Hockey Cooperation Pays Off



Co-op high school sports teams have been formed across the state, comprised of student players from two or more schools. Such is the case on Aquidneck Island, where both Rogers and Middletown highs cooperate with Rocky Hill School in East Greenwich to create a hockey team that competes in the Rhode Island Interscholastic League’s (RIIL) Division II. Known as the RMR co-op, the team currently holds a slim division lead over Portsmouth High School after cruising to a 5-0 victory over that island rival (for most of the RMR players) on Saturday, Jan. 9, at the St. George’s School rink in Middletown. Pictured above is the RMR co-op’s sophomore right winger Cam Edward, #19, moving the puck into the Portsmouth zone on Saturday evening. Edward scored two goals in the game. See the story and more photos of the game on page 17. (Photo by Meri Keller) Co-op high school sports teams have been formed across the state, comprised of student players from two or more schools.
