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 2 is senior wrestler Adnane Laanati.
The team captain went 8-2 and placed fifth at the Geneva Tournament last week wrestling at 220 pounds. Of those eight victories, five of them came via pins. For the season, he is currently 15-6.
“Adnane did very well at the tough, 22-team Geneva Tournament last week, and this is only his second season of wrestling,” said head coach Steve Long.
