Woodstown’s Madeline Hunt goes into M-of-C after recording best triple jump ever by S.J. Group 1 girl!!!!!

Woodtown senior Madeline Hunt broke the Salem County triple jump record Monday evening at the Last-Chance Meet of Champions qualifier at the Bubble.

Hunt jumped 35-8, a huge PR over her PR of 34-2 3/4 from Easterns at the Armory last month. Hunt jumped as far as 36-5 1/2 last spring, when she took third at Group 1 states at Franklin High.

Her jump is the farthest ever by any South Jersey Group 1 jumper and the best in New Jersey this year by a Group 1 athlete. It’s also in the all-time South Jersey top 20.

She’ll compete Sunday in the Meet of Champions at Ocean Breeze.

The outdoor Salem County record is 37-6 1/2, set in 2012 by Woodstown’s Alexa DiGregoria at Group 2 states at South Plainfield.

The multi-talented Hunt is also a 9-6 pole vaulter and took third at states this past weekend and qualified for the M-of-C. She’s also a 25-foot shot putter, 16-1 long jumper, 65-second quarter-miler and 4-10 high jumper. So hopefully a heptathlon or two is in her future.
