St. Luke's and Proctor High School join forces

Encouraging student athletes to excel both on and off the field, St. Luke’s has forged a meaningful partnership with Proctor High School. At the heart of this collaboration lies a dedicated team committed to nurturing the potential of every athlete who walks through the doors of St. Luke's Proctor Fitness Center.

Jessica Wojtysiak, PT, DPT, a proud graduate of Proctor High School and former student athlete herself, understands firsthand the significance of this partnership. “The fact that students can get physical therapy right where they go to school removes a huge barrier,” she said. “The quicker they can get in, the quicker they can get back to their sport. Go Proctor Rails!”

Complementing Jessica's expertise is Strength and Conditioning Coordinator Tony Radloff. Beyond building the students’ physical strength, Tony is dedicated to teaching essential life lessons to the athletes he trains.

"I want to help these kids be the absolute best they can be,” he said. “Through our strength and conditioning program, they're not just improving physically. They're learning how to cultivate resilience and perseverance, and how to navigate setbacks. These are skills that will serve them long after they leave the weight room."

This strength and conditioning program is designed to maximize the potential of student athletes. In addition to Tony’s one-on-one work, there is also a two-month summer camp led by coaches with impressive academic backgrounds and extensive experience. From plyometrics to agility drills, each session of camp is intentionally planned to hone the skills necessary for success in specific sports.

Throughout the year, Tony and Jessica also work together to meet the diverse needs of student athletes. “I often hand off students who are seeing me for physical therapy to Tony to work on strength and conditioning,” said Jessica. “We do this throughout the entire school year. I think that’s one of the things that makes this partnership so amazing.”

Physical therapy appointments are also available to the broader community. Jessica, whose passion includes helping weekend warriors pursue their passions, emphasizes that it’s not just about the students. "We're here to support the entire community in staying active and healthy,” she said.

Physical therapy is available throughout the region. To schedule an appointment, call 218.249.6040 or request one online.
