It's no small feat pulling off the 800m-1,600m distance double. But at the Kansas Relays held April 14-15, Wyatt Haughton made it look easy.

Haughton, the senior out of Shawnee Mission East (KS), not only won both the 800m and 1,600m crowns at the elite high school meet, but he posted a 1:51.42 personal best performance in the 800m to move into the top 15 nationally in the event.

He would cruise to a 4:18.05 1,600m win to secure the two titles.

For his efforts, Haughton is the latest boy to earn the National Performer Of The Week title, taking 44-percent of the vote in the fourth poll of the season.

Our latest poll comes after a weekend loaded with historic marks and near record-breaking performances, so be sure to cast your vote.
