Each week the Athletic Department selects a Spartan Athlete of the Week. The recipient for the week of January 20 is boys bowler Steven Hebel.
Hebel finished the year on fire, especially over the last two weeks. He won the Illinois High School Association Chicago Brooks Regional as an individual, and he again led the way for the Spartans at the Lockport Sectional meet. In fact, he knocked down more than 200 pins in four out of six games and had a high game of 225.
Hebel averaged a 206 during the IHSA tournament and was instrumental in helping the team finish in second place at the regional and advance to the sectional meet as a team for the first time in five years.
Other nominees for Spartan Athlete of the Week included David Reyes (Boys Basketball), Evan Zambrano (Wrestling), and Destinee Cwik (Girls Bowling).
