4/24/2015 Spartans Play Tribute to True American Hero
The South Suburban Conference asks its baseball teams to support an important cause each season. This year the SSC chose Wounded Warriors. Therefore, the baseball program chose to honor United States Marine Corporal Conner T. Lowry, the nephew of English teacher Jennifer Jepsen. Conner made the ultimate sacrifice on March 1, 2012 in Afghanistan. Conner was a graduate of Brother Rice High School, so head baseball coach Bill Gerny found the games against Brother Rice to be a natural fit to honor Conner because it would be meaningful to both teams.
