On Sunday in Toms River, NJ during the Monmouth County Relay Championships a few times and marks cracked the top ten nationally.
Anselmi Breaks Through in the High Jump
Something that really caught our eye was the 6-08 high jump PR Mark Anselmi cleared to lead the meet and his relay team to victory. Last indoor season Anselmi had only cleared 6-00 once and his outdoor best was 6-04. That was a massive increase in height for this junior star and it moved him up to US#5, tied with four others, as well as the state lead. When looking at last year's indoor stats for the entire season Anselmi would have ranked third.
His Middletown South teammate Jonathan Scamardella was fourth overall with his own PR of 6-00 bringing their total to 12-08 to win the combined relay event. In the interview above they stated a New Jersey track and field great and 1984 Olympian Milton Goode was working with them over the summer months. Goode still ranks second all-time indoors for the state at 7-02.25 in the high jump, he competed for Monmouth Regional.
