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 7 is girls track and field athlete Maddie McGrath.
She had a performance for the books at the Illinois High School Association Girls Track and Field Sectional in very cold weather last Friday. It was cold, and Maddie knew it was her year as long as she was consistent at every vault. Well, that is exactly what happened. McGrath became the 2018 sectional champion and punched her ticket to compete in the IHSA State Finals at Eastern Illinois University in Charleston.
