Kyle Moison (Lincoln, RI) has been steadily improving over the last month, finally taking the state lead last week. At Saturday’s Rhode Island State Championships, he continued his hot streak with an even bigger improvement. On his first attempt he added three feet to his personal best and easily held on for the win by more than six feet. Cole Hooper (Cumberland, RI) also threw a personal best for second place, as six throwers broke 65 feet. In the girl’s competition Cheyenne Figueroa (Classical, Providence, RI) also led from start to finish, with all six of her throws good enough to win. After leading the state all season, she was the clear favorite to win and came through. Annika Kelly (Barrington, RI) took second, and teammate Sydney Polando (Barrington, RI) won a tiebreaker for third over a personal best from Erynn Field (North Kingstown, RI).
