Each week the Athletic Department and the Spartan Athlete Leadership Team (SALT) selects a Spartan Athlete of the Week. The recipient for the week of January 8 is boys bowler Julian Cruz.
Cruz entered last weekend’s Illinois High School Association Regional meet having bowled exceptionally well at the conference tournament the week before, and he did not let up. He was lights out all day as he finished in sixth place overall. He averaged 221 pins over the six-games and finished with a total of 1,326.
“Julian will now represent us at the Lincoln-Way Central Sectional meet this coming weekend,” said head coach Kevin Walery. “We wish him the best of luck out there.”
The other nominees for Spartan Athlete of the Week were Brian Adams (Boys Basketball) and Veronika Sopczak (Girls Bowling).
