Rhode Island State Championship November 2, 2014
It’s no secret that nationally-ranked La Salle Academy is the odds on favorite to capture the state title this Sunday at Ponaganset. But who will break the tape at the finish? Could the Rams’ D.J. Principe become the first sophomore to earn gold since Cumberland’s Jerry Bonner in 1998? Will teammate Jack Salisbury, the early-season favorite, have enough in the tank after being sidelined for nearly two months with a quad injury? How about Hendricken’s Mike Potter? Can he make his wish come true from this past summer by giving the Hawks their second straight individual champion?
La Salle Academy wins first state title since 1983 with impressive 25-43 win over second-place Hendricken.
Ram boys and girls take team titles at R.I. Cross-Country Championships.
