STUDENT-ATHLETES OF THE WEEK, ZACH HILL AND ZANE LATTIG

January 20, 2020


We are excited to feature Zach Hill and Zane Lattig, two Olentangy Orange High School student-athletes! These athletes are being recognized as a result of their commitment to young readers in their district.

Zach plays football and lacrosse at Olentangy Orange High School. In additional to enjoying sports in general, Zach loves history. He has been a volunteer with our literacy outreach efforts for two years. Zach values our program for the opportunity it presents to meet new people while reading to elementary-aged students. In addition, he enjoys seeing the faces of second graders light up when the athletes begin reading. 

Zane plays football and baseball at Olentangy Orange High School. He is also a member of the National Honor Society. Zane recently committed to attend and play baseball at the University of Charleston. During his four years of service as a 2nd & 7 volunteer, Zane has enjoyed seeing the smiles of second grade students and has enjoyed answering their many questions.
