Cinnaminson’s Malicah Etienne pops nearly 3-foot shot put PR for S.J. #1!!!!!!

Malicah Etienne broke the 52-foot mark, the 53-foot mark and the 53-foot mark. All for the first time.

Etienne, a Cinnaminson senior, enjoyed an enormous breakthrough meet Saturday at the state Group 2 relays, adding nearly three feet to his shot put PR with a 54-2 bomb.

Etienne’s previous PR was 51-6, which he hit both last indoor season at the Cherokee Thrown Down #3 and outdoors at the South Jersey Track Coaches Association Elite Meet at Delsea in May.

Unfortunately, the state results don’t list field event series, but Etienne’s mark is No. 1 in South Jersey this year and No. 6 in the state.

It’s also No. 11 in Burlington County history and No. 2 by a Cinnaminson thrower, behind Kamron Kobolak’s 62-7 ¾ at 2018 Armory Nationals. Ryan Addlesberger was No. 2 in Cinnaminson history at 54-1 ¾ from 2015 Group 2 states, but Etienne passed him by a quarter of an inch.

Etienne and his partner, senior Josh Neel, won the Group 2 shot put relay at the Bubble.
