Delsea’s Joe Metzger PRs again with #2 shot put mark this year in New Jersey!

Delsea senior Joe Metzger recorded another shot put PR this past week with a 55-6 1/4 bomb at the Rebel Shot Series #3 at the Bubble.

Metzger’s previous PR was a 54-8 3/4 from a meet at the Bubble last month. He came into the season with a PR of 54-1 1/4 from last year at the Bubble.

Metzger’s throw is No. 1 in South Jersey this year and No. 2 in the state, behind U.S. No. 2 Cole Tucker of Colts Neck, who threw 63-3 1/4 at adidas Indoor Nationals last month in Virginia Beach.

With his 55-6 1/4, Metzger moved into the No. 9 spot on the all-time Gloucester County indoor shot put list.
