Velez and Foster win at Rhody Classic

Junior Joe Velez (Classical, Providence, RI) and senior Karina Foster (Bloomfield, CT) captured first place finishes at the first major invitational of the new year in Rhode Island. Both athletes were also able to win in convincing fashion, with Velez bettering runner up Kevin Conway (Westerly, RI) by more than five feet and Foster beating Amber Jones (Classical, Providence, RI) by nearly as much. While both athletes were under their season bests, Velez still ranks as the top New Englader so far this year and Foster is also in the nation’s top ten.
