Hometown Sports Hero: Alva Hicks

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — This week’s Cardi’s Hometown Sports Hero is Alva Hicks.

The Classical High School senior currently holds the nation’s best mark in the 20-lb weight throw, and is coming off an outdoor season that saw her set a new state record in the discus throw while also taking home the gold in the shot put.

Hicks is hoping to help the Purple take home their second indoor state title in three seasons, while also aiming for a repeat of their outdoor crown.

A standout in classroom, Hicks will continue her track career at Wake Forest University.
