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 February 26 is freshman girls track runner Emma McGrath.
She had an amazing day at the Argo Invitational last Saturday. McGrath was the anchor of the first-place 3,200-meter relay team with its best time of the season, and she was the third runner of the third-place 1,600-meter relay, which also ran its best time of the season. In the middle of this amazing day of relays, she also took third in the 800-meter run with a personal best time of 2:34.32. All in all, she personally helped the team score 22 points.
