Week 8: Bartlett Hawks
The Chicago Sky has selected Bartlett High School as the eighth weekly winner of its 2016 “High School Team of the Week” program. They receive the recognition after being nominated for their athletic and academic achievements, as well as their involvement in the community.
The Bartlett Hawks, who are 19-7 on the season, recently won their conference championship. The Hawks were 9-0 in the Upstate Eight conference and clinched the conference title after defeating Glenbard East.
The players’ hard work in the classroom is demonstrated in the team’s 3.52 overall grade point average on a 4.0 scale. The Hawks positively impact the Bartlett community by working with the Feed My Starving Children organization. Additionally, several players have gone on mission trips and have volunteered in different capacities with their churches. This season, the team hosted a Best Buddies game with South Elgin High School.
As a Chicago Sky “High School Basketball Team of the Week” award winner, the Bartlett Hawks are invited to enjoy a Chicago Sky game, where they will have the opportunity to watch the world’s best female basketball players. At halftime of the game, the team will be honored at center court.
