Collingswood’s Kevin Kevelier moves up to #8 on the all-time indoor S.J. triple jump list!!!!!

Collingswood senior Keven Kevelier moved up to No. 8 in South Jersey indoor triple jump history Saturday with a 45-9 3/4 jump.

Kevelier won the event at the New Balance Games at the Armory in a terrific battle with Kasey Savage of Hatboro-Horsham High in Montgomery County, Pa. Savage was second at 45-8, an overall indoor-outdoor PR.

Kevelier had jumped 44-11 last weekend in his first lifetime indoor triple jump competition.

On Saturday, he had a remarkable series, with six jumps over 45 feet and those six jumps averaging 45-5 1/2:

1st jump: 45-2 1/2
2nd jump: 45-8
3rd jump: 45-5 1/4
4th jump: 45-2 1/2
5th jump: 45-6 1/2
6th jump:  45-9 3/4

Kevelier led the entire competition, but Savage nearly pulled it out with that 45-8 on his final jump.

Kevelier’s 45-9 3/4 is No. in the state so far this year, behind only Sebasteon Allen of East Orange, who jumped 45-11.

Kevelier’s outdoor PR is 47-5 1/4 from his fifth-place finish at last year’s Meet of Champions.
