The junior from The Bullis School (MD) hurdled to a 7.89 in the 55mH and became the nation's third-fastest sprinter. Her victory was not only a new personal best for her, but it was her first time going under 8-seconds in this event. 

Over the course of the week, Flynn earned 53 percent of the votes to be named this week's winner. 

It's time now time to vote for the next National Girls Performer Of The Week. 

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