Mainland’s Camryn Dirkes records huge triple jump PR, #6 in Atlantic County history, at Eagle Relays!!!!!

Mainland senior Camryn Dirkes popped a major triple jump PR Thursday night at the Eagle Relays.

Competing at Central Regional in Bayville, Dirkes jumped 37-9, the No. 6 mark in Atlantic County history and No. 21 in South Jersey history.

Dirkes’ previous PR was 35-8 ¾ from the Cape-Atlantic Conference Championships in Bridgeton in 2019, her freshman year, where she placed second to South Jersey record holder Claudine Smith of Atlantic City.

Here’s a look at the all-time Atlantic County top-10:

42-2 … Claudine Smith [Atlantic City], 2018
39-2 ¼ … Mariah Hubbard [Absegami Reg.], 2016
38-8 … Shameka Marshall [Oakcrest], 2001
38-6 … Monet Gist [Atlantic City], 2013
38-4 … Mariah Stephens [Egg Harbor Twp.], 2021
37-9 … Camryn Dirkes [Mainland Reg.], 2022
37-7 ¼ … Alex Romanelli [Absegami], 2009
37-7 ¼ … Kyla Edwards [Oakcrest], 2018
37-2 …… Shamyra Brown [Oakcrest], 2006
36-10 ¼ … Neyshka Garcia Perez [Absegami], 2017

MileSplit is having issues with its ranking system, but it appears that Dirkes’ mark is No. 2 in the state so far this spring. Faith Bethea of Snyder jumped 38-3 ¼ at the Pirate Relays in Pearl River, N.Y., opening weekend.
