Today it’s the Cumberland County Outdoor Record Book!!! And we found an incredible coincidence in our research!!!

Since I started doing this county record project, I haven’t come across any records that were set at the West Deptford Relays.

Then, in the span of about 30 seconds, I found two. And they were set on the same day. By two teammates. Who were both throwers.

The old New Jersey track annual lists the Cumberland County old javelin record as 137-1 by Helen Wilks of Bridgeton and the shot put record as 46-1 1/2 by Nacole Moore of Bridgeton. But those annuals don’t provide any other information.

Thanks to the archived DyeStat database from the spring of 2000, we learn that both marks were set on April 8, 2000, at the West Deptford Relays. Both still stand today, 20 years later, as county records, although of course the old javelin has been retired so that record will never be broken.

So congrats to Helen and Nacole, teammates 20 years ago and record holders today!

Let’s catch you up on the first 10 installments of the South Jersey County Record Project!

INDOOR
Day 1: Atlantic County
Day 2: Burlington County
Day 3: Camden County
Day 4: Cape May County
Day 5: Cumberland County
Day 6: Gloucester County
Day 7: Salem County

OUTDOOR
Day 8: South Jersey 
Day 9: Atlantic County
Day 10: Burlington County
Day 11: Cape May County

We’re still missing some information on some early marks – where they made, when they were made, if they were really made. Results from several meets is sketchy before the 1990s.

Corrections and additions from today’s Cumberland County Outdoor Record Book or any of the previous posts is welcome! We’ve had a handful of people send over some pretty interesting corrections so far from as far back as the 1960s. We’ll never get these 100 percent complete but it’s fun to see how close we can get!
