Congrats to this week’s Athlete of the Week – Erik Gottmann!
Erik is a senior at Ballston Spa High School. He will have four varsity letters this year, starting with the ski team. The ski team’s season finished just in time for him to join the wrestling team, a sport he hadn’t competed in since eighth grade. Erik came away from this year’s wrestling season with eight wins and only one loss. He is currently playing on the football team, and will finish his high school sports career at Ballston Spa with lacrosse at the end of the school year.
Erik has accomplished all of this while maintaining a 95 GPA. He just received a four-year full-tuition Army ROTC scholarship to the Virginia Military Institute, where he will continue playing lacrosse at the Division I level.
