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 April 9 is track and field standout Masato Cabalona.
Cabalona sped to his fastest time of his career last Tuesday in the 100-meter dash at the Bremen conference quad meet. Then, on Friday at the 10-team Spartan Invitational, Cabalona placed third in the 400-meter dash with a time of :55.8 and was part of the third-place 4 x 400-meter relay team. He also took part in Friday’s 4 X 100-meter relay team that placed fifth. Overall, he was part of 14 of the team’s 92 total points at the invite.
