DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – The Rolex 24 at Daytona, a long-running good thing, is destined to become even better.

That fact was underscored Friday both on and off the track during the first day of the annual "Roar Before the Rolex 24" test sessions at Daytona International Speedway.

The Lady Panthers hosted their second home game on Tuesday night when the North Henderson Knights came to the Panther Den.

In the first half of the contest, the game remained close, mostly because neither team seemed to gain their footing. Each team exchanged foul shots and at the end of the half, Franklin held a four point lead with a score of 21-16.
