Avengers came on strong against Middletown & Prout last week.
East Greenwich’s returning Division II Championship boy's lacrosse team started off the 2013 season with two big wins this past week. The Avengers kicked off the season on Tuesday against the Middletown Islanders under the watchful eye of a small home-town crowd braving cold temperatures in support of the team. Offense was on target in the first half, with goals scored by Captain Sam Feinberg, Alex White, Joe Madden, and Captain Matt Cruise, and another two points by Colin Bernier.

They were honored Thursday night at a ceremony at East Greenwich High School.
Bruce Mastracchio, who came up with the idea for an East Greenwich High School Wall of Honor, originally proposed a statewide hall of fame for athletes. When that proved to be too expensive, he approached the high school and revised the concept to include all the school’s graduates. And although East Greenwich is a small community, it seems to generate a lot of people who make significant contributions to society. Added to the Wall of Honor in 2012 during a ceremony Thursday night at the high school were: Angela Bertholdt Herzner of the Class of 1992, Judith A. Briggs of the Class of 1960, Rear Admiral Nevin P. Carr. Jr. of the Class of 1974, Frank Forster of the Class of 1966, Deidrda Kettelle of the Class of 1964, W. Everett Lundberg …
