Rhode Island State Championships (RI)

Junior Mike Gama (Bishop Hendricken, Warwick, RI) struggled in the first two rounds of this year’s Rhode Island State High School Track Championships, but he took the lead in the third round and held on to if for the remainder of the competition. Justin Nicoll (East Providence, RI) took second place and was just inches off of his personal best.

Victoria Flowers (Classical, Providence, RI) and Meaghan McGovern (North Kingstown, RI), both started off the girl’s competition with great throws. McGovern was less than a foot from her personal best, but that wasn’t enough to top Flowers, who held on for the win.
