Cydney Thomas of Haddon Hts. takes over N.J. #1 spot in discus with PR bomb at Rowland Relays!!!!!

Haddon Heights junior Cydney Thomas bombed the discus 135-1 Saturday at the George Rowland Relays at Haddon Township, the best throw in the state this year.

Thomas’s previous PR was a 130-4, good for third place at last year’s Meet of Champions at Northern Burlington.

Thomas’s throw is best by a South Jersey girl since 2016, but no South Jersey girl has hit 140 feet in the disc since 2013, when Jessica Woodard and Tara Daniels both did it.

Thomas popped the 135-1 on her first throw. She had a 122-11 on her second and then fouled on her third. She also won the shot put with a 41-1.

The all-time South Jersey list is interesting because Camden County, South Jersey’s most populous county, had only two 135-foot throwers before Thomas — Camden County record holder Tisha Kerrin of Eastern, who threw 143-6 in 1989, and Gabbriel Harris-Davis of Timber Creek, who threw 136-7 in 2016.

Of the 23 135-foot throwers, seven are from Cumberland County, six from Gloucester County, five from Burlington County, three from Camden County and two from Atlantic County.
