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 March 12 is boys track and field athlete Zach Olejniczak.
Olejniczak was a huge part of the Spartans’ success last Thursday at the South Suburban Conference Indoor Championships. Between his relay and the individual events, he accumulated 26 total points for the team. He was in the third-place 4x160 meter relay and the third-place 4x400 meter relay. Olejniczak also clocked a personal record in the 400-meter dash with a time of 53.2 to earn a third-place finish. Finally, he placed second in the pole vault with a personal record 10-feet, 6-inches. That vault beat his former personal record by a foot.
