Each week the Athletic Department selects a Spartan Athlete of the Week. The recipient for the week of March 2 is boys track and field athlete Mykel Washington.
In only his second time ever trying the triple jump in practice, newcomer Washington was able to improve his long jump by a total of four feet in just one week. He is dedicated to track and field and is always looking for opportunities in practice to improve. With continued improvement, he will be a key piece of the South Suburban Conference Red lineup for Oak Lawn. He is starting to become a leader of the team by taking charge during the meet or helping out a struggling athlete.
Other nominees for Spartan Athlete of the Week included Megan Berry (Girls Track).
