Following a crazy win in the final breakneck moments of The Desert Twilight Festival last week, Highland High senior Leo Daschbach earned National Performer of the Week honors for his efforts.
The blue-chip runner ran the second fastest 5K recorded in high school cross country, crossing the line in 14:14.26, and earned his first Desert Twilight title.
A fantastic race for the Arizona athlete, and a big kudos goes out to Leo.
