I know it’s not a big deal with Ali, Andrews and Ajee but another A athlete from New Jersey made a memorable debut this weekend at Nats.
Former Ramapo College (and Ramapo High School) jumper Anita Rogers jumped 20-7 to finish seventh in the long jump. She has a remarkable story that included getting adopted by a Ramapo College professor practically from homelessness before her senior year of high school.
She had a solid senior year at Ramapo H.S. (mostly as a triple jumper) and had a great career at Ramapo College where she a multiple time D3 All-American in the jumps and the dash.
And she’s a sweet kid too.
