In the Franklin home opener against T.C. Roberson last Wednesday, the Lady Panthers rose victorious over the Rams 50-44. Despite some foul trouble near the end of the game, a considerably young women's varsity basketball team rallied together for the win. The girls beat West-Oak on 11/30, 62-44.
Building on the momentum started by the women's team, Franklin's men’s varsity basketball team took to the court in the Panther Den to beat the Rams 48-34. At half-time, the Panthers trailed the Rams, but in the fourth quarter Franklin's defense held T.C. Roberson and outscored Roberson for the win in the final stretch of the game. The boys continued their winning streak against West-Oak on 11/30, winning 56-45.
