Najeaya Singleton, a St. John’s sophomore from Vineland, threw a personal-best 46-8 3/4 Monday to place fourth in the shot put at the Big East Conference Championships at SPIRE Institute in Geneva, Ohio.
Singleton had just set her PR of 46-2 3/4 in late January at the Metropolitan Championships at Ocean Breeze. Before that she had a PR of 43-11 3/4 from a meet in mid-January at Ocean Breeze.
As a freshman at St. John’s, Singleton threw 42-0 3/4 indoors and 42-0 outdoors. So she’s now added more than 4 1/2 feet to her collegiate PR since December.
School officials haven’t bothered to update the all-time performance list on the school’s web site since 2017, but updating from results on TFRRS.org from the last few years, it looks like she’s now No. 10 in school history indoors.
Singleton threw 46-2 3/4 indoors at Vineland and was a state indoor Group 4 champ. She threw 44-9 3/4 outdoors. She was also a Meet of Champions discus runner-up in the spring of 2018 and had a PR of 143-2.
