PAWTUCKET – The Shea High boys’ basketball team defeated St. Raphael Academy, 60-39, last Saturday night to claim its fourth straight Donaldson-Lynch Memorial Basketball Tournament championship at the Boys & Girls Club of Pawtucket.

And this year, something unique happened. Shea’s new head coach, James Sorrentine, not only experienced the thrill of winning a tournament title as a head coach, but he also captured the championship as a player for the Saints in the early 2000s and was named the tournament’s Most Valuable Player in 2003.

  • Those with accusations or allegations that can’t be proven, or that try to build a negative narrative about one person or entity over time through a clearly coordinated campaign. If you believe the backstory really needs to be shared, send us a letter to the editor or a story pitch with your name and contact information.
  • Those with outright lies or falsehoods.
