At the New York Relays on April 22, Anthony Collins put together one of the top of his career -- and one of the top track efforts nationally of the week.

The Harry S. Truman (PA) senior had never broken 55 seconds in the 400mH prior to that competition, but on the New York Relays stage, Collins clocked 53.29 to not only PR by nearly two seconds, but win the event.

That also gave him what was at the time a US No. 2 mark in the 400mH, as well as recognition at the National Boys Performer Of The Week in the fifth poll of the season.

But during the final week of April competition, we saw some of the most historic performances of the season to date as athletes broke barriers and records and shined on the national stage.

It's time to cast your vote in the sixth poll of the spring featuring some of the outdoor season's top performers yet.
