Lumberton’s Greg Foster won the high school invitational long jump at the 114th Millrose Games at the Armory Saturday.
Foster, a senior at The Lawrenceville School, jumped 23-5 1/2 on his fifth of six attempts and won by nearly a foot over Jordan McCants of Roswell, Ga., who hit 22-7 3/4, on his fourth attempt.
Foster was off his PR and U.S. No. 1 and all-time New Jersey No. 2 24-8 from the Mercer County. Championships at the Bubble in Toms River, but he did what he had to do to win, and the Armory has never been a good place for horizontal jumps anyway.
Foster opened with a 22-9, a foul and a 22-10 3/4 to advance to the finals. He opened the finals with another foul before hitting the 23-5 1/2.
