Each week the Athletic Department selects a Spartan Athlete of the Week. The recipient for the week of January 5 is senior wrestler Anthony Bitner.
Last weekend, he won the 17-team Geneva Tournament at 145 pounds to complete a perfect week with a record of 5-0 on the mat. The varsity captain pinned his way through the tournament, and he earned a tie for the team lead in wins. With the impressive week of dominance, he improved to 24-2 overall on the season.
Additionally, he leads the team in team points, takedowns, technical falls, major decisions, and near falls. Maybe the most impressive part of Bitner’s season is that 20 of his 24 wins have included bonus points for the team.
Other nominees for Spartan Athlete of the Week included Kailey Dolan (Girls Bowling).
