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 18 is junior quarterback Marc Virruso.
In his first game as the starting quarterback, Virruso led the charge as the Spartans won their Homecoming game over Argo last Friday night. With Virruso at the helm, the offense racked up 353 total yards and scored 27 points. In fact, he was a big part of it himself, rushing for 87 yards and scoring two touchdowns. Virruso also plays basketball and baseball during the school year.
Other nominees for Spartan Athlete of the Week included Bayan Hammad (Girls Cross Country), Alfred Agapito (Boys Cross Country), Hannah Martinkus (Girls Volleyball), Abel Arias (Boys Soccer), Mike Rollberg (Boys Golf), and Nicole Arias (Girls Tennis).
