It was a wild weekend for Leia Mistowski, the Narragansett boys' indoor track team competes in New York City, and Prout is one of the few local teams still alive in the playoffs.
Mistowski Finishes 18th in Nation in Weight Throw While the rest of her team was still celebrating their Division II title, Narragansett sophomore and starting power forward Leia Mistowski was getting ready to board a train at Kingston Station for New York City. That’s because this year, Mistowski continued her second winter sport from last year, the weight throw. Under RIIL rules, any high school athlete is allowed to compete in one addition event in track and field meets. At the New Balance Indoor Nationals, the Narragansett sophomore finished 18th, up from her seeding spot of 30, with a throw of 43 feet, 9 inches. Mistowski said it was a personal best for her. It capped off a wild two-day stretch for Mistowski. On Saturday morning, she …

Thanks to a return to form in the second half by Abby McKanna, the Mariners are the Division II champions.
KINGSTON – Repeating the pattern from their first three playoff games, the Narragansett Mariners used a dominant second half to salt away a 51-40 win against Classical in the Division II girls’ basketball final at the Ryan Center.

Mercedes Harris finished with 10 points, two blocks and one steal, and was named the most valuable player of the tournament. Also named to the tournament team were Sahagian and McKanna, and McKanna was awarded the trophy for the player of the game.

Thanks to a stifling defensive effort, Narragansett will play for the Division II girls’ basketball championship on Saturday afternoon against the Classical Purple.
PROVIDENCE – A rugged defensive effort limited Moses Brown to just 13 second half points Tuesday night at Rhode Island College, and as a result, the Narragansett Mariners will play in the Division II girls’ basketball championship Saturday at the Ryan Center. The Mariners (21-4, 16-2 Division II-South) used their defense to turn a 21-19 game at halftime into a 55-32 rout by the final buzzer. Like their earlier playoff games against Tolman and Scituate, a hard full and three-quarters press by Narragansett left top seed Moses Brown (19-3, 17-1 Division II-North) exhausted in the second half. The proof shows up in the stat lines of Mariner guards and freshmen Chelsea Sahagian and Abby McKanna, and senior Jackie Iannucci. Sahagian finished …

The Mariners survive a physical match-up with the Tolman Tigers and will play on the Division II playoffs.
The Narragansett High School girls’ basketball team survived an intense, physical effort from Tolman on Thursday night, taming the Tigers 57-42 with a second half run after emotions boiled over at one point. Narragansett head coach Kathryn Mahoney was issued a technical foul for arguing with officials about four minutes into the second half. However, the Mariners seemed to play with a lot more composure after the outpouring from Mahoney, and outscored Tolman 28-10 down the stretch. “I don’t typically get the emotional or riled up unless there is a need for it,” Mahoney said. Depending on your point of view, the officiating crew either called a brutally tough game, or they flat out missed calls left and right. Junior center Mercedes Harris …
