BRISTOL, Tenn. –We’ve seen this script before, Matt Kenseth holding off Kasey Kahne in the closing laps of a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race.

It happened at Las Vegas in March. It happened at Kansas in April. And it happened again in Saturday’s Irwin Tools Night Race at Bristol Motor Speedway.

On inferior tires and with a fuel tank bordering on empty, Kenseth won a heated battle against Kahne to claim victory in Saturday’s Irwin Tools Night Race at Bristol Motor Speedway, after Kahne moved into the second position on Lap 473 of 500.

The victory was Kenseth’s fifth of the year and it guaranteed the driver of the No. 20 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota at least a wild card spot in the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup.


FHS Cross Country looks to add experience to this year’s roster

Franklin High School’s cross country teams will travel to Henderson County for their first meet of the season at Jackson Park on Saturday with 40 teams present for the competition. Women's coach Denise Davis doesn't know how it's going to go, but she's hoping for good things.

“We haven't even run a 5k yet, but I think Saturday's meet will give us a good idea of where we're at,” she said.


FHS women’s golf team prepares for season

Franklin High School's women's golf team is teeing up and getting ready to begin the season Monday when they travel to Cherokee for their first match.

With one returning player, this will likely be a year full of lessons for the majority of the team who only began to play recently. If they are anything like Erin Campbell, the sole returning player, then they will learn quickly and hone their skills to help the team do well this season.


When school begins this year, Franklin area athletes will receive care from Angel Medical Center (AMC) instead of Healthworks. The Board of Education unanimously voted to award AMC the district's sports medicine contract to save money.

The school system's previous sports medicine contract called for an athletic trainer to attend all home and away varsity football games for a flat fee and then any other sport coverage such as basketball games, track meets, JV and MMS football games and any playoff game hosted by FHS, at a rate of $22.50 an hour.

In addition to services of the athletic trainer, the previous contract called for $2,500 a year for medical supplies and an additional $2,500 for mandatory coverage for football practices.
