Madison Throws Club is dedicated to TRACK and FIELD THROWERS in Wisconsin and beyond who want to take their skills to the next level. Middle School, High School and College - beginner through advanced; MTC has been helping hundreds of throwers become their best since 2002. MTC offers summer, fall, and winter sessions, one-on-one coaching and small and large group clinics year-round in Madison, Wisconsin.
The first dual meet between the UW Badgers and Minnesota Gophers in 37 years provided a great opportunity for MTC Alumni throwers to hit some new lifetime bests early in the NCAA indoor season.

Just wanted to give a shout out to all of the MTC ALUMNI who begin their NCAA indoor seasons.
Throw FAR, enjoy the journey, and keep working hard- there is lots of time to continue to improve before the meets that count!
Luke Sullivan's record 193'3" discus throw at the 1993 WIAA STATE Track and Field Championships has stood the test of time. Its one of the oldest records in the books. State records can only be set at the WIAA state meet. Luke was a junior at Verona High School and despite winning his third state championship his senior year he couldn't top his own mark on the day of the meet, despite throwing 198'11" that season. We've seen a lot of good discus throwers since 1993, but none have been able to produce the magic Luke created in 1993. If records are made to be broken, it will take someone with a lot of hard-work, determination, great technique, and most importantly the guts to not succumb to the pressure state meet can produce.
Until then, keep watching this video and stay hungry.
