Student Achievement


Congratulations to the FHS Choir and Honors Choir as they earned a Superior rating at their District Competition this weekend. They have qualified for State competition in April.

Congratulations to Payton Burgdorf, who won the Division II District Wrestling Championship at 132 lbs. this past weekend in Norwalk. Payton will move onto the State Wrestling Championships in Columbus this weekend, as he returns as a 4-time State qualifier, as well as a District and Sectional Champion. Payton has allowed only seven points to be scored against him during his Championship run. Good luck to Payton as he heads to Value City Arena on the campus of The Ohio State University.
