Girls’ hockey team awarded legislative grant
Three legislative grants were recently secured for youth sports organizations in Narragansett Bay communities, including a $1,000 award that will benefit North Kingstown High students. The grant will benefit Narragansett Storm, a co-op ice hockey team made up of high-school girls from Narragansett, South Kingstown and North Kingstown. The funds will be used to purchase ice time, as well as pay for training, coaching, referees and league fees. State Sen. James C. Sheehan, who represents Narragansett and North Kingstown, requested the grant during the previous legislative session.
