Robinson-O'Hagan, Coles, Moison make their marks in SEC's weight throw

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Woonsocket’s Logan Coles, left, and Tarik Robinson-O’Hagan, center, and Lincoln’s Kyle Moison were among the top eight finishers in the 35-pound weight throw at last Friday’s Southeastern Conference Indoor Track & Field Championships at the Randal Tyson Track Center in Fayetteville, Ark.

Robinson-O’Hagan, who is a freshman at the University of Mississippi and ranked third in the nation in the weight, broke the NCAA freshman record in the event with a runner-up throw of 77 feet, six inches that was 3 1/2 inches behind the winner: Alabama graduate student, reigning national champion, and Barrington native Bobby Colantonio.

Also delivering personal-best throws were Moison, a junior at Auburn, who delivered a throw of 68 feet, 3 1/4 inches, and Coles, a sophomore at Kentucky, who aired out a throw of 66 feet, 5 3/4 inches.
