Winslow’s Tionna Tobias soars to longest indoor S.J. long jump mark in 37 years!!!!!!

Winslow junior Tionna Tobias broke the Camden County indoor long jump record, won her first Easterns title and moved into the No. 2 spot behind Olympian Carol Lewis on the all-time South Jersey indoor long jump list Tuesday night.

Tobias jumped 19-8 1/4 to win Easterns at the 168th Street Armory by nearly a foot over Tiffany Bautista of Paramus Catholic, who jumped 18-10 for second.

Check out Tobias’s series: 19-3 1/2 — 19-5 1/4 — 19-8 1/4 — 19-5 — 18-9 3/4 — Foul.

Tobias went into the meet with an indoor PR of 18-9 and averaged 19-4 on her five legal jumps. She had the four-best jumps of the competition.

Willingboro’s Lewis set what was then not only the U.S. scholastic record but also the American women’s record of 21-7 1/2  in Dallas in 1981.

Tobias’s mark is No. 5 in state history indoors and No. 11 on the all-time New Jersey scholastic list, which includes both indoor and outdoor marks.

She broke the Winslow indoor record (and Camden County record) of 19-8 set by former teammate Cidae’a Woods by one-quarter of an inch. Woods still has a superior overall mark with an outdoor 19-9 1/4.

Tobias’s mark is also the No. 4 mark in the prestigious history of the Easterns meet, behind only Keturah Orji of Mount Olive [20-8 in 2014], Lewis [20-6 1/4 in 1980] and Noelle Graham of Taft High in New York [19-11 1/2 in 1998].

Here are some lists I put together! As always, please let me know of any omissions or corrections in the comments section. I appreciate it!

2008 … Lindsey Walsh (Lenape, N.J.), 18-  5 ¾
2013 … Cidae’a Woods (Winslow Twp., N.J.), 19- 8
2018 … Tionna Tobias (Winslow Twp., N.J.), 19-8 1/4

Oh, by the way, Tobias also ran a personal-best 8.20 in the high hurdles and placed third in the final in 8.21.

Tobias’s 8.20 is No. 6 in the state this year and No. 2 by a South Jersey hurdler. It’s also No. 15 in South Jersey history.

Pretty good day’s work!

We’ll have more on Winslow Township’s remarkable day at Easterns later, including a post on their crazy 1:39.75 win in the 800-meter relay!
