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 19 is senior track and field standout Patrick Michaels.
This past weekend at the Bloom Trail Track Madness Invitational, Michaels won the shot-put event with a personal record throw of 53 feet. The tremendous throw puts him in sixth place in the Illinois High School Association 3A Division and 10th overall in the entire state of Illinois.
The other Spartan Athlete of the Week nominee was Kamryn Hendricks in Track and Field.
