North Smithfield Blackstone and Woonsocket Edition Sports & Recreation @ JULY 23-29, 2020 WOONSOCKET – He still has two more years left in his high school career, yet Tarik Robinson-O'Hagan has already stated his case as arguably the best high school shot put thrower this state has ever produced. Four months after capturing the New England indoor championship in the shot put with a school-record throw of 60 feet, 10¼ inches that made him the first Rhode Island thrower since 1971 to surpass the 60-foot mark, the Woonsocket High junior-to-be shattered the state out- door record in that event at last Saturday's Throwhawks Mini Meet at Bowen Field in New Haven, Conn. Robinson-O'Hagan handily cap- tured the event with a throw of 62-8 that broke the old R.I. mark, which had been set 49 years ago by La Salle Academy's Lenny Rao, by seven inches. That throw came on the fourth of his six attempts in the event's finals and was his third throw that sailed over 60 feet. Robinson-O'Hagan shatters outdoor R.I. shot put mark WHS junior breaks 49-year-old record with 62-foot-8 throw By ERIC BENEVIDES Valley Breeze Sports Editor Woonsocket's TARIK ROBINSON-O'HAGAN, shown in action during last Saturday's Throwhawks Mini Meet at Bowen Field in New Haven, Conn., placed first in the shot put with a throw of 62-8 that broke a 49-year-old state record by seven inches.
