Chase Wilson - Sparta High School - Basketball
This week's Meijer Prep Athlete of the Week hails from Spartan Country! An all-conference performer on Sparta's OK-Blue divison champion and state qualifying boys cross country team, Chase Wilson is off to a tremendous start this winter with the Spartans' boys basketball team. He is averaging 23 points per game and 5 rebounds for a team that is off to a (5-1) start, and his head coach, Lance Roark, who nominated him for this honor, said his team captain is a "dream to coach, a great collaborator, and is developing into a fine leader for the team." A 4.2 student, Chase is in the Top 10 in his class academically, and has been accepted to the University of Michigan and earned several scholarships to other universities as well. In the spring, Chase will compete for his fourth year on the Sparta boys track team, and he also serves as a coach in the Sparta Youth Basketball Program!
