Memphis Central (TN) standout Jordan Ware had a championship performance for the ages in Tennessee.

At the TSSAA Division AAA state meet on May 25, Ware found another gear, clocking a new state record of 10.13 (+2.0) in the 100m and winning the 200m title in a personal best 20.63 (+1.6).

That moved Ware, who had never dipped under 10.28 prior to that 100m title race, to US No. 2 this season. He also now ranks as the eighth-fastest 200m performer this spring.

Now, Ware can add one additional accolade to his resume following his state championship efforts -- a National Boys Performer Of The Week award.

Ware secured 70-percent of votes to win the performer award in the week 10 poll.

This week's poll comes after a jam-packed few days of action on the track, action that saw athletes make history, climb to the top of the national rankings and secure even more state titles.
