The Feinstein Middle School girls basketball team defeated their division rival Scituate Middle School 37-22 on Thursday to advance into the final four of the State Championship Tournament.

The girls stayed poised and in control throughout the entire game. Thurstina Horton and Katie Beadoin led the way with eight points each while Kaitlin Mattera scored six points and was an ace at rebounding the ball.

The more experienced Oakers won this round of the rivalry, 3-1.
The girls’ volleyball teams from Coventry High and The Prout School staged the latest chapter in their budding rivalry in the Crusaders’ hot, humid gym Wednesday night.

Oakers make a powerful debut on the road.
Coventry rolled to a convincing win in their match over Toll Gate on Wednesday night in the Division One girls volleyball season opener for both teams in Warwick. Last year, Coventry was 13-1, making it all the way to the championship game for the first time in eight years before losing to Prout. With several returnees from that state runnerup squad, including 2010 All-Stater and outside hitter Samantha Clark, the Oakers got off on the right foot. They never trailed in throttling the Titans, 25-12, 25-8 and 25-15, in Warwick. “We were very strong in the service department and we were OK offensively,” said head coach Leo Bush. “We were off in our timing and didn’t communicate as well as well we can. We also didn’t play as fast as we are …
