A fast-riser from Colorado won this past week's National Performer of the Week honor.
After claiming his fifth-straight win, and his first cross country 5K effort under 15 minutes, Green Mountain's Grahm Tuohy-Gaydos secured over 70-percent of the vote and just over 1,600 tallies.
The senior was recognized with the top honor by virtue of his 14:57.30 from the East Meet on Sept. 26. The effort currently sits as the No. 14 best performance in the U.S.
A big congrats goes out to Tuohy-Gaydos on the honor.
Now let's move on to Week 7 of the National Performer of the Week.
