Posted 1/6/22

Tey’ana Ames, a senior at Atlantic County Tech, opened the season with a PR in the shot put at the SJTCA meet Monday evening at the Bubble.

Ames won the shot put with a 39-11 throw, half an inch better than her 39-10 1/2 that placed second at the outdoor state Group 4 meet at Franklin High in June. Ames went on to place 6th at the Meet of Champions at South Plainfield.

Ames’ previous indoor PR was a 37-0 1/4 at last winter’s state Group 4 meet, when she placed 4th with a 37-0 1/4.

Her throw is the best indoor shot put performance by an Atlantic County girl in seven years, since Nyla Noble of Egg Harbor Township threw 40-10 at the 2014 state Group 4 meet at the Bubble.
