Samantha Zuch.

Who is she?

She is the most decorated athlete in the history of Napoleon High School and has dominated area high school pools for the past four years.

I’ve worked with her sister Katie for a few years now and agreed to ‘take a few pictures at the pool in front of the board at the high school.’  Little did I know how much of an honor this would be and exactly how grand of an athlete Sami is!

Her accomplishments came early in her high school career.  She placed in the top four her first two years of high school at the Ohio DII girls State Championships.

Sami owns nine Napoleon school records and has broken District records 11 times and is a 13 time All American.

Her junior and senior years, she placed 1st in the 200 and 500yard freestyle.  Her senior year is when she broke the state record in the 200 freestyle.

She was also the anchor of the 200 freestyle relay which placed 1st and set a state tournament record her senior year.

She has been named the GBC swimmer of the year all four years and has been named the Henry County Female Athlete of the year for three years in a row.  Besides swimming Sami has also been named a 1st Team All-Ohio in waterpolo.

As she looks to her future at the University of Utah where she will major in Parks Recreational Tourism and Management, she will continue her swimming career for the Utes.

Congratulations Sami and best of luck in the future!  I hope to be cheering for you one day in the Olympics
