1953 Pic­tured is the Premier Thread nine that cap­tured the

Black­stone Val­ley Lit­tle League cham­pi­onship. The team mem­bers are Steve Cal­abro, Den­nis Ford, Ted Crow­ell, Ar­mand LaChance, Henry Du­gan, Mike Camp­bell, Jackie Nixon, Bill Aser­melly, Leo Her­oux, Bob Dia­mani and Ed An­der­son. The champs are man­aged by Wal­ter (Sandy) Sandrowski and the bat­boy is Doug Sandrowski.

1963 Frank Geisel­man, a se­nior tak­ing his first crack at foot­ball, is the top re­ceiver among school­boys in the Black­stone Val­ley as the big end has hauled in 13 passes for 271 yards and one touch­down, while end Leroy Cooney of Cum­ber­land is sec­ond with nine catches and 169 yards and is the leader in touch­down re­cep­tions with four. Sturdy lit­tle Ron De­meu­le­naere, Saint Raphael Academy half­back, is the top ground gainer with 163 yards in 28 car­ries, while Greg Mon­teiro of Tol­man is run­ner-up with 150 yards in 25 tries. Cum­ber­land’s Bernie Nor­ton, who isn’t even a reg­u­lar of­fen­sive back, is the leader in yards gained per carry with an 11.2 av­er­age (101 yards on nine car­ries).

1973 Pawtucket West, led by Art Mo­raira and Mario Fer

nan­des, erupted for four sec­ond half goals to beat Tol­man 6-2 in the first-ever soccer game played be­tween the two Pawtucket schools. Fer­nan­des tal­lied three goals, Mor­eira two and Idlede­fonso Vas­con­ce­los found the net for the Rangers, while Del Rainho ac­counted for both of the Tigers’ goals. The win was the fifth straight for the un­de­feated West­ern­ers, while Tol­man dropped to 1-1.
