Three meets, three NJIT triple jump school records for Timber Creek’s Jaden Johnson!!!!!!

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
