Quinn Bithell from Lower Cape May sets high jump PR at Ocean Breeze, moves up to #4 in Rider history!!!!!

Quinn Bithell, a Rider senior from Lower Cape May Regional, set an indoor high jump PR of 5-7 Friday night at the Albany Winter Classic at Ocean Breeze.

That’s No. 4 in Rider history, and it’s No. 1 in the Metro Atlantic Conference this winter.

Bithell lost on misses to Grace Campbell of Columbia, but she matched her lifetime PR and broke her indoor PR of 5-5, which she initially set at the Fasttrack Invite at Ocean Breeze as a freshman and matched lat winter at the Metro Atlantic Conference Championships at the Armory, where she placed second to teammate Sara Gardner, a graduate of Delaware Valley Regional in Alexandria Township, Hunterdon County, near Frenchtown.

Bithell matched her overall PR of 5-7, which she set in winning the MAC championships outdoors in West Long Branch last May.

The versatile Bithell also runs on Rider’s 4-by-2 and 4-by-4 teams. Her previous best this winter was a 5-5 in December, also at Ocean Breeze.

Bithell was the state Group 2 high jump champion indoors as a LCMR junior and a multiple sectional champ and state medalist. She was also a county champ in the 400. She also competed in the long jump, intermediates and 800 for the Tigers.

Bithell now trails only Kelly Kajunski (5-8 3/4 in 2007), Natalie Cowan (5-8 in 2016) and Gardner (5-8 in 2018) on the all-time Rider indoor high jump list. She’s No. 3 on the outdoor list behind Kajunski (5-10 in 2007) and Daria Chadwick (5-7 1/4 in 2016).
