AREA FEMALE ATHLETE: Flyers’ Weisz revels in great week


It was a banner end to a brilliant prep career.

Whitney Weisz finished her Little Falls Flyers swimming career in the most appropriate place Nov. 19 — on top.

The five-time Class 1A state swimming entrant won the 100 freestyle and finished second in the 50-yard free. More fitting than those two individual accomplishments was her participation in her fifth 200 freestyle relay. The senior anchored the Flyers to 15th place.
