I playing. That stuff’s been talked about, but that’s not even in the forecast now. We want to make sure we can play on those dates.” BARRINGTON — Three-game losing streak aside, the Woonsocket High football team can take away several positives from Friday night’s overtime loss to Barrington.

Illinois has also postponed football, as has New Mexico, and California, Nevada, Oregon, Washington and Hawaii are also waiting for 2021 before starting games. PROVIDENCE – Jared Bynum possesses firsthand knowledge of what it’s like to transfer into a college basketball program that’s overseen by Ed Cooley. The same holds true for Ed Croswell. LINCOLN – In a family featuring two older siblings who either went on to play or are currently playing Division I college sports, Christian Toro understood that he was the gatekeeper to an important legacy.

In the plan laid out in the initial meeting with the football committee this week — a plan which RIIL Executive Director Mike Lunney calls “fluid” — teams would practice for two weeks starting Feb. 22 and the six-week regular season beginning the week of March 8. There would be two weeks of playoffs starting the week of April 19 with the semifinal games and Super Bowls being played the week of April 26, which would mean Super Bowls potentially being played May 1, 2 or 3. With football playoffs and the RIIL Cross Country Championships eating up my entire weekend, I took Wednesday and Thursday off. That was great for my mental health and family relationships but poor for my picks column. Alaska canceled its football postseason along with all 2020 fall playoffs due to COVID-19. In Pennsylvania, Harrisburg High School – which plays in the largest classification in the state – had to forfeit its District 3 playoff game days after qualifying because of a positive COVID-19 test.

SOUTH KINGSTOWN – It was last spring and Louis Hutchinson decided to mark the occasion of inking his National Letter of Intent to join the University of Rhode Island men’s basketball program with some playful ribbing. SMITHFIELD – A Bryant University men’s basketball player didn’t join his teammates and coaches on the returning flight home Monday. Instead, third-year forward Kvonn Cramer remained in a Cincinnati hospital where he’s in stable condition in intensive care.

Cloudy with snow showers developing for the afternoon. High 34F. Winds NNE at 10 to 15 mph. Snow accumulations less than one inch.. “As things play out, we can take whatever scenario fits the rest and be ready to go,” endurance idahor Lunney said, “so we’re not reacting to things in February.” Several coaches reached by The Providence Journal confirmed the plans, but also with the addendum that there’s a long way to go between now and Feb. 22.

PROVIDENCE – Studying the stat sheet that was distributed after the Providence Friars survived Tuesday’s season opener, one could not help but be drawn to the free-throw disparity that was the prevailing factor in the narrow escape against Rider. WARWICK – Two-year realignment proposals that will cover the 2023 and 2024 spring seasons received the unanimous blessing from the RIIL’s Principals’ Committee on Athletics during this past Monday’s meeting. PROVIDENCE – For Jared Bynum, it’s a whole new ballgame regarding life as a marked Providence Friar. Snow this evening will transition to snow showers late.

The second week of the RIIL football postseason is upon us and sportswriters Brendan McGair (Pawtucket Times/Woonsocket Call) and Will Geoghegan look at all the matchups on the docket for Friday and Saturday. Officials from Sweetspot, located on Pershing Ave in South Kingstown, say the business has no plans to offer retail recreational marijuana sales in SK because local hurdles seem too high to overcome. A public hearing is scheduled Monday by the South Kingstown Town Council to discuss proposed ordinances related to the sale of marijuana. Should businesses that seek to sell retail marijuana face tougher regulations than those selling alcohol products?
