This year’s Frog Jump jockeys and their green steeds had to compete in conditions that the frogs may have enjoyed. However it may have suppressed their jumps just a bit. Overall jump lengths were down a few inches with the cooler temps. Rosie the Ribiter’s record of 21′ 5 3/4″ is safe for another year. Past Champion Riley Kitchell qualified with a 19′ 2″ jump with “Snafu” and was the longest officially measured jump of the weekend.
Typically there are over 1,000 qualifying jumps leading up to the Sunday finals.
