Glassboro’s Clifton Moore soars into all-time Gloucester County triple jump top-10!!!!!!

Glassboro junior Clifton Moore, in what appears to be his first indoor track competition ever, moved into 7th place on the all-time Gloucester County indoor triple jump performance list this week.

Moore jumped 43-11 ¾ to win the triple jump at the Armory High School Holiday Classic Thursday in New York.

That’s an indoor PR for Moore since he had never triple jumped indoors.

Moore won by more than a foot over Jak Kearney of Roman Catholic High School at Broad and Vine in Philadelphia. Kearney placed 2nd with a best jump of 42-7.

Moore broke the school record of 42-0 ½ set by Mike Hall at the 2020 Hispanic Games at the Armory.

He also had the three-best jumps of the competition and averaged 43-0 on his six legal jumps.

Moore opened with a 43-11 and followed with jumps of 42-4 and 42-8 in the trials and 42-10 and 42-4 in the finals before finishing with the 43-11 ¾.

His previous PR was a 43-6 ¼ to place second at the state Group 1 meet last spring at Pennsauken. That made him the No. 4 sophomore in the state last year.
