NEED TO KNOW:

Wilson returns after recording the No. 2 all-time high school outdoor shot put, 55-9 1/4, in 2016. She has already thrown 57-5 1/2 with the indoor shot this winter to get that national record.

Wiltrout set the high school record in the javelin, 185-8, in 2015 but had an injury-hindered campaign in 2016.
