With spring kicking off on Friday, flowers are blooming, birds are chirping, and the grass is sprouting perfectly, especially on the local golf courses. With the greens clipped to perfection, Franklin High School's golf team is poised to have another standout season.
With two returning All-Conference seniors, backed up by two returning juniors, and two returning sophomores, there is no lack of leadership on this year's 14- man squad.
"We have two All-Conference players on our team returning from last year who will be the role models for my young guys and will be mentoring them during practice on and off the course," said second year coach Greg Partington. "I have already met with my seniors and juniors and we have discussed our plans for growing and developing our underclassmen. They will be assigned an underclassmen that they will be responsible for all season, making sure they get to practice or have a ride, practicing with them on drills, and playing with them on the course during practice rounds."
