Griffith Shatters State Record Twelve Hours Before Millrose

On the biggest Indoor Stage in the Country, Webster Schroeder senior Corintia Griffith took second place. She was at the Millrose Games, and came just seven inches short of the title, as she jumped 40-1.5 on her final attempt.

But no one else in the field would have the success that weekend that she did.

Just twelve hours earlier, back up in Rochester, Griffith was competing for her team in the Monroe County Champs. There, she launched the jump of a lifetime. A full foot PR, over both Indoors and Out, Griffith crushed her own State Record, and jumped #10 All-Time for HS Athletes.

The board read 42-11.

She had jumped 41-11.5 at Sectionals last year to set the overall State Record, and had jumped 41-7.5 already this year. But this was a major push for the Harvard-bound senior. Not only that, but she followed up with a State Leading 19-9 in the Long Jump. Our MileSplit National Team caught up with the Section 5 star earlier this week.

The segment kicks off the show.
