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 13 is senior boys’ track athlete Peter Knapp.
He had a stellar indoor conference meet last Thursday. His night started off as the lead leg of the 4x160-meter relay, helping the team finish in position to score points. He then competed in the long jump and finished fifth with a personal best in the event. Next, he competed well in the 55-meter dash. Knapp finished the night once again as the lead leg of the 4x400-meter relay. He crushed his 400-meter PR by two seconds en route to the fastest 4x400-meter team time for the season by five seconds and a third-place finish.
