This week was a bit hard to crown performer of the week. With so many amazing performances coming out of Arcadia we could have given this title to about five different people. However, what stood out about Stuart Smith was his ability to take the next step. Smith cracked nine for the first time beating his old PR by over 10 seconds. That's a pretty sizable gap when we are talking about one of the best distance runners in the state. With this performance he has thrown his name in the hat for top contestants in the very deep 3A 3200m race.
