High school sports playoff fever, catch it! A look at the upcoming games and recent results:
- South Kingstown High School won the boys’ tennis championship over the weekend, its 14th straight, defeating Bishop Hendricken 4-1. For more coverage, read a story from The Providence Journal here. On Facebook, SRIN Sports has put up some pictures, as well as a small blurb.
- In the Division II boys’ lacrosse playoffs, No. 2 South Kingstown hosts No. 7 Mt. Hope at 6 p.m. Thursday.

It’s bocce season at the Center! Curling is for freaks on ice, croquet is for the snobby Judge Smails, and horseshoes are for hicks, so please focus on the true sport of kings, bocce. The bocce club of the Center meets every Tuesday at 10 a.m.
The business of government business. The South Kingstown Town Council meets at 6:30 p.m. Shockingly, it’ll be at town hall. /notshocking

Blog blog blog blog blogggggg. At Narragansett-South Kingstown Patch, we’re always looking for new bloggers, despite our obnoxiously long name. If you’d like free exposure for your existing blog, or simply want to start writing, feel free to shoot an email to Stephen.firstname.lastname@example.org to get the process started. You can write about WHATEVER you’d like!
Book clubs, movies and tennis lessons! Have you checked out our events calendar lately? You know, it is where I get most of my information for this article. Also, as long as you have a Patch account, you can create your own events and save us some hard work. (Thanks in advance!)
Congrats, Rhode Island! On this day in 1790, “we” ratified the Constitution, the last of the 13 colonies to do so.
Finally, someone bringing dignity and class to this “wrestling” business. Happy 26th birthday to Dylan Postl, better known as 4’4” wrestler Hornswaggle.
