Wildwood Catholic’s Rakim Coyle joins 23-foot club with best long jump by a Cape May athlete in 40 YEARS!!!!!

Senior Rakim Coyle of Wildwood Catholic went over the 23-foot barrier in the long jump in his final high school meet.

Coyle placed sixth in the Meet of Champions with a personal-bet 23-1 3/4 — best by a Cape May County athlete in 40 years. His previous PR was 22-8 1/4 from states a week earlier. He didn’t reach 22 feet for the first time until the Cape Atlantic meet in mid-May.

So from May 17 through June 9, Coyle improved his PR from 21-7 1/2 to 23-1 3/4 — MORE THAN A FOOT AND A HALF IN 23 DAYS.

Coyle’s jump is No. 2 in Cape May County history. Way back in 1974, Chris Vasser of Cape May jumped 23-5 1/4. It’s also third-best by a jumper from any South Jersey catholic school.

There’s only one place in the world where you’ll find an all-time South Jersey 23-foot long jump list, and here it is!!!
