Union Catholic's (NJ) Taylor Cox essentially picked up where she left off from last winter. 

She ended her 2022 season with a personal best in the 55mH with an 8.02, which was en route to her victory at the New Balance Nationals Indoor where she clocked an 8.61.

This year, in her fourth 55mH race, she clocked an 8.01 to take the title at the Armory HS Holiday Classic and moved up to No. 3 on the national rankings. Her performance earned her this week's National Girls Performer Of The Week as she accumulated 31 percent of the popular votes. 

It's time now time to vote for this week's indoor NPOTW. 

The poll will end on Friday and winners will be announced the following Monday. It's now time to vote for our next winner.
