5 THINGS: A Bit Later, But Just As Five Thingsy

A look at the playoffs, and other events, in today’s Five Things.

Here are the (more than) Five Things for Tuesday (not Monday), May 29, 2012:

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.
  • In the Division III boys’ lacrosse playoffs, No. 2 Narragansett hosts No. 3 Toll Gate at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday.
  • In the Division II girls’ lacrosse playoffs, No. 2 Narragansett hosts Tiverton at 4 p.m. Wednesday.

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 of the Center meets every Tuesday at 10 a.m.

The business of government business. The South Kingstown Town Council at 6:30 p.m. Shockingly, it’ll be at town hall. /notshocking

Donate to the book sale! The Friends of the Maury Loontjens Memorial Library are accepting donations for their annual book sale, which takes place on June 8 and June 9. Donations are being accepted during normal business hours. For more info, click .

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.greenwell@patch.com 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.

The Narragansett Mariners will host a first round baseball play-off game at Sprague Field at 4;00 PM , Wednesday 5/30. It's not tennis or lacrosse but Go Mariners

To shed a little more light, the Mariners are seeded 5th of sixteen Division II teams and will play Juanita Sanchez in Wednesday's clash.

Thanks for the info, Mike! They must have snuck the baseball brackets up at some point this weekend when I wasn't looking; I had the lacrosse and tennis brackets bookmarked because they were done Friday morning, but not baseball and softball.

The Independent also has a nice shot of coach Andy Chang and Derick Yang celebrating after the tennis championship on its Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/scindependent
