Fairfield Boys 200 State Relay Team Displays Spirited Hairless Solidarity

Under the watchful eyes of Principal Bill Rice and Athletic Director Aaron Blankenship, the Indian 200 Relay Team gathers their courage for a "spirit statement" as they prepare for the OHSAA State Swimming Championships.

Seniors Owen Hooper, Jaxon Connelly, Kyle Funk, and sophomore Max Reed.

Normally, Fairfield athletes going to state parade through the halls with the marching band, but -- due to COVID -- a sendoff video of the head-shaving was presented instead during a homeroom Friday. Already looking faster, this relay team is primed for success!
