On Monday at the South Brunswick Classic the state leading high jump mark of 6-08 was performed by sophomore Damarion Potts. Watch the clearance in the video above, this was his third attempt at 6-08 and he made no attempts past this height.
Only one other New Jersey athlete has cleared at least 6-06 this season and that is Skyler Salay of Burlington Twp who made 6-06.25 during the Cherokee Relay and Field meet on May 7th. There are six athletes tied at 6-04 for NJ No. 3. Potts also cracked the top 50 in the US with this height.
This is Potts' first track season at South Brunswick and he's recorded a 23.49 in the 200m, 51.91 for the 400m, a 22-02.25 long jump mark, and of course this state leading 5-08 clearance in the high jump.
Potts' long jump of 22-02.5 (NWI), also recorded at the South Brunswick Classic, currently ranks NJ No. 9 heading into the May 15th weekend.
New Jersey only saw three athletes over the 6-08 bar outdoors in 2019 and five in 2018.
