Moison, Andrews shine in weight throw at USATF Nationals

NEW YORK – Lincoln High junior Kyle Moison wrapped up his outstanding indoor track and field season at last weekend’s USATF Hershey Youth National Championships inside Staten Island’s Ocean Breeze Athletic Complex, as he placed second in the 25-pound weight throw.

Competing in the boys’ ages 17-18 division, Moison delivered a throw of 71 feet, 6½ inches that was 9½ inches behind the winner, Classical High senior Jacob Furland.

Moison captured the state and New England championship in the weight throw last month.

Also taking home a medal for finishing in the top six of her event was Lincoln junior Jackie Andrews, who took fourth place in the girls’ ages 17-18 division’s 20-pound weight throw with a distance of 48-¾.
