On the Record

This year, sophomore Annie Russell as well as her coach John Brune, would like to see her reach her goal of beating the school record of 37 feet in shot put.

“I would like for her this year, to break the school record, to get to State, and medal,” Brune said.

Last year, Russell was one foot away from beating the school’s highest record at 37 feet. At the time, Russell was a freshman and shocked herself by making 36 feet.

“It felt fantastic because I didn’t know that I could do that good; I was a freshman,” Russell said. (brief by mia elliott)

Bulldog Battle

The Boys Golf team is gearing up for tomorrow’s FZS Bulldog Battle tournament at Winghaven Country Club. The meet will start at 8:30 a.m. The team is hoping to recover from a slow start to the season. The team is developing a nucleus of five Varsity golfers after losing seniors at the end of last season.

“We’ve had good players that were high on JV or low on Varsity last year that have kind of stepped up and filled their shoes,” Varsity golfer Kyle Melchior said.

The team will take on Howell next on Monday at 3:30 p.m. (brief by daniel bodden)
