Indiana Performer of the Week Nominees

Gretchen Farley - Park Tudor: Farley raced at the Alex Wilson invitational over the weekend at Notre Dame, the site of her future college endeavors. Farley put up a time of 2:10.84 for 800 meters. Just about a second off her personal best and a time that sits as the current #1 performance in Indiana so far this season.

Rachel Mehringer - Forest Park: Mehringer is one of two nominees to have set an indoor state record over the weekend. The two-time defending state champion in the 100 hurdles set the indoor state record in the 60m hurdles with a time of 8.55 at the ISU Open, also the site of her future collegiate career. The time obviously sits as #1 in Indiana, but is also currently 17th in the nation.

Nayyir Newash-Campbell - Plainfield: The second of our record breakers this week, Newash-Campbell raced to a time of 48.56 for the 400 meters to break the indoor state record by a mere 0.01 seconds. Newash-Campbell is defending state champion in the 400 meters, and this record breaking performance at the MVP Vibe Fest in Chicago gets his senior season off to a great start. 

Nicki Southerland - Delta: Southerland very quietly put up an unreal double at the Thunder HS Open at Trine on Saturday. She started the day by breaking five minutes in the 1600 meters with a 4:55.31 and then followed it up with a 2:12.59 in the 800. A fantastic double this early in the season and both of those times would have been good enough for top 5 finishes at last year's state finals.

Jordan Randall - Warsaw Community: The Warsaw Community freshmen has jumped, literally, onto the track and field scene with a high jump performance of 6'5" at the Thunder HS Open. That jump ranks as the #2 all-time indoor high jump by a freshmen in Indiana history. 

Mason Schmitz - Fall Creek: A rare sight to see a non high schooler here but Schmitz has put up some impressive numbers. At the Indiana Runner Sprint showcase the 8th grader placed 2nd in the 400 meter dash with a time of 51.09 that ranks him #1 in the NATION for junior high athletes. His day was not done there as he came back for the distance showcase and placed 3rd in the 800 with a time of 2:02.90.
