Stockton’s Hunter Daly from Florence wins NJAC high jump title with PR leap!!!

Daly cleared 6-0 3/4 on his first attempt but needed three tries to get over 6-2 3/4. He went over 6-4 3/4 on his first attempt and then on his eighth attempt of the day sailed over the bar at 6-6 3/4. Daly did take three tries at 6-7 3/4. 

Stockton’s indoor school record is 6-8 3/4, set in 2013 by Tim Miller from Pinelands Regional. The outdoor record is 6-11 3/4 by Paul Klemic of Mainland Regional in 2006. Klemic was the 2000 national scholastic outdoor champ with a 7-4 1/2, still the state outdoor high jump record and still the New Balance Nationals meet record. He was a two-time NCAA Division 3 national champion in the long jump.

Daly is tied for No. 3 in the Atlantic Region of NCAA Division 3 with Rowan jumpers Adonis McGee, a freshman from St. Peter’s Prep in Jersey City, and Earnest Daniel, a junior from Kingsway.

At Florence, Daly only competed two years and only outdoors. He won the state Group 1 title as a senior in the spring of 2017 at Egg Harbor. He set his scholastic PR of 6-6 winning the Woodbury Relays.

Daly’s collegiate outdoor PR is 6-6 from last year’s AARTFC meet at Cortland, N.Y.
