Winslow’s Tobias surpasses 19 feet for first time, moves into No. 7 spot in all-time South Jersey LJ list!

Winslow sophomore Tionna Tobias, who’s been knocking on the door of 19 feet since an 18-9 at Easterns in the winter of her freshman year, finally surpassed the 19-foot barrier Saturday as part of a double win at states.

Tobias won the long jump with a 19-3 and also won the high jump at 5-4. Her previous long jump PR was an 18-10 3/4 at last year’s Woodbury Relays, which actually only got her second behind Asia Young’s 19-2 1/4 for Holy Spirit.

She moved into the No. 7 spot in South Jersey history and No. 22 in state history.

Tobias’s season best before Saturday was 18-10 two weeks ago to win the Olympic Conference American Division title.

Tobias helped Winslow roar to the state Group 3 title, doubling up second-place West Essex by a 76-38 margin.

The title is Winslow’s sixth in school history and fifth in a row in Group 3, with the 2015 championship shared with Northern Highlands. Winslow also won Group 4 in 2004.

Only seven schools have won more state girls titles — Notre Dame (12), Pope John XXIII (12), Columbia (10), Glen Rock (seven), Haddonfield (seven), Pingry (seven) and Red Bank Catholic (seven).
