The Lady Panthers saw their season come to an end last Friday night when they took on Fred T. Foard (22-5), losing to the Tigers for the third straight year. The team had hoped to avenge losses from the 2011 and 2012 seasons, but were unable to pull off the win, losing 2-1 in the third round of the state play-offs. Despite the loss, the team enjoyed a highly successful year posting a 15- 6 record overall.
“The Franklin High School softball team had a great season,” said FHS principal Chris Baldwin. “They represented us very well in the state playoffs, but Fred T. Foard has seemed to have our number for the past few years.”
