The 2013 Allen County Pork Princess garnered Grand Champion Market Hog, Reserve Champion Heifer, Reserve Senior Pig Showmanship and first place hog and beef this year.
The Grand Champion trophy is one she’ll treasure.
“Show day is by far the best part of the fair,” she said. “Grand Champion has fulfilled by life-long dream”
The daughter of Eric and Gina Fritz has been in 4-H for eight years and is currently the vice president of her club. She is also president of Delphos FFA. Fritz said the experience of memberships has been invaluable.
“FFA has instilled in me a great sense of responsibility along with many other assets.
“I have learned work ethic and how to have fun. Being a part of both groups has become a great part of my life.”
She began showing pigs at the fair when she was 8 years old.
“A close friend of my dad asked me to show a pig for him and after that, I was hooked,” she said.
She added beef to her schedule because she enjoyed being in the steer barn and wanted to be a part of it.
