LINCOLN – In a playoff match that drew plenty of local interest, the Lincoln High field hockey earned a return trip to the Division II semifi- nals on Monday night by defeating neighboring rival Cumberland, 2-1, at the Lions' Ferguson Field. The Lions, who are 8-6-1 and enjoying their first winning season in nine years, was scheduled to face the regular-season champion Wheeler School on Wednesday night at Cranston Stadium. Wheeler edged the Lions by a 2-1 score in their last regular-season meeting on Oct. 7. The winner of that game will take on the other semifinal-round contest between the Lincoln School and South Kingstown in Sunday's 2:30 p.m. championship game at Bryant University. Sophomore forward Mia Bauzyk supplied the heroics for the Lions by scoring the game-winning goal off senior forward Jennah Saqib's second assist of the game with 3:20 to play in the contest. That was Bauzyk's second straight CUMBERLAND LINCOLN EDITION | VALLEY BREEZE | OCTOBER 31-NOVEMBER 6, 2019 SPORTS & RECREATION 23 Bauzyk's late goal helps Lions get past Clippers Lincoln field hockey team enjoys finest season since 2010, earns return trip to D-II semifinals CHS Athletic Hall of Fame induction ceremony is Nov. 29 at Wright's Farm CUMBERLAND – The Cumberland High School Athletic Hall of Fame plans to induct six outstanding individuals and five state championship teams from its Class of 2019 on Friday, Nov. 29, at Wright's Farm.

The Class A meet saw the Clippers place third in the girls' meet and fourth in the boys' meet, and in the Class B meet, the Lincoln boys' squad also took sixth place. Two more outstanding perfor- mances took place in the Class C girls' meet, as Cumberland resident and St. Raphael Academy junior Rachael Mongeau repeated as the race's champion in a time of 19:01.27 and Blackstone Valley Prep sopho- more Lucy Noris took second place in 19:25.91. In the Class A girls' meet, Cumberland junior Olivia Belt took fourth place in 19:37.07 and junior Bailee Brown (12th place, 20:54.50), freshman Grace Carr (14th, 21:00.50), and senior Shakira DePina (19th, 21:17.14) also cracked the top 20. The good news continued for the Clippers when junior Elizabeth Pickering (21:43.10), senior Adah Anderson (21:44.80), and sophomore Chloe Jacinto (21:51.87) swept the 24th through 26th places. Cumberland scored 73 points, which was only 13 behind North Kingstown and 18 behind eventual champion La Salle, which seized four of the top nine places. The 73 points is Cumberland's best total since 2002, when the Clippers matched that num- ber to take second place behind N.K. In the boys' race, three Cumberland runners placed in the top 10, but two were from La Salle, as junior Jack McLoughlin placed fourth in 15:43.17 and sophomore Jack Casey finished eighth in 16:11.29. The Clippers, who scored 91 points – their lowest point title in four years – to finish behind La Salle (22), Bishop Hendricken (41), and N.K. (84), was led by sophomores Henry Dennen, who grabbed 10th place with a personal-best time in 16:15.09, and Ethan Carpenter, who placed 15th in BREEZE PHOTO BY ERIC BENEVIDES Cumberland High junior OLIVIA BELT enjoyed a stellar meet at last Saturday afternoon's Class A championship meet at Ponaganset High.
