Joe Metzger does it again! Another big PR for the Delsea shot put ace!!

Delsea senior Joe Metzger popped another shot put PR Tuesday, hitting 56-4 at the Rebel Shot Series #4 at the Bennett Center.

Metzger placed third behind Colts Neck’s Cole Tucker (60-7 1/2) and Tyler Konopka of Toms River South (59-4 1/2).

Tucker, Konopka and Metzger are the three top-ranked shot putters in the state this winter, Tucker with a 63-3 1/4 at the adidas Indoor Nationals in Virginia Beach last month, Konopka with a 60-2 at the Bennett Center last weekend and Metzger with his bomb Tuesday afternoon. 

Metzger’s previous PR was a 55-6 1/4 last week in the Rebel Shot Series #3 event. He’s been over 53 feet in five straight meets.

Here’s a look at the all-time South Jersey indoor top-50, with Metzger moving up from the No. 36 spot to No. 33. He’s No. 9 in Gloucester County history.
