The Indiana State Championships marked a big-time moment for quarter-miler Nayyir Newash-Campbell.

The Plainfield senior and University of Pennsylvania signee had one of the best races of his career at the state meet with a 46.98 effort to win the 400m. That mark not only gave him his second performance of the season under 47 seconds, but also earned him the 400m state meet record in Indiana.

Newash-Campbell additionally earned National Boys Performer Of The Week honors for the impressive race in the week 11 poll, earning 74-percent of all votes cast.

We're nearing the end of state championship season, and this week's performer poll features some of the last state title-winners to be crowned in the spring of 2023.
