WAYNE — When she first started triple-jumping four months ago, Kaitlin Salisbury didn’t know a second phase was in the event.

After Tuesday’s spectacular performance at the Passaic County track championships at Wayne Hills, the Hawthorne junior now knows that if she can get her second phase— the so-called “step’’ in the event formerly called the hop, step and jump — to be as good as her first and third, there might not be anyone in county history or in New Jersey right now as good as she can be.

Salisbury, after leading the event from her first jump of the competition, a then-personal-best 38-3½, shook off three narrow fouls that had resulted in farther jumps, and went an even better 39-6 on her sixth and final attempt. It was the third-longest jump in Passaic history and third best in New Jersey this year.
