GATOR'S PUB From Page 17 Competing for the Woonsocket- based Ocean State Hammerheads throwing club, Robinson-O'Hagan fouled his first two attempts, with his first foul coming on a throw that went over 65 feet, Piette reported. But on his third attempt, Robinson- O'Hagan unleashed a throw of 60-10¼ that matched his school record, and on his next throw, he etched his name into the R.I. record books. After delivering a throw of 57-1½ on his fifth attempt, Robinson- O'Hagan wrapped up his perfor- mance with a superb throw of 60-3. "I think he has the potential to be a 68-70 guy," added Robinson- O'Hagan's throws coach, Marc Piette, who was unable to attend last weekend's meet. "The sky's the limit on this guy. The kid is just a transcen- dent talent. He's just good at every- thing. I think he's going to do some really amazing things, and when he's a senior, he's going to be taking down some scholarship offers from some serious people." And that wasn't all. Robinson- O'Hagan also participated in the discus and set another school record by airing out an 162-foot throw. That broke the old mark, which had been established in the early 1990s by Jamie Laforest, by 4½ feet. At the Throwhawks Mini Meet that took place on the weekend of June 19-21, Robinson-O'Hagan won the shot put with a throw of 58-10¼ and finished third in the discus with a throw of 155-3. He also took part in the 12-pound hammer throw on the final day of the event and placed fifth with a throw of 202-4. Two of his Hammerhead teammates also grabbed spots in the top five, with Woonsocket senior-to- be Logan Coles winning the event with a throw of 229-10 and recent WHS graduate Jesse Houle, who will be taking his talents to Ohio's Walsh University this fall, finishing fourth with a throw of 211-6. Robinson-O'Hagan's throw in the hammer moved him into ninth place in the national rankings, "and now he's seventh (in the nation) in the (outdoor) shot put," added Piette, who added that Robinson-O'Hagan ended the indoor season ranked 11th in the nation in the shot put and 16th in the weight throw with a throw of 69-11¼. "Tarik's work ethic has just gotten so much better," continued Piette. "The dedication is amazing. He's very much self-intrinsically motivated, and that's the type of athlete that you can't really hold back. When they want something that bad, they go out and they get it." Coles, meanwhile, jumped into second place in the national rank- ings with last month's throw, and Houle also moved into sixth place. Defending national champion Trey Knight, who hails from Ridgefield, Wash., leads the country with a 261-7 throw. STATE RECORD From Page 17 ROBINSON-O'HAGAN Free COVID Tests All Immigration Statuses.
