Xavier Donaldson continues to dominate in the Northeast this indoor season.

The senior out of Seton Hall Prep (NJ) and Princeton signee commandingly took home the National Boys Performer Of The Week honor in the ninth poll of the season behind an impressive 300m showing at the Purple Champions HS Invitational on Feb. 4.

Not only did his winning time of 33.73 earn him a PR by more than a second, but it also made for a new US No. 1 mark in the event at the time. He would also go on to win the 200m in 21.90 at the invitational.

Donaldson won the performer poll with 74-percent of the vote.

The nation-leading efforts continue as we enter the 10th week of voting for the 2023 indoor season, and there's new US No. 1 performers on the ballot after a week full of state championship and Millrose action.
