From Unseeded To Third Place: Lockhart Overcomes Adversity On Mats


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 January 1 is senior wrestler Patrick Lockhart.

Going into the 16-team Wheaton-Warrenville South Wrestling Tournament, Lockhart was unseeded and has battled through tough adversity all season during his senior year. However, last week this Spartan Athletic Leadership Team member upset the number four seed and the number two seed at the tournament to take home third place in the 138-pound weight class.
