Welcome to Frankenmuth Athletics!

Our philosophy is to encourage student-athletes to participate in interscholastic competition that contributes to an enhanced level of physical fitness, strategic thinking, situational analysis, and interpersonal skill. We accomplish this in the team environment that rewards discipline, loyalty, and fair play.

We are proud to offer 20 varsity sports for students to participate in, and hope everyone finds something that fits their interest!

Meet Kevin Schwedler, Athletic Director

Kevin has been part of the Frankenmuth family for the past 6 years and is excited for year 7! He’s always had a passion for athletics, and is proud that Frankenmuth Athletics offers over 20 varsity sports teams – which is unique for a Class B school. Kevin appreciates that the Frankenmuth community is passionate about its kids and supports academics & athletics alike.

Some fun facts about Kevin include that he loves camping, boating and four wheeler rides, and that he’s currently reading Salty Piece of Land by Jimmy Buffett. He wishes he could hit a golf ball straight, and is looking forward to having full and normal seasons this year – he’s missed the high fives and handshakes after events!

* And kudos to Junior Mary Richmond! (aka troublemaker)

Athletic Director Kevin Schwedler frequently kids FHS Cross- Country star Mary Richmond because of the dent she is making in the school athletic budget.

“Mary is the top runner in school history, breaking record after record since her freshman year,” Kevin points out. “So, I always joke with her about how she’s costing me money every time we need to update the record board.”

Most likely Kevin will be making more record board updates in the future as Mary will return as a senior to run cross-country next year.

She has been All-State her freshmen, sophomore, and junior years. And a year ago, she finished second in state at Division II.

This year, Mary won the Tri Valley Conference 8 and Tri Valley All Conference meet which featured 17 teams. She was also the Outstanding Female Athlete at the Greater Flint Championships, was named the Star of Stars at the Holly Festival of Races for top female athlete in all classes, won the Saginaw County Championship, won Regionals for the third straight year, and captured third at state.

“Best of all, Mary’s a great student,” said Kevin. “She earned All-Academic, All-State and she’s a wonderful unselfish teammate.”

“Mary doesn’t let her accomplishments go to her head,” said her coach Mike Snyder. “She’s a very humble person.”

Mary’s school record time currently stands at 17:56.0 and see has her sights set on running in college.

She started competing in cross country in seventh grade and she’s never looked back.

“I have loved participating in cross-country ever since,” Mary said. “The team feels like a part of my family.”
