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 May 14 is boys track and field 4x200-meter relay team of Javaris Shorter, Daniel Lillard, Anthony Glover, and Zachary Olejniczak.
The varsity 4x200-meter relay team followed up the school record-breaking performance two weeks ago at the South Suburban Conference Red meet, which produced a conference championship with a championship at the Illinois High School Association Sectional meet on Friday at Morton West.
By winning the sectional race, this team will now represent OLCHS at the IHSA State Finals at Eastern Illinois University this weekend in Charleston. They will compete in a field of the top 23 relay teams in the state.
The other nominee for Spartan Athlete of the Week was Bryan Green (Baseball).
