Each week the Athletic Department selects a Spartan Athlete of the Week. The recipient for the week of May 6 is girls track and field athlete Madeline McGrath.
Last weekend, McGrath was able to take first place at the Illinois High School Association Reavis Sectional track meet with a pole vault of 9 feet, 9 inches. And with that vault, she punched her ticket to the IHSA State Finals in Charleston, at Eastern Illinois University for the second year in a row.
Other nominees for Spartan Athlete of the Week included Zach Olejniczak (Boys Track), Marlene Favila (Softball), and Marc Virruso (Baseball).
