Egg Harbor graduate Ahmad Brock an Collingswood’s Keven Kevelier, both sophomores at Monmouth, won conference titles Thursday in the Colonial Athletic Association Championships at the Virginia Beach Sports Center.
Brock jumped 47-0 ¼ and won the triple jump by nine inches over Jordan Spencer of Northeastern. Kevelier placed 3rd with a 45-8 ½ jump, and Eastern’s A.J. Brooks, a freshman at Monmouth, was 6th with a PR 43-6 ½.
Brock had four jumps of at least 46-6, including the winning 47-0 ¼ on his third attempt. His PR is 47-6 ½ from the Villanova Invitational last month at Ocean Breeze. The conference title was his first.
Kevelier has an indoor PR of 46-6 ¾, also from the Villanova Invite. He hit his outdoor PR of 47-7 ¼ last May at the Metro Atlantic Championships in Lawrenceville. Monmouth moved from the MAC to the CAA this year.
Brooks was triple jumping indoors for the first time in his life, it looks like. He focused on the hurdles in high school but did go 44-5 ¾ this past June at Group 4 sectionals at Washington Township.
Kevelier picked up his second conference title in the high jump with a 6-6 ¾ clearance on his first attempt. He and runner-up Rickie Casazza, a Monmouth senior, both cleared 6-4 ¾ and 6-6 ¾ on their first attempts and missed all three tries at 6-8 ¼. Kevelier got the win because he made 6-2 ¾ on his first attempt and Casazza cleared it on his second try. Kevelier won the MAC high jump last winter at 6-8 ¾.
