Macon's Harland trekking country during indoor track season

Caelan Harland continues to perfect his craft, even if it means early wake-up calls and long trips.

The Macon standout is traversing the county to prepare for the 2024 outdoor season. The two-time state pole vault championship has competed in Kansas, Nevada and Michigan since December.

He set a new personal record with a jump of 5.05 meters at the Prentice Gudgen Invitational at Pittsburg State on Jan. 6.

Since then, he's been at the UCS Spirit National Pole Vault Summit in Nevada, a meet in Ann Arbor, Michigan and the Rock Chalk Open in Lawrence, Kansas. This upcoming weekend, he will be in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

He's jumped between 4.88 meters and 5.05 meters this winter.

Harland joins Mo Mile Split to talk about the indoor season, preparing for the MSHSAA season and his goals for this spring.
