The FHS varsity soccer team continued to show its dominance and the reason behind its number one conference ranking on Monday when they took on rival Smoky Mountain Mustangs.

The Panthers shot to a quick lead when they went up 2-0 in the first half. They sealed the win with one more goal in the second and took home the win with a score of 3-0.

The win moved the Panthers to a 7-0 record. They traveled to North Henderson yesterday to take on the 3-5 Knights.

FHS soccer will take the home field again on Monday when they host the East Henderson Eagles.


The 5-5 Franklin High School varsity volleyball team hosted the 4-5 TC Roberson Rams on Monday evening at the Panther Den.

The Lady Panthers opened the contest strong taking the first set by a score of 25-19.

They were unable to hold on to their momentum though and lost the next three sets, 21-25, 22-25, and 16-25.

Franklin looked to rebound on Tuesday when they hit the road to take on the West Henderson Falcons, but lost the match, 3-1.

Today, they host the Tuscola Mountaineers at home where they will look to get back in the win column.



JOLIET, Ill. - For Brad Keselowski, this year's Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup started the same way it did in 2012—with a victory at Chicagoland Speedway.

Clearly, Keselowski would love to see the Chase end the same way it did two years ago—with a series championship.

Needing an extra pit stop to tighten a loose wheel under caution on Lap 183 of 267 in Sunday’s MyAFibStory.com 400 at the 1.5-mile track, Keselowski restarted 16th on Lap 187, mired in traffic behind a gaggle of lapped cars.

But with a determined charge through the field and a couple of opportune cautions in the final 35 laps, Keselowski regained lost track position and put himself in position to make a dramatic race-winning move after a restart on Lap 250.

With third-place finisher Kyle Larson battling Kevin Harvick for the lead on Lap 252, Keselowski powered between the two cars off Turn 2 and grabbed the lead.
