East Chapel Hill's Jon Beyle says he'll "take a couple of days off" before getting back to work on his form for outdoor track season, which began official practices this week along with all other NCHSAA spring sports.
Beyle more than earned a break after his mark of 56 feet, 2.5 inches in winning the shot put event in last Saturday's NCHSAA indoor track championships.
"My main goal going in was to get the win, and I did," he said. "I was hoping for 58 feet, but 56 is still a PR (personal record,) so I can't complain."
He got a bit of extra motivation when Jalen Peterkin of East's conference rival Southern Durham hit 53-5.25.
"That kind of scared me a little bit," Beyle said. "He was talented enough to get 56 (feet), I thought."
Entering a limited lineup for the NCHSAA indoor championship, East Chapel Hill finished 11th of 40 teams.
Sam Miner helped with is fourth place in the 3,200 meters with his time of 9:42.6.Tournaments under way
