Furland and Cohen Go 1 and 2 in Class B hammer move to 2nd and 4th in the country

Once again another hammer thrower in Rhode Island has moved to the top of the list.

Classical High's talented sophomore Jacob Furland earned that distinction at Saturday's  Class B Championship, held in Westerly. Furland unleashed the hammer a nation No. 2 of 219 feet, 10 inches, a personal best by more than 12 feet and five inches ahead of the third-ranked thrower in the country, Nick Lane of Bowling Green (OH). Michael Feldman of Tottenville (NY) is currently No. 1 with a 232-5 best.

The Classical standout's performance wasn't the only effort that stood out. Finishing second in the event was teammate Zeke Cohen with a distance of 210-6, which is ranked fourth in the country. Saturday's event featured five over 190 feet. The next three in the final results all hail from Lincoln - Garrett Doyle (third, 197-5), Matt Thibaudeau (fourth, 194-0) and Evan Grivers (fifth, 191-10)Nation No. 2 For Classical's Jacob Furland
