■ Softball defeated West Warwick yesterday 10 to 1.  Shannon Ward picked up the win, allowing just 1 run on 3 hits while striking out 13.  Rogers were led by Kenzie Palmer, Jamie Ward, Lilly Bestoso, and Michaela Mathews each with 2 hits.  Ayla Newsome had a triple, while Maeve Newsome, Danielle Savage, Izzy Booth, Emma Bryan, and Shannon Ward each had a hit.   Meg Turner, Ani Murphy, Savage, and Ward all made great defensive plays for the Vikings. Today the team has senior day up at Toppa versus East Greenwich. First pitch is at 4 pm with a pre-game ceremony prior to that.

■ Baseball recognized their seniors: Jay, Alex, Hunter, Tyler, Ian and James before the start of last night's game against Central Falls. The team was trailing late when James Paiva came through late once again driving in a couple runs to tie the game. The boys were able to push one more run across to take the lead at 4-3 and that was all Alex Garcia needed. He pitched a complete game as he closed the door on the Warriors in the final inning.

■ Girls lacrosse heads back to Woonsocket this afternoon to finish a previously suspended game against Mt. St. Charles. A win would finish an undefeated regular season and claim the program's first ever division title and raise a NEW banner in the gym!
