Williamstown graduate Devin Bradham is still high jumping, and on Saturday – in only his second meet since graduating from Penn State in the spring of 2019 – cleared 6-10 ¼ at the Rider 5-Way Meet in Lawrenceville.
Bradham’s only other meet since college was at Thomas Edison Park in Edison last June, where he cleared 6-6.
Bradham’s 6-10 ¼ clearance is his best since May 25, 2019, when he cleared 7-1 at the NCAA East Preliminary Round meet in Jacksonville. It’s his highest clearance ever in his home state, a fraction higher than the 6-10 he cleared when he won the 2015 Meet of Champions in South Plainfield.
At Penn State, Bradham set his PR of 7-1 ½ at the 2019 Jim Thorpe Invitational in State College and then repeated that two weeks later at the Big Ten Championships in Iowa City, where he placed 5th.
In all, Bradham cleared 7 feet five times in college and 6-11 or better in an additional five meets.
He ranks 7th in Penn State history and is currently ranked 24th among U.S. men.
