Did Delsea senior Enrico Barnett just PR by 10 inches in the high jump?
A) That’s not possible.
B) It looks like he did.
Barnett won the high jump Saturday at the Deptford Spartan Relays with a 6-4 clearance.
That’s a nice jump under any circumstances. It’s No. 2 in the state this year and No. 1 in South Jersey.
But if Barnett’s MileSplit profile is correct, then this was only the second major high jump competition of Barnett’s track career. And in the first – the Delsea Crusader Field #2 last May – he cleared 5-6 and placed 6th.
Now, MileSplit doesn’t include dual meets, but they don’t miss much when it comes to weekend meets, championship meets and invitationals.
Barnett matched the best jump by a Delsea athlete in seven years, since Ameer Banks cleared 6-10 at the 2015 South Jersey Invitational at his home track at Delsea. Banks shares the school record with Josh Butler, who cleared 6-10 at Group 3 sectionals at Buena and states
If the info we have is wrong, let us know. But either way, that’s a heck of a performance by Barnett starting off his senior year.
