PRIEST RIVER ó Several Spartan athletes have been nominated for the North Idaho Sports Banquet, scheduled for 5:30 p.m. on April 15 at the CDA Inn.
Hunter Hartwig was nominated for his leadership and excellence on the boys basketball team. The Spartans fell just short of earning a trip to the state championships, but had a run deep into the district tournament including wins over Timberlake and the opportunity to play for the district championship against eventual winner Kellogg. Hartwig regularly scored in the double digits and was a one-man show at times.
Anthony Storro was nominated for his heroics on the varsity football team, which he quarterbacked to a second-place finish in the district and a state playoff game appearance. Storro could throw the ball when needed and was masterful on the ground on offense. On defense, he provided solid coverage as a defensive back.
