Kingsway’s Orion Joyner pops all-time S.J. #5 triple jump, breaks SJ-4 record!!!!!! EHT’s Mubeen Momodu also surpasses record!!!!!

Kingsway senior Orion Joyner demolished the South Jersey Group 4 meet record in the triple jump Friday on his way to the No. 5 mark in South Jersey history.

Joyner added more than a foot and a half to his PR of 46-5, which he recorded at indoor Easterns at the Armory in February, where he placed second to Meldon Grant of Manhasset. His previous outdoor PR was a 45-9 at the Woodbury Relays last month.

Joyner broke the S.J.-4 meet record of 47-4 1/4, set in 2015 by the late Zakiyy Williams of Rancocas Valley. RIP, Zakiyy!

Joyner’s mark is No. 26 in state history and No. 5 in South Jersey history. Four of the top six marks in South Jersey history have been recorded by Gloucester County jumpers:

50-9 1/4 … Khaliel Burnett [Delsea], 2018
48-3 1/4 … Ryan Chance [Glassboro], 2009
48-1 1/4 … Orion Joyner [Kingsway], 2019
48-0 … Josh Butler [Delsea], 2006

Mubeen Momodu of Egg Harbor was also above Williams’ former meet record with a 47-9 jump. That’s No. 8 in South Jersey history and breaks the Atlantic County record of 46-2 1/2 set in 2012 by Darnell Charles of Oakcrest. Momodu added more than three feet to his previous PR of 44-3, set at the South Jersey Invitational earlier this month.

Joyner also placed fifth in the 400-meter hurdles with a 57.38, another personal best.
