Rider’s Mariah Stephens from Egg Harbor Township in all-time Rider top-10 in three events as a freshman!!!

Mariah Stephens, a Rider freshman from Egg Harbor Township, had a breakthrough hurdles race this past weekend at the Armory.

Stephens ran 8.93 in the trials at the Rutgers Open at the 168th Street Armory in New York, and although she missed the final by 4-100th of a second, she broke her PR of 8.95 set in a meet last month at Ocean Breeze in Staten Island.

Stephens already ranks No. 6 in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (and No. 2 among freshmen) in the 60-meter dash with her 7.85 from last month at Ocean Breeze and No. 4 in the triple jump (No. among freshmen) with a 37-10 from last month. Now she’s up to No. 5 in the 60-meter hurdles with her 8.93 (and No. 2 among freshmen again).

Although Rider hasn’t updated its all-time performance list in a couple years, I updated the 60 and 60 hurdles lists, and it looks like Stephens – just a few months into her career – is already No. 10 in the 60 (1-100th of a second behind Bordentown’s Genesis Walker), tied for No. 8 in the hurdles (8-100ths ahead of Shawnee’s Tabatha Haskins) and No. 8 all-time in the triple jump.
