Providence RI

The USATF East Region and New England Masters Indoor Track & Field Championships had its largest entry list in the four years running at the Providence Career and Technical Academy track complex, and many competitors attending achieved good season marks in the warm and friendly facility on a frigid day outdoors.

Two throws records were broken on opposite ends of the age ranges. Gloria Krug of Philiadelphia Masters TF Association threw the 16 lb weight an age 80-84 best distance of 6.16 meters/ 20'2.5". Competing as a guest in the men's weight throw, high school senior Gabriel Arcaro (Burlington MA) spun the 25 lb ball 20.17m / 66'2.25" for a new Massachusetts state scholastic best; it bettered the 14 year old previous mark by a foot and ranks in the top 10 nationwide for the year.
