A wild week of voting culminated with over 10,000 tallies being cast for National Performer of the Week presented by New Balance for Week 5. 

It came down to three athletes receiving over 2,000 votes apiece. 

There was Cheyenne Mountain's Kaden Levings, the winner of the Liberty Bell Invite; Shawnee Mission North's Micah Blomker, the recently-minted Kansas all-time leader for 5K; and Severna Park's James Glebocki, who led his squad to a win at PTXC12.2. 

In the end, though, Levings ran away with it by the Friday deadline, closing with 4,472 votes and over 41-percent of the tallies. 

Levings posted a career-best time of 15:00.00 for 5K as he secured the biggest win of his career at the Liberty Bell Invite. 

A big congrats goes out to all the nominees from this past week. 

Now let's move on to Week 6 of the NPOTW XC poll. 

Make sure you vote for whom you think should win this week's honor. Voting will end Friday, and we'll recognize the winner every Monday during the unveiling of the newest poll. Better yet, each boy and girl winner will win a pair of New Balance shoes.

We are requesting winners (or their parents or coaches) from each week to email Cory Mull at and Olivia Ekpone at to notify us of your contact.

Vote below in the poll and let us know your thoughts in the comments. You can also vote in our National Girls Performer of the Week poll.
