Youth high jump, shot put and 200m national records fall Thursday at USATF National JOTF Championships



SACRAMENTO — Breaking the youth national record in the boys’ 13-14 high jump twice, Trey Tintinger (Helena, Montana; USATF Montana) took the gold with a 2.00m/6-6.75 clearance on his third attempt. He broke the previous record of 1.95m6-4.75, set in 2012 by Justice Summerset, on his third try at 1.96m/6-5.

On his final throw of the competition, Xavier Muhammad (Houston, Texas; USATF Gulf) obliterated the boys’ 8 & under shot put national youth record with a throw of 10.41m/34-2. The previous record of 9.62m/31-6.75 was set in 2012 by Maalik Murphy.
Jelani Heath (Puyallup, Washington; Pacific Northwest), the Washington state 4A champion, won the women’s 17-18 long jump with a lifetime-best leap of 6.12m/20-1. Right behind her was Washington 2A winner Wurrie Njadoe (Shoreline, Washington; Pacific Northwest), who spanned 6.03m/19-9.5, also a lifetime best.

Runner-up in the long jump yesterday, Jasmine Moore (Mansfield, Texas; USATF Southwestern) won the 15-16 girls’ triple jump with a wind-aided leap of 12.87m/42-2.75. Moore was the Texas 5A state champion in the triple jump in May.

Georgia’s 5A state champion, Matthew Moore (McDonough, Georgia; USATF Georgia), had the fastest time of the day in the prelims of the men’s 17-18 110m hurdles, running 13.69 into a 0.9 mps wind. Moore has a best of 13.45 this year, and the JO meet record is 13.41.

Missing the national youth record by .04 seconds, Mayen Usoro (Phoenix, Arizona; USATF Arizona) topped all qualifiers for the semifinals in the girls’ 8 & under 100m with her 14.29 effort. She later narrowly missed the national youth record of 29.48 in the 200m, running 29.49 in the semis.

After missing out on a national youth record in the prelims of the 8 & under boys’ 200m yesterday due to an illegal aiding wind, Braylon Thomas (Fayetteville, North Carolina; USATF North Carolina) smashed that record in the third semifinal with a 28.08. Rhoan Kaulder (Rochester, New York; USATF Niagara) had the second-fastest time in the semis at 28.45 in section two, which stood briefly as a JO meet record before Thomas’ rapid run.

Jenna Diers (Bolingbrook, Illinois; USATF Illinois) started strong in the women’s 17-18 800m with the fastest first lap of her division and maintained the lead to secure a spot in the finals. Her 2:14.98 puts her in solid company with 2016 USATF New York Association Junior Olympic Championships event winner Kaylah Quarshie (Mount Vernon, New York; USATF New York).

Los Angeles Jets (Los Angeles, California; USATF Southern California) blazed ahead in the girls’ 8 & under 4x100m preliminaries, anchored by Zaria Mayfield. The club’s 59.86 came incredibly close to the national record of 59.83 set by a previous Los Angeles Jets team in 2013.

In the first heat of men’s 17-18 4x100m, Sprint Athletics Track (Atlanta, Georgia; USATF Georgia) set the pace for all other relay teams by finishing nearly a second faster at 40.43.  

Friday’s events begin at 8:00 a.m. PT with the first round of 15-16B 3000 meters, followed by the 17-18W Triple Jump. Follow along with the action on and join the conversation by following USATF on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram using the hashtags #JOTF and #USATFuturestars.
