Please read about the wonderful accomplishments from our Fairport Students. Check back often for updates! Please feel free to share any success stories with us!
Thank you FHS Graduate Brian Schiffbauer for coming back to Fairpirt today to talk with our student-athletes about the college recruitment experience! Knowledge is power! If you want to take your game to the next level, you need knowledgeable people around you to help you. Good job to those student-athletes who attended today and if you missed the presentation due to classes, etc, please get in touch with Fairport's Head Football Coach Cameron Ruff to get a copy of the zoom link!
Also, please join me in giving a HUGE thank you to Laura Brown Schiffbauer - our Fairport Harbor Athletic Booster Treasurer! Laura has served the Fairport Harbor Athletic Boosters as treasurer for the past 20 years! Even after her own two children finished high school, she was committed to the athletic programs at the school so she stayed involved. Laura has been an incredible volunteer and we are so thankful for her. She handles all the finances, including invoices, payments, tax documents, filings, etc. She is the heart ❤️ of the Fairport Athletic Boosters and has gone above and beyond to support coaches and student-athletes in a ton of behind the scenes work. Thank you Laura for being a volunteer - you are appreciated by all of us! #20yearsandcounting #skipperpride

Fairport Boys Basketball Season ended tonight with a 74-60 loss to Independence in the OHSAA Div 4 Sectional Final - the Skippers finished with a record of 16-8, which is more wins than the last 3 yrs combined. What a ride it’s been! Thank you SENIORS. You were a fun group to watch. You played hard and showed leadership. To the underclassmen: some of you have one year left, some have more - you've got the off season to improve. Get better. Work harder than the person next to you. Push yourselves! You owe it to yourself to be the best version of you that you can be. Go Skippers - get to work! ⚓🏀
