34 SPORTS & RECREATION JUNE 7-13, 2018 | VALLEY BREEZE | CUMBERLAND LINCOLN EDITION rough day – our seniors graduated yesterday – but for the most part, they did well." Grivers, who was last year's state champion in the javelin, which made him the third LHS athlete in as many years to win a state title in a field event, surprisingly ended up in 18th (and last) place with a throw of 125- 11 that was nearly 40 feet short of his winning throw from last year's meet. "For the scheduled time, he had to throw the hammer and the javelin at exactly the same time, so he didn't warm up for the javelin," added Grant. "He had to take a hammer throw, run over to the javelin, change shoes, and then take two throws out of order because (the officials) fouled him on his first one because he didn't make it there. And then he had to rush back to the hammer, so that really kind of hindered him on both events." Speaking of the hammer, Moison (186-9), Grivers (186-2), and senior Michael Balestra (184-7) didn't join Doyle on the awards podium, but ended up sweeping the eighth through 10th places. On the girls' side, Lincoln was led by sophomore Jackie Andrews, who took seventh place in the shot put (34-2) and eighth in the discus (96- 11). The Lions also received top-12 finishes from freshman Riley Specht (9th place, 400 meters, 1:01.09), the 4x800 relay team of senior Julia Heroux, sophomore Abigail O'Hern, fresh- man Emily Ariza, and Specht (9th, 10:20.97), and sophomore Jennah Saqib (12th, discus, 94-5). The top six finishers in each event received invitations to Saturday's 73rd annual New England Championships at the University of New Hampshire's Reggie F. Atkins track and field complex in Durham, N.H. The New England Hammer Championships took place on Tuesday afternoon at Mount Pleasant High. The high school season will end with the New Balance National Outdoor Championships, which will take place from June 15-17 at North Carolina AT&T in Greensboro, N.C., and the Lions will have seven ath- letes compete in the hammer: Doyle, Grivers, Balestra, Moison, Andrews, senior Matt Thibaudeau, and junior Jared Hemond. Doyle (7th, 207-8), Moison (8th, 206-4), and Thibaudeau (13th, 202-3) entered this month ranked in the top 15 in the nation with throws over 200 feet. CYLAX Girls' 3/4 Blue team finishes regular season unbeaten CUMBERLAND – The Cumberland Youth Lacrosse Association's Girls' 3/4 Blue team ended an 8-0 regular season in the R.I. Youth Lacrosse League last Saturday by cruising to a 13-0 win over Cranston at Tucker Field. The CYLAX goals were scored by Luci Boccuzzi, Hayden Stansfield, Abbey Thibideau, Maddy Belanger, Sofie Sullivan, Julia Quick, and Emily Russo, and Aivah Harris and Riley Norton split time in net and teamed up for the shutout. The Girls' 1/2 Blue team also fin- ished its season with a 12-4 victory over South County, as Ella Mancuso and Hadley Henderson each notched a hat trick. Maeve Cunningham, Annie Griffin, Olyvia Labossiere, Sofia Fraioli, Jillian Henderson, and Maeve Neary also scored goals, and Ella Fraioli led the way defensively. The Girls' 5/6 D1 team was also an 8-6 winner over South County-Black, as Gwen Ross and Lynsie Olivier each scored twice, Emma Van Allen added a goal and two assists, and Maddy Fitzgerald, Maddy Rodgers, and Isabella Colitti also scored. Averie Walton, Brennah Abilheira-Cargill, and goalie Chloe Bryda were the top defensive players. The Boys' 3/4 Blue team wrapped up a 5-1-2 season by defeating Seekonk, 6-4, at Diamond Hill Park. Cole Sabourin's two goals and goalie Shane Mungovan's 10 saves led CYLAX, which also received goals from Brady DiRobbio, Cameron Slack, Brayden White, and Blake Huard. Thanks to four unanswered goals in the first quarter, the Boys' 5/6 D1 team was able to hold off Burrillville, 7-6, at Tucker Field. Evan Spencer scored twice, Gavyn Freiberger added a goal and two assists, Evan Spencer, Ryan Hornsleth, Mason Cournoyer, Sam Connell, and Wesley Gould also netted goals, and James Bruck had two assists. Coming back from a 5-2 deficit, the Boys' 7/8 D2 team rallied to a 6-5 win over NRI Green, as Derek Woods led the attack with a goal and three assists and goalies Nicholas Boisvert and Ryan Bourke teamed up to stop 10 shots. Caden Castiglia and Sean MacDonald also keyed the offense.
