Rhode Island State Championships Results

Junior Bobby Colantonio (Barrington, RI) came out on top to win his second consecutive Rhode Island state championships on Saturday and the third consecutive title for Barrington High School. Colantonio faced close competition from his teammate Adam Kelly (Barrington, RI). Kelly had won their last two meetings, but it was Colantonio who took the early lead in round one, which was good enough to secure the win. An improvement in round four extended his mark one foot to 234’7″. Kelly finish in second, and Mike Alvernaz (Barrington, RI) completed the Barrington podium sweep.

The girl’s competition was one of the closest in recent history with the top six throwers separated by just seven feet. Despite entering the competition seeded fourth, Meagan Malloy‘s (Smithfield, Esmond, RI) fifth round effort of 168’9″ ended up victorious. Lysah Russell (Classical, Providence, RI) and Courtney Jacobsen (Toll Gate, Warwick, RI) were within feet of Malloy to place second and third respectively. All three top finishers are juniors. Carly Timpson (Narragansett) finished in fourth with the exact same mark as Jacobsen but missed out on the bronze due to a lesser second best throw.
