Video by D.Hahn
At the first meet of the season we may have seen a preview of power in the Division 1 boys throwing events. Friday night at the Nelson Daniel's Classic, Madison Throws Club throwers Theron Baumann (Monona Grove) and Jason Zahn (Grafton) battled it out in the Shot Put. Baumann's throw of 60'3" won the meet with Zahn chasing at 57'8.5". Theron was rotating in the Shot Put for the first time in competition and broke the 60 foot barrier, it could mean the rest of the throwers in the state are on notice that bigger throws could come in June. Jason and Theron are the Top returning Throwers in D1 Boys throws. Jason has thrown the shot over 59' already this winter and was the runner-up in the Discus last year at state. Theron had top 4 finishes in both the Shot and Discus last year. Great start gentleman and good luck in future competitions.
