Congratulations to Shaker High School senior and Indoor Track and Field athlete Ronel Forde, who broke the New York State record in the triple jump at the Eastern States Championships in NYC. Forde won with a winning jump of 51 feet, 6 inches, more than three feet better than his personal best, and shattered the 25 year old state record held by Chris Lopez of Archbishop Malloy, of 50’ 7 ¼”. Forde’s jump also broke the Section 2 record set by Albany High’s Quentin Armstrong in 1994, of 48’ 2 ½”.
