Delsea’s Christian Langston pops mammoth PR in first lifetime indoor long jump!!!!!!

Whatever he jumped Tuesday was going to be an indoor long jump PR for Christian Langston because he had never competed in an indoor long jump before.

Turned out to be not only a PR but the No. 10 jump in the state this year.

Langston won the long jump at the Rebel Shot / Jump Series No. 1 at the Bubble with a 21-3 ¼, which was a nearly two-foot PR for the Delsea junior.

He had only long jumped three times as a sophomore with a best of 19-6 ¾ at the Red & Black Invitational in East Stroudsburg in April.

He did have a promising season as a quarter-miler, dropping his 400 PR from 55.90 as a freshman to 51.52 for 7th at Group 3 sectionals on his home track. That made him the No. 4 sophomore in South Jersey.

Unfortunately, no series information is available, but Langston won the long jump by more than a foot over Tony Brinson of Central Regional, who placed 2nd at 20-2 ½.

Langston’s 21-3 ¼ is No. 3 among New Jersey underclassmen and trails Egg Harbor senior Ahmad Fogg [22-3 ½] and Mainland senior William Murray [21-10] on the 2023 South Jersey indoor list.

Langston’s mark is No. 11 in Gloucester County indoor history, just three inches outside the top 10:
