Winslow’s Tionna Tobias JUST misses 20-foot barrier, breaks overall state championship long jump record with best S.J. jump in 26 years!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Winslow Township junior Tionna Tobias shattered the all-groups state championship long jump record Friday when she won the Group 3 title with a 19-11 1/2 leap at Central Regional in Bayville.

Tobias broke her PR of 19-8 1/4, set this past February at Easterns at the Armory, and broke her outdoor PR of 19-7 1/2, set at last year’s Meet of Champions at Northern Burlington.

She leaped just HALF AN INCH from becoming the eighth 20-foot jumper in state history and only the third in South Jersey history.

Nonetheless, her jump is No. 8 in state history including indoor and outdoors marks and No. 3 in South Jersey history and the best by a South Jersey jumper in 26 years.

Tobias broke the school record of 19-9 1/4, set by Cidae’a Woods at the 2013 state Group 3 meet at South Plainfield, by just 2 1/4 inches.

She broke the overall state meet record of 19-10 1/2 set in 1984 by Rahway’s Claire Connor. That was also the Group 3 mark.

The only South Jersey jumpers who’ve gone farther than Tobias are two-time long jump Olympian Carol Lewis of Willingboro, who set the U.S. high school record of 21-7 3/4 in 1980, and Tenecia Smith of Cherry Hill East, who jumped 20-0 1/2 in 1992.

Tobias’s jump is No. 5 in the country among high school juniors, according to the MileSplit database. She’s already qualified for the USATF junior nationals later this month in Bloomington, Ind.
