Thursday, May 24, 2012
EG Patch apologizes for the delay in posting this write-up and video about an April game between EGHS Unified Basketball team and Cranston West's unified team. The video here is from an April game against Hendricken. Thanks to coach Dave Egan for submitting the writeup and video.

They had hoped to avenge their only loss so far this season, but fell short.
The EGHS Boys Tennis team lost a close one last week, to Cranston West, 3-4. The loss — against Cranston West — was bitter for the Avengers, who were hoping to avenge an earlier loss (their only one up to that point). And it almost happened. The match was tied 3-3, with only the third doubles teams still playing. But it wasn't to be, with the doubles team of Shevy Karbasiafshar and Dylan Lo falling to Cranston West's Jason Pjojian and Chris Parnagian in a third set tie-breaker: 2-6, 6-4, 7-5. It was a tough loss for the young team, which won the DII state championship last year but lost several players to graduation. Sophomore Shiv Patel defeated Tom Morgan in number one singles, 6-0,6-0; Chris Shea has a strong win over Jay DeRobbio — 6-…

A message from the Dare to Prayer Outreach Group.
Saturday, February 11, 2012
Grant us the capacity to restore the latest long-lost virtue to join the existing list of patience, 8-track tapes, and the use of turn signals. That virtue would be tolerance. Guide us away from bullying 16-year-old girls and help us to accept different philosophical opinions. Should we succeed in ceasing to bully the aforementioned, let us at least negotiate a hard law that would ban atheists from telling bad jokes about the Pope. For we understand that the world is not always a fair place. A prayer on a school wall may be wiped away cleanly, but nasty graffiti carved into a public school desk is forever. Let us accept that the only true sign of evidence of the Almighty will be clear to all when Newt Gingrich rules as Leader of the Free …
