Unexpected snow showers covered Western North Carolina Monday and Tuesday, giving the Franklin High School sports teams a break from their competitive schedule.
Both the FHS varsity baseball and softball teams were coming off losses from last Friday's games against Pisgah. The baseball team was able to start its game off competitively, holding Pisgah scoreless after the first inning, but for the remainder of the game the Panthers were unable to hold off the onslaught that was to come. The Bears were able to drive in runs in every other inning of the game, while Franklin scored one run in the second, before losing 7-1. The loss moves Franklin to a 3-3 record with a 1-2 record in the conference. The Panthers hosted Smoky Mountain yesterday at the Macon Middle School. The game was originally scheduled for Tuesday, but was canceled due to inclement weather.
