Newsday’s All-Long Island girls track and field team 2022 – Newsday

Newsday Athlete of the Year: Alexandra Kelly, Rocky Point, Sr.

Kelly will be jumping for Princeton soon, but her records will be staying on Long Island. Kelly broke the state outdoor triple jump record at the state championships in June, marking 42 feet, 5 inches. The flight, which also clinched Kelly’s second state triple jump title of the school year, broke the previous record of 42-4, set by Westbury’s Marlene Ricketts in 2010, according to milesplit.com.

A week later, Kelly jumped 43-1/4 to win at New Balance Outdoor Nationals.

It’s only fitting that Kelly leaves Rocky Point as the best triple jumper in state history with many medals. As a junior, she was the best outdoor triple jumper in the state but, because of the pandemic, had no state championships to prove it in the pit. This year, she made up for that. On top of setting the outdoor state record and winning the championship, Kelly won the indoor state triple jump championship at 39-6 at Ocean Breeze Athletic Complex in March.
