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 August 28 is senior volleyball player Allison Yacko.
Yacko led the Spartans with strong outside hitting as she recorded 22 kills, 19 digs and an ace in three matches last week. The Spartans took on Chicago Christian, Shepard and TF North in that stretch. The varsity team improved its overall record to 3-2 and has started the South Suburban Conference schedule with a mark of 1-1.
Other nominees for Spartan Athlete of the Week included Nick Puente (Football), Angel Reyes (Cross Country), and Mike Rollberg (Boys Golf).
