Rhode Island Indoor State Championships

Favorites Charlie Ionata (Barrington, RI) and Marthaline Cooper (Classical, Providence, RI) both took home state titles at the Rhode Island Indoor State Championships on Saturday. Ionata won by nearly four feet with his closest competition coming from teammate Adam Kelly (Barrington, RI). Kelly, who is just a sophomore, helped Barrington complete the 1-2 sweep by adding more than a foot to his personal best with a throw of 71’6″. Carlos Mangum (Central, Providence, RI) placed third.

Cooper also had a convincing win by more than three feet. Her best throw of 56’0″ also tied her personal best. Leia Mistowski (Narragansett, RI) threw a personal best of 52’6.75″ for second place to just barely beat Cooper’s teammate Alva Hicks (Classical, Providence, RI). Hicks also added two feet to her personal best with her best throw of 52’3.25″.
