Each month the Athletic Department selects a Spartan Athlete of the Month. The recipient for the month of February is junior boys basketball player Sami Osmani.
During the month, Osmani averaged 21.2 points per game, 5.3 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1 steal in nine games. Those numbers include a 20-point, 6-rebound, 3-assist, and 4-steal stat line in a win over then No. 24 Lindblom. He also had 21 points in a loss to No. 20 Riverside-Brookfield, 18 points in an overtime win at Reavis, and a 22-point performance vs. No. 10 Marian Catholic in a season-ending loss in the Illinois High School Association Regional semifinal.
Most impressively, Osmani was named as the South Suburban Conference Red Player of the Year in a unanimous coaches’ vote.
Other nominees for Spartan Athlete of the Month included Jason Carr (Boys Track), and Madeline McGrath (Girls Track and Field).
