     The K. of C. meet is also the starting point for the league’s hammer specialists. In the girls’ event, Classical’s Marthaline Cooper was triumphant with a distance of 146 feet, 2 inches (44.55 meterds). Barrington senior Charlie Ionata copped the title in the boys’ 12-pound throw with a toss of 222-4 (67.76). Ionata finished second in the state last spring.
                                 Huskies’ Tavares ready for spring debut
     Karina Tavares, the Mt. Hope freshman distance runner, enters her first season of outdoor track having been successful in both cross country and indoor track. Last November, Tavares finished fifth at the State Championship, good for an All-State berth. Indoors this past winter, she made her presence known on the PCTA oval.
     On Saturday in the K. of C. girls’ freshman mile, Tavares came in a close second with a time of 5:37.2. Narragansett’s Marissa Mc Phillips won the race in 5:36.2.
     “I felt good,’’ said Tavares, who’s 14. “I kept the lead the first two laps. I like the mile; it’s a good race. I like longer distances.
     “I’ve done pretty well,’’ she said. “I think I’ve improved with eac race. Last week [in a dual meet] I ran the 800 for speed work.’’
     Tavares expects to run the 800, and extend to the 1500 and 3000 meters. “There’s a lot of good competition,’’ said, naming North Kingstown’s Beth Nunnery and Cumberland’s Amy Laverty as examples. (Laverty finished fifth on Saturday with a time of 5:45.4).
     Oval Notes: Hope High sophomore Quashira Mc Intosh had some fun in the Caribbean sun last weekend. Running for the Virgin Islands team at the Carifta Games in Nassau, Bahamas, Mc Intosh clocked a personal-best 24.48 in the 200 meters; good for fifth place. As a freshman last spring, Mc Intosh set a new R.I. record for the event: a 24.67 in a + 1.4 wind at the New Balance Nationals in North Carolina. Her time in Nassau was run with a +2.1 wind gauge reading; 0.1 meters-per-second over the allowable (for record consideration) tailwind. Also at the same meet, Mc Intosh finished seventh in the 100 (12.29). Mc Intosh, a native of the United States Virgin Islands, also anchored her country’s 4x100-meter relay (47.44) . . . The Games involved 26 Caribbean countries, and were held at the Robinson National Stadium, which has a state-of-the art eight-lane track.
