After an impressive, history making season, the Franklin High School Lady Panthers Soccer team fell to Forbush in the fifth round of the state play offs.

It came down to the wire, with the Lady Panthers falling to Forbush in sudden death overtime, where the team with the most penalty kicks won. The final score was 4-2.

Franklin finished the season with a 17-4-1 record.

Maslin, who played football, basketball, and baseball at FHS, will continue his athletic career on the baseball diamond at Western Carolina University this fall.

A scholar athlete, Maslin was recognized last week as the recepient of the Booster club’s Tom Raby Scholarship. Earlier this year, Maslin’s peers also voted him the 2015 Prom King. Maslin was joined by his family on Wednesday as he officially signed to “Prove his Purple” this fall.

For the past four years, Franklin High School senior and varsity cheerleader Ivy Hawkins has dreamed of becoming an instructor for Universal Cheerleaders Association (UCA). This dream came true on March 22. UCA cheer instructor tryouts are held by invitation only.

Each state holds tryouts in the spring. Hawkins was invited to try out while attending a UCA cheer camp last summer in Panama City, Fla. Tryouts were held in Winston-Salem, where about 40 cheerleaders – college and high school – attended.

After an all-day tryout and the final cuts were made, Hawkins was one of two high school girls who were picked for the North Carolina team. She will work all summer as a cheerleading instructor for UCA’s southeast team.

Hawkins is the first cheerleader in FHS history to make this team. She is the daugher of Jeff and Maria Hawkins of Franklin.
