But, as any competitor performing on his or her sports' highest stage, do not expect her stomach to be absent of butterflies.
"Every time I go back ... it's just a nervous feeling," said Wimpy, who won the discus as a junior and finished as a runner-up her sophomore season. "Even though I won state, it's still really nerve-wracking."
Wimpy enters the girls' state meet, which begins today and ends Friday, with another Region 7-AAAA sweep. She won the discus with a throw of 126-11 and the shot put with a 36-4 3/4. The Lady Wildcats' star, who placed in the shot put at state last year, hopes to collect one more state championship.
"I'm very focused on it," Wimpy said. "That's my goal ... to bring [back] another state championship. ... I have people ask me all the time, 'You gonna win another state championship?' It's pressure but, at the same time, it gives you confidence. Hopefully, I'll bring us back another state championship. If not, I really have nothing to prove because I've already won one."
A couple of months after softball season ended, Wimpy -- who is headed to Walters State (Tenn.) Community College on a softball scholarship -- had a tough decision to make in the winter. She thought about not coming back out for track, but ultimately decided to return for another crack at a state championship.
"I'm pretty glad that I did [come back]. I would have regretted it big time if I didn't," the senior said. "The state meet is the last time I'm gonna probably ever pick up a disc."
As far as qualifying throws go, Wimpy had the second-best throw to make it to state. Only one state participant threw a farther qualifying distance than Wimpy -- South Paulding's Jianna Williams with a throw of 127-10.
The next best qualifying throw in the discus came from Glynn Academy's Demery Rose, who reached a distance of 126-4 1/4.
In the shot put, better qualifying throws came from Starr's Mill's Taylor Dupont (41-6 1/2), Williams (41-1 1/2), Jones County's Sharmaine Pinkard (40-5 3/4), Redan's Aneesah Daniels (40-5 1/2), Rose (40-1), Southwest DeKalb's Kenya Wheeler (38-7), Rockdale County's Cree Clark (38-0 1/2), Habersham Central's Tanisha Summerour (37-8), Creekside's Renea Bonner (37-5), and Liberty County's Jana Jones (36-6 1/2).
While Wimpy begins her state title defense today, other Bartow County qualifiers have preliminaries Friday, among them Cartersville's Lindsay Anderson (800-meter run) and Caroline Haupt (100 and 300 hurdles), and Woodland's Idraiah Thompson (100, 200), who also joins Renee Arnold, Jasmin Askew and Tiana Bush on the Lady Wildcats' 4x100 relay team.
Haupt won the 100 hurdles at region, with a time of 15.37 seconds, and was runner-up in the 300 hurdles with a 48.60. She had the fifth-best qualifying time behind Stockbridge's Adeola Popoola (14.90), West Hall's LoNiesha Kearse (14.97), Sandy Creek's Ariel Truitt (15.24), Howard's Anasterasia Terrell (15.34)

The Lady Hurricanes' Anderson, who has been running full-time since the end of soccer season two weeks ago, gave Cartersville two region winners with an 800 qualifying time of 2 minutes, 25.85 seconds.
That time was bested by Spalding's Jenny Wesley (2:17.05), Columbus's Kristina Delpesche (2:19.49), Cedar Grove's Kayla Pryor (2:24.21), Gainesville's Sara Hayes (2:25.09), and Cedar Grove's Christian Pryor (2:25.54).
The Lady Wildcats' Thompson, in her debut season, won the 100 (12.59) and placed second in the 200 (26.13) coming into state.
Woodland's 4x100 relay team ran a 50.37 to qualify for state.
