Prisca Blamon, a Cinnaminson grad, bombed her second shot put PR in a week Sunday at the Monmouth Spring Invitational in Long Branch.
Blamon, a Monmouth junior, threw 45-7 3/4, adding half an inch to her PR of 45-7 1/4 from the previous weekend in a meet at Rider in Lawrenceville.
Before that her PR was 45-1 1/2 from an indoor meet in January of 2020 at Navy in Annapolis, Md., and her outdoor PR was 44-7 1/2 from March of 2019, also at her home track at Monmouth.
Blamon ranks 3rd in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference, behind two Manhattan throwers – Alexandra Preckajlo (48-6 1/4) and Lasma Padedze (47-3).
Her 47-7 3/4 ranks 6th in school history and is the best by a Monmouth woman in four years.
Blamon also ranks 6th in the MAAC in the hammer throw (143-11) and 12th in the discus (116-6).
At Cinnaminson, Prisca had PRs of 38-6 1/4 in the shot and 130-3 in the discus. She also triple jumped 34-11 and was a sectional medalist.
Blamon’s older sister Faith ranks 4th in Monmouth history in the javelin with a throw of 162-7 and placed 13th at the USATF Championships in Sacramento in 2017.
