Pawtucket Times - - SPORTS - — By BILL MUL­HOL­LAND

1954 Jack Smith and Jeff Schofield were the only Red­jack­ets

to ac­count for in­di­vid­ual vic­to­ries as coach Max Read’s Paw­tucket East mer­men were handed a 45-30 set­back by the un­beaten UConn fresh­men swim­ming team. Smith put on a ter­rific div­ing dis­play to win this event hand­ily with his best ef­fort a half gainer, half twist which net­ted him 13.1 points. Schofield eas­ily cap­tured the 200-yard freestyle in the fast time of 2:12.5. 1964 Paul Stan­lewicz and Greg Lukasiewicz pro­vided the im

por­tant points down the stretch as Cum­ber­land’s sur­pris­ing Clip­pers, six points down at half­time, ral­lied for a 63-60 upset over de­fend­ing Class B cham­pion North Prov­i­dence in a thriller. John McVeigh led Cum­ber­land’s well-bal­anced of­fense with 17 points, Lukasiewicz sank 16, Don Heald drained 11, lit­tle Ge­orge Souza had nine and 6-foot-2 Stan­lewicz added eight. The vic­tory squared the Clip­per’s league record at 1-1 and 4-6 over­all. 1974 Melanie Fortin won two events and Cathy Smith cap­tured

one with good per­for­mances in a los­ing cause as Tol­man bowed to East Prov­i­dence 57-38 in a dual swim meet at the Tigers pool. Miss Fortin, a sopho­more, was a dou­ble win­ner for the sec­ond straight meet as she took the 200-yard in­di­vid­ual med­ley (2:26.7) and 100 but­ter­fly (1:07.5). Miss Smith, also a sopho­more, was vic­to­ri­ous in the div­ing event with a score of 152.56. Ron Velzis, Smith, Roberta Fortin and Paul Mar­cAurele tri­umphed in the 400 freestyle re­lay.
