Vanessa Agrusa named WNCAC Player of the Year.

Following their outstanding seasons, Franklin High School boys and girls varsity basketball players were among those in Western North Carolina to receive All-Conference postseason honors for the season.

According to girls' coach Scott Hartbarger, the four ladies to be named to the Western North Carolina Athletic Conference All-Conference teams were big on defense and each had shining moments that led the Lady Panthers well into the playoffs.

Senior Guard Savannah Teague was named to the All- Conference squad according to Hartbarger, because of her defensive drive and quick feet under the goal.


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."

AVONDALE, Ariz. - Yes, the best car won Sunday’s CampingWorld. com 500 at Phoenix International Raceway — but one-man juggernaut Kevin Harvick had to hold off charging Jamie McMurray on the final restart with 12 laps left to notch his fourth straight victory at the one-mile track.

The box score will show that the reigning NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champ led 224 of 312 laps, but McMurray took his best shot on the Lap 301 restart, driving hard to the inside of the race winner and, for the briefest of moments, clearing Harvick’s No. 4 Stewart-Haas Racing Chevrolet off Turn 2.
