Cinnaminson’s Kamron Kobolak wins Meet of Champions discus, breaks Burlco record AGAIN, moves into all-time S.J. Top 10!!!!!

Cinnaminson senior Kamron Kobolak broke the Burlington County discus record for the third time Saturday in recording his first Meet of Champions win.

Kobolak threw 185-6, breaking his own county mark of 184-3 set at the South Jersey Group 2 sectionals two weeks ago.

His mark moves him from No. 11 in South Jersey history into the all-time top-10 at No. 9.

Before this year, the Burlco discus record was 174-4, set in 1997 by Cherokee’s Dennis Norman. Kobolak threw 177-6 at the South Jersey Invitational to break it, then 184-3 at sectionals to break it again before his 185-6 to break it a third time.

He also surpassed Norman’s mark at the Willingboro relay meet [176-11] and Group 2 states [175-13].

Kobolak did not lose a discus competition to a New Jersey thrower all year. His only loss was to Joshua Anturase of Pennsbury at the Bensalem Invitational in April. Anturase threw 160-11 and Kobolak 155-10. (Kobolak threw the shot and not the discus at Penn.)

Kobolak is only the third South Jersey Meet of Champions discus winner in the last 20 years, following Braheme Days Jr. of Bridgeton in 2013 [1996] and Nick Pulli of West Deptford in 2014 [174-5].

He’s the first from Burlington County since Greg Hardy of Willingboro Kennedy threw 169-2 to win the 1988 meet.

Technically, Kobolak is the first Cinnaminson Meet of Champions winner, but in reality he’s the second. Jon Anderson won the 1,600 in 2004 but in a travesty of justice he was disqualified and had the title stripped for interfering with Jim Wyner of Mainland Regional. He shrugged it off and placed third in the 3,200 in 9:14.98, then won the Penn Relays 5,000 while running for Army in 2008 in 13:58.23.

OK, we’ve got lists.
