Wilson, a University of Tennessee signee, finished out her four-year run in the Virginia High School League Group 5A Track and Field Championships last weekend with two more state titles in the 200m (23.59, -0.1) and the 400m (53.19), her fourth and fifth individual titles overall. Over her high school career she compiled a total of 10 state championships and scored a national class record in the 400m. She posted career best outdoor times of 23.83 in the 200m, 40.78 in the 300mH, 52.06 in the 400m and 57.95 in the 400mH.

While injuries have dampened Herron's hopes over the last year and a half, he was truly transformative across his career and made the rare decision to compete outside his high school state association in his junior season. And there were few athletes who were better over his run. He scored outdoor PRs of 20.93 in the 200m and 46.07 in the 400m outdoors and 20.95/46.31 indoors, culminating his junior indoor campaign with a MileSplit50 win. He's headed off to the University of Southern California.
