Caleb Brown, Savannah Roark and others got Ohio off to a great start at New Balance Nationals on Friday and the state's athletes who took over on day two kept the momentum going with several earning All-American honors (top 6 placements) and many others that were not far off that distinction.
Thomas Worthington wasn't the only Ohio-based relay team to enjoy success on day two - both Hilliard Davidson 4 x 1 Mile squads produced All-America worthy results. The girls finished second in 20:43.12 and the boys took sixth in a time of 17:34.64.
In field event action, Nolan Landis followed up his strong runner-up effort at D1 State's from the week before with a fourth place showing at The Armory. Landis secured his placement with a PR toss of 61-1.25.
