A half-miler in Texas on Friday scooped up top honors for National Performer of the Week.
And much like a late surge, she swooped into the finish with a flourish.
Marble Falls junior Bailey Goggans ran away with the vote, securing over 56-percent of the tallies in the week-long poll to nab her first win after a week that saw her run 2:07.88 for 800 meters at the Texas Tech Shootout on February 15. The vote spanned the period between February 10-16.
A big congratulations goes out to Goggans on the honor.
Now, let's get to Week 8. Vote for whom you think should win this week's national honor following a big week of action. Voting will end Friday, and we'll recognize the winner every Monday during the unveiling of the newest poll.
