Ben Sheckler, Sparta Athlete of the Week

In writing articles for “My Town,” I would like to highlight kids that always seem to be doing good deeds along with all their studies in school. Too often the publicity is focused on the negative side of teens.

I would like recognize Ben Sheckler, a senior at Sparta High School. Ben is the captain of the basketball team, averaging 16 points and 11 rebounds per game. He also is a great baseball player for the school.

Ben carries a 3.57 GPA in school. Great job Ben!
