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 May 8 is girls track and field athlete Madeline McGrath.
McGrath, who competed on the varsity team all season, proudly took third place in the pole vault and sixth place in the triple jump at the Illinois High School Association Sectional meet at Reavis last week. In addition to being a two-time varsity all-conference champion in pole vault, she recently set a new school record in the pole vault with a mark of 9 feet, 6 inches.
Other Spartan Athlete of the Week nominations included Patrick Michaels (boys track and field), Jake Lindner (boys volleyball), and Chad Cwik (baseball).
