MileSplit caught up with one of the state's top throwers, Nolan Landis at last weekend's OHSAA District - Madison cross country meet. Landis is a shot put and discus specialist who owns impressive pr's of 58-10 (indoor), 60-10.5 (outdoor) and 193-6.
In the spring of 2018, Landis competed at the Division I State Championship meet, where he placed fifth in the discus and seventh in the shot put. Last winter, he captured fourth in the shot put at the OATCCC Indoor State Championship and then went on to claim eighth at New Balance Nationals Indoor.
The Madison senior recently committed to Indiana University; he explained to MileSplit why the Hoosiers program is right for him. Landis also spoke about his desire to win a state championship and how he believes that he'll threaten the 200 foot marker in discus competition and 65 feet in the shot put event.
Nolan Landis will be chasing the elusive 200 foot benchmark during outdoor next spring.
