Each week the Athletic Department selects a Spartan Athlete of the Week. The recipient for the week of October 21 is girls cross country runner Salsabeel Awwad.
As a freshman, Awwad stepped up last week and earned a spot on the Oak Lawn varsity top 7. She competed at the Illinois High School Association Class 3A Regional and finished as the team’s number-5 runner. She ran a personal best time of 22:36.
“Salsabeel took a whole minute off her previous best time and did it while being sick,” said head coach Caitlyn Glynn. “She scored points and helped the team advance to the sectional meet this weekend. Salsabeel’s hard work and dedication continues to pay off.”
Other nominees for Spartan Athlete of the Week included Amira Biba (Girls Volleyball).
