STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. – Penn State Harrisburg was led by Alex White at the 2020 New Jersey Athletic Conference (NJAC) Indoor Track & Field Championships held at the Ocean Breeze Athletic Complex on Monday evening, Feb. 24.
With the Lions making the move from the Capital Athletic Conference (CAC) to their new home beginning this season, White became the first athlete in program history to secure an NJAC Championship when he won gold in the long jump event thanks to a top bound of 7.01 meters; a mark that currently ranks top-30 in the nation and stands as a new program record.
The senior also took bronze in the high jump with a top leap of 1.95 meters before earning a fifth-place finish in the triple jump thanks to a top effort of 13.11 meters in the event. In total, White racked up 20 total points for the Blue & White on the night.
Andrew Bomberger also impressed at the conference championship event, coming home third in the pole vault when he cleared the bar at 4.25 meters, earning six more points for Penn State Harrisburg in the process.
Joseph Rebarchak was the third Blue & White athlete to come away with a top-10 finish on the day when he turned in a new personal best mark in the shot put thanks to his top launch of 12.26 meters in the event.
In addition to the men's performers, Jameraquai May was in action in both the 200m and 400m dashes for the women. Alexandria Morrison took part in the 500m run, as did Abagail Marquardt in the 800m run. Jamilyn Nimo represented the women in the field, competing in both the shot put and the weight throw events.
