Keturah Orji sets NJ state record & US #1 mark in TJ (42'1.50") on Wednesday! Brandon Miles Jan 29, 2014

When you are truly elite, you do not need a warm-up competition to put down a big performance. As Mount Olive (NJ) senior Keturah Orji showed on Wednesday in her first triple jump competition of the indoor season as she broke the New Jersey state record and took over as the US leader in the event by nearly two full feet with a mark of 42'1.50". The performance from the mid-week New Jersey Metropolitan Invitational puts her just outside of US top 10 all-time territory in the event (current US top 10 HS indoor all-time cut-off is 42'2.75").
