FHS girl's varsity team wins conference title
Last Thursday night, the Franklin High School Lady Panthers traveled to Sylva to take on the Smoky Mountain Mustangs to determine the 2A WNCAC champions. The teams had met twice prior to the game with Franklin winning both contests by wide margins. Thursday's game would be no different. The Panthers shot to an early lead and continued to batter the Mustangs through each quarter, eventually securing the win 67-36, thus becoming the conference champions.
Monday night's game began the 2A NCHSAA Women's Basketball State Championship tournament. Franklin enters the tournament as an eighth seed and took on 25th ranked Forbush High School Falcons at the Panther Den.
