Haddon Heights’ Cydney Thomas BOMBS her way to #3 shot put mark in South Jersey history with INSANE PR!!!!!

Haddon Heights junior Cydney Thomas moved all the way up to No. 3 in South Jersey history in the shot put with a mammoth PR performance at sectionals this weekend.

Thomas extended her PR from 42-4 all the way to 46-1 with her win in the South Jersey Group 1 sectional championships Saturday at the Toms River Intermediate School adjacent to the Bennett Center.

That’s an improvement of three feet, 9 inches, in an event where improvement is generally measured in inches or fractions of an inch.

Thomas broke the Camden County indoor record of 43-11 3/4 set by Bishop Eustace’s Stephanie Scaramella at 2007 states.

Her throw is also best in Camden County history indoors or out. The outdoor county shot put mark was 43-2 1/2 by Lacole Fields of Camden in 1996.

She broke the S.J. Group 1 meet record of 42-11 set last year by Zyra Thomas of Schalick and broke the overall South Jersey indoor sectional record of 44-9 3/4 set in 2017 by Vineland’s Najeaya Singleton.

Including both indoor and outdoor throws, it’s No. 6 in South Jersey history. It’s also No. 3 in the U.S. this year according to the MileSplit database and No. 1 among juniors.

Thomas also just missed the South Jersey junior class record. Vineland’s Singleton threw 46- 1 1/2 at states as a junior in 2017.
