Franklin's Lady Panther soccer team has started its season strong by posting a 3-1 overall record and a 2-0 record in the 2-A WNC Athletic Conference.
The team's success could be due to the experience the players have on the field. The team has eight returning players from last year's team and five seniors.
“Our defensive line and keepers are top notch. They are experienced and some of the hardest working athletes I know, constantly trying to improve themselves and playing tough,” said head coach Rita Esterwood.
