The Franklin High School varsity volleyball team started their season off strong when they beat Hayesville twice and Swain County before stumbling against conference rivals Brevard and Pisgah. Showing resilience, the team got back to their winning ways against Smoky Mountain last Thursday.
According to Lady Panthers assistant coach, Bekah Brooks, ups and downs are to be expected when playing in a tough conference like the 2A/3A WNC Athletic Conference.
“We play in a very competitive conference,” she said. “Every team, every game is a test and a challenge, but who wouldn't want to play against good competition?”
