Bryanna Craig soars to big high jump win in collegiate debut for Purdue!!!!!

Former Millville star Bryanna Craig, who recorded the 11th-highest scholastic heptathlon score in history last spring, won the high jump Saturday in her college debut for Purdue.

Craig, a freshman at Purdue, where her dad Raffael is an assistant coach, cleared 5-7 ¼ on her first attempt before missing three tries at 5-9 ¼ at the Edmons-Wilt Invitational at Lambert Fieldhouse in West Lafayette, Ind.

Craig passed at 4-9, 4-11 and 5-1, cleared 5-3 on her first try, passed 5-5, and then cleared 5-6 and 5-7 ¼ on her first attempts.

Craig’s overall PR is 5-10 from the Little Caesars Chief Relays at West Ouachita High School in West Monroe, La., in April. Her indoor PR is 5-9 ¾ at the LSU Last Chance Qualifier this past February at LSU Fieldhouse in Baton Rouge, La.

She’s scheduled to race in the 60-meter hurdles later Saturday.

Craig was born and raised in Millville and led Millville High School’s track team to the 2019 state Group 4 championship. She won the national scholastic heptathlon as a Millville freshman and set the national freshman record. She graduated from Ruston (La.) High School this past spring.
