Lady Panthers volleyball makes historic run
Franklin High School’s girls golf team finished the season on a good note this week, as two standouts qualified to represent FHS at the state tournament held at the Foxfire Resort and Golf club in Foxfire Village, N.C. Senior Carly Payseur shot a 103 in both rounds to finish 42nd overall. Sophomore Erin Campbell shot a 106 and 108 to finish 51st overall. f 13 teams and 78 individuals competed at the event. “I was pleased with our season this year,” said head coach David Morgan. “I felt like all the girls improved from last year. I think we need to be more consistent and confident in our shots next year and we will be a much better team in the future and a team to be reckoned with,” he said. “I want to congratulate Carly, Erin, Keirsten, and Sydney on a great season and for setting a lot of FHS gold records this year,” concluded Morgan.
The team finished third in the conference and every player managed to qualify to compete at the regionals tournament in Asheville on Oct. 24. The team placed sixth at the regionals match, an admirable achievement for the young team to build off of.
