Junior Maddox Altman is an Athlete of the Week for Springfield High School. With Maddox’s persistence to improve, he helped his 400-yard freestyle relay team qualify for the district meet this year. Maddox dropped a total of 2.3 seconds off his 100-yard freestyle time as well as 1.4 seconds off his 50-yard freestyle time this season. Coach Kaeli Peer says of Maddox, “Maddox is always the first to volunteer when help is needed and often doesn’t wait to be asked. He is always positive towards his teammates and cheers them on during their races. And just as important, he is positive to himself. Maddox is constantly working to improve his times during meets by working his hardest at practice, stretching on his own time, and taking stroke critique with dedication.” Congratulations, Maddox!
The Athlete of the Week awards are sponsored by the Springfield Athletic Boosters.
