Rhode Island State Championships Results

Bobby Colantonio (Barrington, RI) finished out his last Rhode Island State Championship by taking home another win, his third state title in a row. Not only did he have less competition, but he threw even further and ended up just four feet shy of the meet record. Unfortunately second-ranked Mike Coppolino (Cumberland, RI) fouled out, which opened the door for Jared Briere (Woonsocket, RI) to take silver and teammate Dilyn Cote (Woonsocket, RI) bronze.

There was much anticipation around the girl’s competition as several athletes were in the hunt for the title. However Courtney Jacobsen (Toll Gate, Warwick, RI) put the competition to bed in the first round. All six of her throws outdistances the competition as she turned in one of her best performances ever. Gianna Rao (Ponaganset, North Scituate, RI) nearly hit a best to place second and Samantha Andrews (Lincoln, RI) won a close four-way battle for the bronze.
