'Tis The Season

The concentration of Middletown Islanders sophomore Devin Russ, #14 (at center in the photo above), is all too evident as he drives to the basket during a game versus Portsmouth High School in the RIIL Division-II season opener for both teams. This always high-intensity matchup between the intra-island rivals was played on Friday, Dec. 16, at Middletown’s newly renamed James L. Williams Gymnasium, where the Islanders defeated the Patriots, 53-45. (See page 20 in this edition for full story). These boys’ high school basketball teams will again be in action right after Christmas participating in the Tiverton Christmas Tournament that begins at 5 p.m. on Dec. 28 at Tiverton High School and ends the following day. Same time, same venue. (Photo by Meri Keller)
