Sons of Italy Throwing Championships (RI) Results

Several records fell at one of the last meets of the season. Adam Kelly (Barrington, RI), Connor Fugere (Woonsocket, RI), Courtney Jacobsen (Toll Gate, Warwick, RI) all broke meet records at the Sons of Italy Throwing Championships. However perhaps the top marks of the day came from Bobby Colantonio (Barrington, RI). First Colantonio threw a personal best of 233’03” to win the 12-pound hammer throw division. Later he set a new national sophomore class record with the 16-pound hammer with an amazing toss of 192’09”. Colantonio also had three more throws over the record to cap off a great day and great season.
