||Athletes from Fitch High School and Jay Macejko were vistiors at the February 6 meeting of the Rotary Club of Austintown, both bringing good news. Fitch sophomore Gabby Figueroa, who currently holds the #1 sophomore hammer throw title in the state of Ohio, and #13 nationally, was introduced by Fitch track coach T.J. Konowski.
He also presented Jay Jakovina, senior at Fitch, who holds the #1 high jump title in Ohio. Both will compete at the national level in New York City on March 1-3 if private funds can be raised, as school funds are not allowed to be used. Rotarians passed the hat to help with their expenses, which was also done last year to help Alli Tolich.
