Robert Wagner is finding some rare air. He is reaching elite heights. He is soaring to success. He is doing it all for the Oak Lawn Community High School boys track and field team. And with the records he set and the medals he has earned, he has been selected as the Spartan Athlete of the Month for March.
Wagner opened the month at the Argo quad meet by running the anchor leg of the first-place 4x160 meter relay, taking first place in the long jump, and taking first in the high jump. For the long jump, he soared over 21 feet, which is Top 10 in the state of Illinois. For the high jump, he cleared 1.9 meters, which is also Top 10 in the state.
Later in the month, he qualified for the Illinois Top Times Invitational in high jump, and he finished first with a personal record of 2.0 meters. That ranks him second in the state and ties a school record.
