Lumberton’s Greg Foster sets a long jump PR of 21-8!!!

Lumberton native Greg Foster, a junior at the Lawrenceville School, leaped a personal-best 21-8 3/4 in the long jump last week at the High Intensity Track Jump Series meet No. 4.

The jumps-only meet was held at High Intensity Track in Fairfield, Essex County.

It looks like Foster’s previous high school PR was 20-11 from the Mid-Atlantic Prep League Championships at Lavino Fieldhouse in Lawrenceville last February.

This was Foster’s first meet since Easterns at the Armory a year ago this week, where he competed in the hurdles and long jump. 

Foster, who has never run outdoor track for Lawrenceville according to the MileSplit database, competed in the High Intensity Track event representing Camden Track Club.

Foster, a former age-group national champion high hurdler, is the son of Shawnee graduate Greg Foster, who was an All-America horizontal jumper at Stockton University and competed in the 1988 Olympic Trials in the triple jump.
