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 September 4 is Girls Tennis senior Larissa Ptak.
Ptak competed against some highly competitive competition last weekend at the Grayslake Central Tournament and came away with a first-place finish. This individual title came on the heels of finishing in second place at the Bolingbrook Invitational the weekend before. She is proving to be a great all-around player for the Spartans. She improved her season record to 4-1 and continues to dominate wherever she is placed in the lineup.
Other nominees for Spartan Athlete of the Week included Kameron McNicholas (Football), Mike Majcherek (Boys Cross Country), and Amanda Bulow (Girls Volleyball).
