LINCOLN, RI (WPRI) — This week’s Cardi’s Furniture & Mattresses Hometown Sports Hero is Kyle Moison.
The Lincoln junior earned gold medals in the Weight Throw and Shot Put at the State Indoor Meet, the only athlete to take home two individual titles.
“That was a great experience, going into a big meet like that, not having won anything before, was something special,” Moison said. “And something I could share with Coach Grant and my whole team. I had great competitors and great competitions all season, so they all paid off in the end. Hard work pays off.”
Moison added the New England Weight title and finished 4th in the Weight at the New Balance Nationals, earning All-American honors. He’s planning to throw at a Division I college program and he’ll begin visiting schools this Summer.
“I’m very excited, I want to see what’s in store for me,” Moison said. “And I want to see what I can do at bigger levels. High school is nice but it would be good to be a national champion in college someday.”
