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 April 2 is senior boys volleyball player Donal Nugent.
He led the team with 62 kills, 31 digs, 5 blocks and 4 aces as the Spartans earned second place at the St. Charles East Tournament last week. That second-place finish was the best finish for Oak Lawn at this prestigious tournament in more than 10 years. Nugent’s consistency is what was so impressive as he averaged 12.5 kills per match and hit 22.5 percent.
