One Fenwick senior forward may be wrapping up his time as a Friar but he’s already continued a family tradition that’s lasted three generations, according to High School Cube News.

As Tom Planek played in one of his last home games as a Friar, John Planek watched from the second to last row of the bleachers opposite Fenwick’s bench.

John Planek and his wife Mary Alice took part in Senior Night events with youngest son Tom before Friday’s game against Mount Carmel, which the Caravan won 59-51.

The 6-foot-5 forward scored nine points Friday, then on Sunday matched Northwestern-bound Scott Lindsey with 14 points in a 57-39 win over St. Ignatius. The game against St. Ignatius was originally scheduled for Jan. 7, but frigid weather pushed it back to the final home game of the Friars’ season.
