Also congrats to both of our volunteer assistant coaches for getting both of these guys to where they are today!
Peter Sherman is Alex's coach in the Weight Throw. He is a former hammer and weight thrower from Middletown. He competed Division 1 track and field at URI. He coaches our girls and guys weight throwers, and ever since he's been around, the weight throw and hammer school records have been completley shattered every year. He is part owner of Newport County Propane and is the uncle of Becky Cousens.
Arthur Tyler is Nick's coach in the Pole Vault. Arthur is a former PHS athlete and the current 300 intermediate hurdle school record holder. He has a tremendous passion and love for the sport of track and field and specifically the pole vault. Arthur has become a student of the sport and is now transferring his knowledge onto his younger brother Nick. Arthur is a junior at Quinnipiac College in CT. He comes home on weekends and over break to coach our pole vaulters at Portsmouth.
