Mariah Hubbard, a Monmouth junior from Absegami, sailed 39-3 1/4 in the triple jump Friday at the Penn State National Invitational.
Hubbard came within 3/4 of an inch of her lifetime PR of 39-4, set when she won the 2017 Metro Atlantic Conference Championships two years ago at the Armory.
Hubbard ranks No. 2 spot on the all-time Monmouth indoor performance list, behind only current Monmouth senior Ashley McKinnon, who jumped 40-4 3/4 last year. McKinnon jumped 38-2 1/2 at Penn State on Friday.
Hubbard’s jump is bet in the MAC this winter. She moved ahead of Dominyka Leskauskaite of Manhattan, who jumped 38-7 at Yale last month.
At Absegami, Hubbard was a sectional champ in the high jump, a conference medalist in the hurdles and long jump and third-place finisher in the triple jump at the Meet of Champions.
