During a baseball game last week at North Buncombe, Franklin’s Dillon Cochran raced back in left field while tracking a fly ball.
Out of 32 games featuring 64 teams in the first round of the 2-A NCHSAA softball playoffs, only one had a squad score more than 15 runs.
That team was Franklin.
Franklin’s five seniors on the softball team are enjoying a memorable final year playing together.
For the second straight year, Franklin’s baseball team went into the final game of the regular season with a conference championship on the line.
All Franklin coach Jay Brooks wanted was steadiness from his athletes going into the Mountain Six Conference track and field championship.
