RV’s Kristina Tossas moves into all-time S.J. triple jump top-10 AND medals in long jump at Easterns!!!

Huge day Tuesday for Kristina Tossas!

The Rancocas Valley senior medaled in both horizontal jumps at the 87th annual Easterns at the Armory with one PR and one near PR.

Tossas jumped 37-2 1/2 for 3rd in the triple jump, just three inches out of first place, and then went 17-7 1/4 for 4th in the long jump. She also ran 7.58 in the hurdles trials, missing her PR in the 55 highs by just 4-100ths of a second.

Tossas has an indoor long jump PR of 17-10, so she was less than three inches off that. Her previous triple jump PR was 36-8 from one night earlier at Ocean Breeze.

Tossas had a solid TJ series with five jumps of 35-9 or better and two over 36 feet. She surpassed 17 feet on four of her five legal jumps in the LJ.

Her 37-2 1/2 makes her No. 6 in South Jersey history and No. 3 in Burlington County history. She’s already No. 8 on the all-time Burlco long jump list.

The only other girls on the all-time Burlington County indoor long jump and indoor triple jump lists are Northern Burlington 2014 graduate Ashley Edwards, who’s No. 9 in the long jump (17-8 1/2) and No. 4 in the triple jump (37-1), and 2012 Lenape grad Shaya Wilkerson, who’s No. 8 in the long jump (17-9 3/4) and No. 1 in the triple (38-0 1/2).

The only girl on the all-time South Jersey long jump and triple jump lists is 2013 Winslow graduate Cidae’a Woods, who is No. 4 in the triple jump (37-10) and No. 3 in the long jump (19-8).
