The national record, Madison Wiltrout of Connellsville has graduated and is off to the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. Wiltrout, who tossed an incredible throw of 185-08 as a sophomore to launch herself to the top of the all-time record books for high schoolers and won four consecutive AAA state titles, leaves a void, but as always, Pennsylvania is loaded with talent in the javelin.

The top returner this spring is Mifflin County's Skylar Ciccolini. She had a terrific sophomore campaign that included a District 6 crown and runner-up finish to Wiltrout in AAA at states. That success continued well into the summer. Ciccolini threw 164-09 at the Iron Wood Throwers Classic in Idaho for a new PR. She added two other throws over 160 feet, before capturing the AAU national title in Michigan.

Ciccolini has taken the fast track to success. Next up, as she told MileSplit in the summer, is throwing over 170 feet and possibility take a stab at Wiltrout's record.

Kristen Herr of Lampeter Strasburg is one to watch. She threw over 140 feet at both the Penn Relays and the L-L League Champs, but placed 13th at states (PR is 146-4). The junior should certainly improve on that and challenge for a high finish in AAA this season. North East's Lillian Hill took fourth in AA at states last spring and has a best of 144-5 to her name. Hill will be in the mix for the AA crown.


The top returner from the state meet is Skylar Sherry of Johnsonburg Area. She had a terrific finish to her season, which included throws over 140 at both the District 9 Champs and states. At Ship, she threw 144-0 for runner-up honors to Maura Fiamoncini of Mount Carmel in AA. Moniteau's Cambrie Campbell was third at states in AA with a best of 140-8. Kane Area's Trinity Clark (seventh in AA) is another returning medalist from last year.

In AAA, Kirstin West of Palmyra was fourth at states last year. She had a very consistent end to her junior season that included three throws right around 140 feet in the postseason. Corry Area's Ryann Brundage also took home a AAA state medal last year, placing seventh. Brundage's best throw came when she won the District 10 title with a throw of 142-10.

Ultimately, after Ciccolini, a lot of javelin throwers will be looking to take the next step up to the top ranks this spring. It looks like a fairly wide open field across the board with the state medals appearing to be up for grabs for some breakthrough performers.

Check out the top 500 returners and watch an interview with Ciccolini after her AAU national title this past summer:
