In our final National Performer Of The Week poll of the indoor season last week, it was one of the top performers at the last indoor national championship of 2023 that secured the honor.

That athlete was Austen Diggs, who had one of the best performance to date at adidas Track Nationals on Mar. 19.

The junior representing LC Express (TX) came away with two titles and two PRs in the boys 60m and 200m in Virginia Beach, taking home the 60m win in 6.92 and logging 21.40 for the 200m trophy shortly afterward.

Diggs secured 57-percent of the vote in the week 15 poll to earn the national nod.

Now, we transition to our outdoor National Performer Of The Week polls as we head into April, and we saw a handful of impressive doubles and nation-leading efforts over the last week of action.

Winners through the outdoor season will receive a Performer Of The Week backpack courtesy of TrackBarn.
