Each month the Athletic Department selects a Spartan Athlete of the Month. The recipient for the month of November is girls swimmer Lillian Featherstone.
At the South Suburban Conference meet, she took home gold medals in all four of her swim events. Along the way she helped set a new varsity record in the 200-yard Medley relay and became back-to-back conference champion in the 200-yard Individual Medley and 100-yard Breaststroke.
Featherstone’s efforts helped the Spartans overcome a 29-point deficit and win the conference title. At the Illinois High School Association Sectional meet, she swam her best times of the season in the 200-yard IM and 100-yard Breaststroke.
Other nominees for Spartan Athlete of the Month included: Nate Moran (Boys Bowling), Aleks Potoczny (Dance), Sami Osmani (Boys Basketball), Sarah Lindsay (Girls Bowling), and Marcel Bitner (Wrestling).
