WOONSOCKET -- It wasnâ€™t that long ago, June 3 to be precise, that then-Woonsocket High junior Kaylnn Pitts took the jumping events at the R.I. Outdoor Track and Field Championships at Brown Stadium by storm.
She not only won the triple jump with a leap of 37-4 Â¾, but also took third in the high jump (5-3) and teamed with Jasmine White, Marrisa Gelinas and Latoya Dythe to gain fourth in the 4 x 100-meter relay (50.67).
Pitts finished 10th in the long jump (16-1), but that was one placement sheâ€™d rather forget.
If the end game was to create a specific website that shines light on Rhode Island high school athletics, then Tommy Dâ€™Angelo succeeded.
Wish to know which school has captured the most championships in R.I. Interscholastic League history? Dâ€™Angeloâ€™s vision and ultimate creation â€“ www.rihssports.com â€“ contains the answer along with the exact amount. The tally extends to every school thatâ€™s ever won a title.
