Athlete of the Week - Jesse Slattery

ROCKFORD (WREX) -

Boylan senior golfer Jesse Slattery is our OSF St. Anthony's Athlete of the Week. Slattery won Medalist honors at the 1-A Rock Falls Sectional tournament this past weekend, helping Boylan qualify for state for the first time in eight years as a team.

"I just want to set a good example for the girls that are younger than me to know it's possible and if you work hard you can do it," Slattery said.

Slattery has done that for the Lady Titans, especially Claudia Conness.

"Jesse basically taught me how to play golf because I started my freshman year," Conness said. "So playing with someone like her all four years has been pretty awesome."

Boylan heads to Decatur for the 1-A girls state tournament this weekend. The tournament runs Friday and Saturday.
