Collins, meanwhile, was on a roll through the first three innings, as he struck out six batters, but things came apart in the fourth. Three walks set the stage for Mikey Laboy's blast to deep center that resulted in a two-run double, and with two outs, Everett Misto sent a base hit to left to tie the score, and Peter Ruzzo followed with a two-run double to center. "Zach was pitching fantastic until that inning," added Rioles. "We kept thinking that he was going to get the final out, but he didn't. I take responsibility for that." Navigant, which scored its final two runs in the sixth, continued to swing the bats with authority in its victory in the next game, which also saw Post 85 receive an excellent outing from Mount Saint Charles pitcher Tommy Burke. Post 29 was scheduled to host South Kingstown Post 39 on Tuesday at Smithfield High. On Saturday, the ballclub will host New England Frozen Lemonade in a doubleheader that will begin at noon in Smithfield, and it will also host neighboring Scituate Post 19 in another twinbill on Sunday at 1 p.m. POST 29 From Page 13 Hallberg cops WPI's McNulty Award as top freshman athlete WORCESTER, Mass. – The Worcester Polytechnic Institute athletic department recently honored its 20 varsity teams, which encom- passes nearly 600 student-athletes, at its annual awards banquet, and Evan Hallberg, a resident of Chepachet and a 2018 graduate of Ponaganset High, received one of the night's biggest honors when he was presented the Charles R. McNulty Award. This award is presented to the outstanding male athlete of the university's freshman class, and Hallberg, who played on the Engineers' men's soccer team, was certainly worthy of the presti- gious honor. Hallberg, who was a four-time All-Division selection during his exceptional high school career, started 16 of 18 games for the Engineers, including WPI's NEWMAC semifinal-round con- test against Springfield, as he stepped into a back line that graduated two starters from the previous season.
