Boys Triple Jump
Ryan McCoy (VA) 48-03.50
Results

After leading from his first jump, Roanoke VA senior Ryan McCoy suddenly trailed when Michael Whitehead PA nailed 14.70 on his last jump. But McCoy had one last jump left. "I knew I couldn't scratch, so I backed up 2 feet," McCoy said. Taking off from behind the board, McCoy soared 14.72 to win.

With eleven entries at 48-feet or better this season, the hop, skip and jump promised to be a close battle. While only three contestants reached the 48-foot mark Saturday, the competition lived up to its advance billing.

Ryan McCoy (Roanoke, VA) jumped 48-1.25 (14.66) on his first try and led going into the final round of the second section. But in the final round Michael Whitehead (Norristown, PA) threw down the gauntlet, improving to 48-2.75 (14.70) to take over first place. “It was a real tough battle,” McCoy said afterwards. “I knew one of them was going to pull something.”

But McCoy was up to Whitehead’s challenge, soaring 48-3.5 (14.72) on his last attempt to reclaim the lead. The mark stood up for McCoy, whose best measurement this season is 49-7. “I stood back about three feet so I could get one in,” he explained. “I didn’t want to scratch. On that last jump, I didn’t even touch the board. It was a relief.”

Whitehead had to settle for the runnerup spot. Third was junior Terry Wood (Salisbury, NC) with 48-0.5 (14.64m). Andre Tillman (Spencer, NC), last year’s adidas outdoor champion, mustered a jump of 47-8.5 (14.54m) that earned him fourth place.

The skin-of-his teeth triumph left an impression on McCoy. “I don’t think I trained hard enough,” he said. “I had to pull it out in the end. It came down to the last jump.”

McCoy claims he’s had a couple of fouls in the 50-foot range this season. “I’d say one was about 51-feet,” he says. “I’m going to train harder now.”
