11/22/2014 What's Your 3:58?
Student Council retained Eddie Slowikowski as the speaker for the annual motivational assembly. Eddie is an All-American track and cross country athlete from Loyola University who was inducted into Loyola’s Hall of Fame. Eddie sought to enrich his life with service and empowerment for himself and others. Whether it was in month-long service projects in Central America or helping the homeless in the city of Chicago, Eddie widened his world view beyond the life of elite training, while applying those same principles to his speaking business. Eddie used music, sound effects, dancing and audience interaction to bring his memorable presentation to Oak Lawn Community High School staff and students. Eddie entertained the Spartans at an all-school assembly, where he shared personal stories of setting goals, showing compassion, and believing in oneself.
11/21/2014 Cross Country Teams Continue Progress, Cap Solid Seasons
When the girls and boys cross country teams headed into the Illinois High School Association Regional Meets recently, both teams knew it would serve as a great measuring stick for progress. After the athletes left it all out on the course and the times were recorded, the boys measured up in second place behind eventual IHSA State Champion Sandburg, and the girls showed a glimpse of possible greatness to come with strong performances from a group constructed mainly of freshmen and sophomores. On the boys' side, the Spartans battled Sandburg, Eisenhower, Shepard, Marist, Brother Rice, Stagg, Mount Carmel and Reavis. Luis Garcia finished in fifth place and was an All-Regional nominee, while Diego Arana and Nick Minnella both ran well placing eleventh and twelfth, respectively. Junior Steve Raybould and Omar Abdelrahman each ran his fastest time of the season. Raybould placed 19th.
