Similar to Affolder, on the girl's side Abbe Goldstein is looking to double up in the distance events she looks to win a state title in the mile and the 3K. Last but certainly not least we have to talk about the Knochness Monster, Jordan Geist, as he could make a serious attempt at Olympic gold medalist Ryan Crouser's high school national record in the shot put.
