    On and off court, Lewis' Jamie Johnson passes all the tests

  • Defending state champion Providence to be keyed by pitching, defense

    It's going to be a little different type of Providence team than the one that slugged its way to the Class 4A state championship a year ago. Behind Dylan Rosa and Phil Kunsa, the Celtics could rely on the long ball in 2014. Not this season. The...

    Spring training: Chicago White Sox 2, Dodgers 1
    ON THE MOUND: Joe Wieland did enough to still be considered a candidate to replace the sidelined Hyun-Jin Ryu in the rotation, as he limited the White Sox to two runs and nine hits in five innings. Wieland didn't walk any batters. Bullpen candidates David...
  • Brother Rice enters season as top-ranked boys track team

    Winter track practice at Brother Rice takes place in the hallways, not unusual for a team without an indoor facility. What could be special for the Crusaders this year is what happens outdoors. A state championship likely is out of reach, and Brother...
