Each month the Athletic Department and the Spartan Athlete Leadership Team (SALT) selects a Spartan Athlete of the Month. The recipient for the month of March is senior boys track and field athlete Patrick Michaels.
For the second consecutive month, Michaels earned a nomination for this elite honor. Earlier in March he continued his incredible progress in the shot put. He increased his personal record by another 2-feet-8-inches to 56 feet at the Argo Indoor Invitational. His 56-foot attempt set a new shot put record for the meet.
