North Providence Edition Sports & Recreation NOVEMBER 26-DECEMBER 3, 2019 valleybreeze.com @ NORTH PROVIDENCE – Victoria D'Errico is proof that you should never judge a book by its cover. At first sight, the 19-year-old North Providence native and Providence College sophomore business major looks every bit like a former cheerleader. And not only does she have the beauty, but she also has the brains: D'Errico was a National Honor Society stu- dent who graduated from North Providence High last year with high honors, as well as the 25th-ranked student in her senior class. But last Friday night, in the main event of the sold-out Barstool Sports' Rough 'N' Rowdy's Feast in the Northeast at the Rhode Island Convention Center, D'Errico was in the ring – not as a ring girl, but as a boxer – swapping punches with a tough opponent in Leanna "Bumblebee" Cruz from Allendale, Pa. In what many fight fans believed was the fight of the night, D'Errico and Cruz waged war in three, one- She's vicious and victorious Former NPHS cheerleader takes home N.E. championship boxing match at Rough 'N' Rowdy show By ERIC BENEVIDES Valley Breeze Sports Editor sports@valleybreeze.com VICTORIA D'ERRICO is all smiles as she is draped in cham- pionship belts after posting a split decision victory in the New England women's title match and main event of Rough 'N' Rowdy's Feast in the Northeast show last Friday at the Rhode Island Convention Center.

The latest of these involves a link between good oral care and better treatment outcomes for those suffering from substance abuse. Researchers found that, when comprehensive oral care was part of a more holistic approach to substance abuse treatment, those who had their major oral health problems addressed by a dental professional stayed in treatment approximately twice as long and had a more than 80 percent increase in completing their treatment program. Those receiving comprehensive dental care realized substantial improvements in employment and drug abstinence, as well as a dramatic decrease in homelessness. The importance of good oral health is far- reaching and touches many aspects of the body's overall health.
