CUMBERLAND LINCOLN EDITION | VALLEY BREEZE | OCTOBER 15-21, 2020 SPORTS & RECREATION 17 BREEZE PHOTOS BY ERIC BENEVIDES The Lincoln High boys' and girls' cross country teams turned in solid efforts last Saturday afternoon in their Northern Division meet against Smithfield, Ponaganset, and Davies at Deerfield Park's 3.1-mile course in Smithfield. In the girls' race, Lincoln freshman SEQUOIA DROLET, top left, took second place out of 34 runners in a time of 22:56, and junior CARSON COLE, top right, finished sixth in 24:20. In the boys' race, the Lions, who evened their record at 3-3 by defeating Ponaganset and Davies, were led by junior BEN MARTINS, right, who placed eighth out of 38 runners in 18:29. LHS cross country teams shine at Deerfield Park in Rhode Island, and I'm very happy (the RIIL) didn't." "Honestly, I thought we were going to mimic (Massachusetts), and I was really pleased to hear that the Interscholastic League wanted to keep the integrity of the game and let the kids play with little modifications," Miguel said. "I know that there's debate about what's appropriate and what's not, but I do know that teams had been playing against each other in different states all summer, and without incident." As for the modifications? Wearing masks is obvi- ously the biggest one, teams are playing 15-min- ute quarters instead of the traditional 30-minute halves, "and we have to maintain some distance between each other," added Gendreau. "If the girls are outside 10 feet on the field, they can take a mask break and pull their masks down, but they still have to wear their mouth guards and goggles, and of course, they can't share water bottles." The Lions, who edged the Clippers in last year's Division II quarterfinals, 2-1, to return to the D-II semis, are fielding a very young team this season, with just three seniors on their 18-player roster. But those 12-graders, Drew Swanson, Olivia Mendes, and Lauren Rose, are the team's captains and led the way defensively in last Friday's win over the Clippers. "They're great leaders on and off the field and they're very versatile players who are giving 110 percent," said Miguel, who also has two Second- Team All-Division players, junior midfielder Grace Miguel and sophomore midfielder Kelsey Smith, back from last year's team. "Those three did a wonderful job today, kind of anchoring our defense, and I was just thrilled with the team effort." "We always know that when we play Cumberland, they're going to be a well-coached, well-skilled team," the head coach added. "They bring great competition, and that's what we expect." The Clippers will also be led this season by their three captains, senior Sydney Kell and juniors Jenna Hooper and Sophia Ziniti, and "they're really great kids," Gendreau said. "They're good players and they do a great job leading the team. I know the girls look up to them, and they play hard all the time." The Clippers will return to action next Monday with a 3:30 p.m. game in Warwick against Pilgrim. The following afternoon at 4:45 p.m., the Lions will also be on the road, taking on South Kingstown at Curtis Corner Middle School.
