Timber Creek graduate Jaden Johnson popped another triple PR Friday, and this one isn’t just an indoor PR.
Johnson, a freshman at New Jersey Institute of Technology in Newark, won the triple jump at the St. Thomas Aquinas Spartan Invite at Ocean Breeze with a 47-10 ¾.
That breaks his indoor PR and school record of 47-3 ¾. He’s broken the school record three times in three meets so far this year.
Johnson surpassed his outdoor PR of 47-7 ½ that he set this past spring when he won the state Group 3 title at Pennsauken.
Once again, Johnson had a very strong series, with five jumps over 45 feet, three over 46 feet and two close to 48 feet – the winning 47-10 ¾ on his 5th attempt and then a 47-9 ½ on his final attempt.
Johnson won by 2 ¾ inches over Rider junior Jayson Lee, a graduate of Jackson. Lee never broke 44 feet in high school
