Rhode Island Classic (RI)

After a close win at the RITCA High School Invitational two weeks ago, senior Joe Velez (Classical, Providence, RI) shattered his personal best at this year’s Rhode Island Classic Invitational. The meet was scored in a  team format; each thrower received only three attempts and the best three throwers from each school had their results combined for the team rankings. Velez’s team from Classical also won the team title by more nearly ten feet. His best throw added more than five feet to his personal best from last season.

Reuben Horace (Bishop Hendricken, Warwick, RI) nearly eclipsed his new personal best from a few weeks ago by producing the second best mark and leading his team to a second place finish.

Ann Dagrin (Classical, Providence, RI) produced the top girls mark as her team took second place. Maggie Dufault (Pilgrim, Warwick, RI) and Destinee Barrette (Pilgrim, Warwick, RI) had the third and fourth best marks which was good enough to capture the win for Pilgrim.
