When it mattered most, Conor McFadden made it count.

On the biggest stage for indoor track and field in Pennsylvania at the PTFCA Indoor Championships on Feb. 26, the Central Bucks West junior had one of the best performances of his career in the 200m, clocking a best 21.19 en route to a coveted state title.

That also ranks McFadden at US No. 5 in the event this indoor season.

Now, McFadden can not only add "state champion" to his resume, but also "National Boys Performer Of The Week." He earns the latest weekly performer nod after taking 56-percent of the vote in the week 12 poll.

Moving to the 13th poll of the season, nominated athletes include some of the final crowned state champions of the season, as well as a handful of the nation's early event leaders during outdoor.

Winners of the National Boys Performer Of The Week through the end of the outdoor season will also receive customized backpacks courtesy of TrackBarn.
