After battling back and forth all season, Logan Coles (Woonsocket, RI) and Kyle Moison (Lincoln, RI) continued the battle at Saturday’s Rhode Island State Championships. Moison blasted out 219 foot throw to take a big lead in round one while Coles was on thin ice with two fouls in the first two rounds. After securing a legal throw on his third attempt, Coles then improved to 222’11” in the fourth round. Moison improved in round five, but it wasn’t enough and Coles held on for the win. After setting a state record last week, Annika Kelly (Barrington, RI) returned to win the state title in the girl’s final. She didn’t just win, but won in style with her second best result ever, as well as the second best result in Rhode Island history, and a meet record.
