Delsea junior Greg Masso uncorks best shot put throw in S.J. this year at Cherokee!!!!!!

Delsea junior Greg Masso popped three straight shot put PRs Tuesday night at the Cherokee Throw Down #2.

Masso came into the meet with an indoor shot put PR of 52-2 from the Cherokee Throw Down #1 two weeks ago. His outdoor PR is 52-8 ¼ from Group 2 sectionals last spring at Delsea, where the Crusaders swept the top three spots behind senior Jason Nwosu and Josh Caudill along with Masso.

On Tuesday, Masso opened with a near-indoor PR of 51-11 ½ before hitting 52-2 ¼, 53-5 and a huge finish with a 54-8.

The average of his four throws was 53-0 ½, beyond his previous indoor and lifetime personal bests.

Masso’s two-foot PR is the No. 1 throw in South Jersey this year, bumping Cinnaminson senior Malicah Etienne, who threw 54-2 last week at the state Group 2 relays at the Bubble. It’s No. 6 in the state this year and No. 2 among underclassmen.

He’s the seventh Delsea thrower to surpass 54 feet indoors. The list includes Josh Awotunde, who placed 3rd in the World Championships in Eugene in July.

62-0 ½ … Jason Nwosu, 2022
58-8 ¾ … Bill Goldsborough, 2018
57-8 ¼ … Josh Awotunde, 2013
57-5 … Joe Metzger, 2021
55-4 ¾ … Ryan Knight, 1996
54-8 … Greg Masso, 2023
54-6 ½ … Josh Caudill, 2022

Glassboro junior Damere Lassiter also hit a big PR at Cherokee. Lassiter placed 2nd with a 51-5 ½ on his final throw. Lassiter’s previous PR was a 50-4 last week at Ocean Breeze, his first time over 50 feet.

Etienne placed 3rd with a 49-10 on his first attempt, and another Delsea thrower, junior Tyler Habersham-Agbemenu, hit a massive PR with a 47-11 ½ in just his 3rd lifetime meet. His previous PR was a 42-8 ¾ at the Bubble over the weekend.
