The FZN girls swim team recently hosted their annual "Panther Relays" at the St. Peters Rec-Plex. The event is unique in that it featured 12 different relay events, many of which are not typically conducted at regular season events. There was no team score kept at the event, but the top 3 finishers in each event earned medals. The Panthers took home their fair share of medals, as four different varsity relay teams and one JV squad placed in the top three.
Panther Relay medalist:
4X100 IM - Silver (Michaela Russ, Gwen Raziq, Jordan Brown, Cicely Berzack)
4X50 Butteryfly - Bronze (Lauren Schwartz, Jordan Brown, Gwen Raziq, Cicely Berzack)
4X50 Backstroke - Silver (Michaela Russ, Gwen Raziq, Mya Walls, Cicely Berzack)
4X50 Breaststroke - Gold (Michaela Russ, Gwn Raziq, Mya Walls, Cicely Berzack)
So far this season two different Panther swimmers have earned State Consideration times in individual events. Freshmen Gwen Raziq in the 50 freestyle and 500 freestyle, Senior Michaela Russ in the 100 breaststroke and 100 freestyle. Russ is the defending conference champion in the 100 breaststroke.
In January, the Lady Swim Cats will host their own Invitational meet at the Rec-Plex. The FZN Swimming and Diving Invitational is slated for January 6th. The event has a 9:00 am start time.
