Three EGHS athletes earn All State first team honors.
A number of EGHS athletes were honored at the end of the fall season with awards from coaches and from the Providence Journal. For the second year in a row, Aleksandra Drljaca made the All State first team for tennis. The sophomore led the Avengers to their second-place finish in Division II. Junior Keri Pallister was named to the All State first team for field hockey. The Avengers field hockey team lost to Barrington in double overtime in the state finals. “It was really nice,” said Pallister. “I wasn’t expecting all those awards at the end of the season.” Pallister also was named first team All Division, as well as earning an award from the East Greenwich Pendulum.

Kelly Dolan netted a goal in the second overtime Tuesday night to lift Barrington to a thrilling 1-0 victory over defending D-1 state champion East Greenwich.
Until the day they die, every member of both teams will remember having been part of this contest. Junior Kelly Dolan netted a “golden” goal with 5:46 remaining in the second (and sudden-death) overtime period to lift the Barrington Field Hockey team to a scintillating 1-0 victory over East Greenwich in the championship match of the RIIL’s Division I state playoffs Tuesday night at Cranston Stadium. Dolan’s game-ending score came after the Eagles (16-1-2) and defending state champion Avengers (13-4-3) battled through 74:14 of scoreless, yet exhilarating play in a contest which featured spectacular defense, energetic rushes, high drama, countless heroics and endless sensational efforts, all in front of a large and emotionally charged crowd …

They will face Barrington in the state championship Tuesday at Cranston Stadium at 6 p.m.
East Greenwich Girls Field Hockey will get a chance to retain its state championship title on Tuesday, after beating Moses Brown 3-1 in the semifinals at Cranston Stadium on Sunday. EG will face off against Barrington in the championship. The two teams met one other time this season, resulting in a 1-1 tie. Barrington beat Bay View Sunday 1-0 to make it to the championship. EG beat Bay View in last year’s state final. “The game was fantastic,” said EG Coach Deb McMullen. “It was just a well-played, pretty evenly played game. ... We just, we wanted it a little more. We just were beating them to the ball a little more.” EG junior Marielle Kraft had a strong game, with two goals. “Marielle Kraft has been coming in off the bench, a secret …

Some teams are finished; others are just heating up.
Thursday, November 3, 2011
From the smoldering heat of the late days of August to the brisk afternoons of November, the East Greenwich High School fall sports teams have had a very successful season once again. As most Avenger fall sports teams head into the playoffs, others have already said goodbye to great seasons. After a loss to Woonsocket in the Division 1 state championship last week, the Avenger’s Special Olympics Unified Volleyball team said goodbye to another flourishing season. Along with the Unified team, the girl’s volleyball season unfortunately ended on Wednesday. They lost in their playoff game against LaSalle. The Girls Tennis team made it to the state finals for the second year in a row, losing to Smithfield in a tight contest. In Cross Country, …
All three goals were scored in a four-minute blitz that started about 20 minutes into the first half.
All the scoring action in EG's Wednesday night quarterfinal game against Lincoln took place in the first half, when the Avengers scored three times in just over four minutes. The damage was done; EG earned the victory with a 3-0 score and will meet Moses Brown in the semi-finals on Sunday. Lincoln, which had just lost to EG last week, came out looking strong, pushing stronger on offense than the Avengers during the first 10 minutes of play. But EG found its footing and moved the play down toward the Lincoln goal. Then the Avengers' sticks just heated up. Goals were scored by Mareille Kraft, Katie Sloat and Emily Karn, with assists by Keri Pallister, Marielle Kraft and Jamie Fugere. The defending state champions must beat Moses Brown on …

In other Avenger home action, the Girls Soccer team beat Cranston West, 2-1, and Unified Volleyball also overcame Cranston West, 3-0
East Greenwich may not have beaten Barrington, but a 1-1 tie felt pretty good for the Avengers Wednesday afternoon at Nick Carcieri Field. “We were pleased with the tie because we have lost to Barrington for years now,” said sophomore Caroline Neupauer, who scored the tying goal with seven minutes left in the game. “Words can’t describe how excited I was when I scored that tying goal.” Neupauer got the goal on a cross from fellow sophmore Jamie Fugere off a corner pass from Liz Colavita. “Caroline had an amazing performance playing one of the top players in the state from Barrington in Taylor Rideout,” said Coach Deb McMullen. “The game was encouraging ... as a benchmark to see where this team is midway through the season - Barrington is …

Avenger defense was so strong, the Skippers didn’t get one shot on goal
The rain started about the same time as the clock for EG’s home game against longtime field hockey rival North Kingstown Thursday evening under the lights on Carcieri Field. It started with a drizzle, then developed into a steady rain. But that didn’t deter the Avengers from winning handily, with a score of 3-0. EG's defensive was so effective that the action was mostly around North’s goal. In fact, that the Skippers didn’t get one shot on goal the entire game. It was a “great defensive effort,” said EGHS coach Deb McMullen. “The combination of Andie Coutoulakis, Julia Elson, Keri Pallister, Liz Colaviata and Phoebe Hughes did not allow for an NK shot on goal!” On offense, Avenger Marielle Kraft, a junior, scored one goal in the first half…
