Oak Lawn’s Meyers recognized as top SSC hoops coach
Oak Lawn High School girls’ basketball coach Janet Meyers was recently feted as the South Suburban Conference Coach of the Year in her sport at an awards dinner at Gaelic Park.
The Lady Spartans reigned as SSC Red champs during the 2012-13 season.
With the baseball team’s divisional crown and five second-place finishes also factored in, Oak Lawn athletics ranked fifth among 14 schools in the chase for the SSC President Cup’s Award, which goes to the school that has the highest cumulative placements in the league’s 22 sponsored sports. Gaining runner-up positions for the Spartans were the girls’ volleyball, boys’ volleyball, boys’ bowling, boys’ track and cheerleading squads.
Oak Lawn did even better in the conduct category, where it wound up third for the SSC Sportsmanship Award. Oak Forest captured that honor, while Lemont claimed the President’s Cup.
