BHS Sports Roundup: Girls' lacrosse wins

Boys' volleyball team battles to 3-2 win over West Warwick


The Barrington High School girls' lacrosse team opened last week with a 17-9 loss to Moses Brown, but bounced back with a 9-8 win over North Kingstown.

Against the Quakers, Hope Robertson, Megan Mahoney and Annie Berkery each scored two goals while Elizabeth Lewis scored one goal and had two assists. 

Against the Skippers, Clare Gaffney scored four times and had two assists to lead the Eagles. Robertson scored three times and Caileigh Durkin made 10 saves in net.


Barrington hosted West Warwick and won 4-2. 

The Eagles offense was quiet until the bottom of the fifth when Nick Rondeau's fielders choice RBI. Then Matt Zeleznik singled and drove in the second run to tie the score at 2-2. Cabot Maher led off the sixth with a double, George Connelly's sacrifice bunt got him to third and Mike Pfeffer singled to left for the go ahead run and eventual game-winning hit.  Matt Macaluso singled, Henry Johnson's sacrifice fly and Devin Connors' single and RBI plated the insurance run. Maher pitched four innings and Collin Morowitz finished the final three.

Barrington Eagles Varsity baseball traveled to Westerly to take on the Bulldogs on Tuesday, May 9. The pitching was strong on both sides as the Eagles jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the 1st inning and held the lead all the way until the 5th. That is when Westerly tallied 2 runs in the bottom of the inning to take the lead and held on for the win over the final 2 frames.

Andrew Conaty got the start for the Eagles and went the distance, giving up just 2 runs on 5 hits with 4 k's in this complete game loss. It was Conaty's 4th complete game of the year, amongst the leaders in D2 in this category, giving the Eagles a good chance to get the win.

The Eagles offense was quiet against the visitors getting just 2 hits and no runs after the first inning. Barrington had multiple chances in innings 2-6, including 7 walks, but left 8 runners on base and failed to pad the lead. Two walks and 3 hits in the 5th by Westerly plated their only 2 runs to take the lead, and the Eagles could not answer. A rally in the sixth for Barrington ended with an out at home plate, failing to tie up the ballgame.

Cabot Maher led the Eagles with a hit and an rbi, Mike Pfeffer and Matt Macaluso also singled for Barrington.  Matt Zeleznik did his job as the leadoff hitter, getting on base 3 out of 4 times and scored the only run for the Eagles.

The Eagles, who fell to Westerly earlier in the week, have a 5-8 record.


Barrington defeated Portsmouth 8-3 last week and fell to Prout 6-5. Against Portsmouth, Alison Senechal pitched a complete game, allowing just six hits. Kaylee Feather had three hits and scored a run while Maddie Cox had two hits and scored twice.
