Post Season aspirations

It has always been a fixture this time of year for the Franklin Lady Lions softball team, seeing them in the State playoffs. So it’s not unusual to find them field a team that has post-season aspirations.

Led by seniors Megan McCarver and Darby Hughes, the Lady Lions are on the verge of succeeding once again in making the playoff picture. They have been on the fringes of finding their way in district season and as the season comes down to an end they are close. This will be an important week as the district season wears down. The Lady Lions will need to play well down the stretch to secure themselves a berth. They are currently sitting in 4th place with a two game lead over tow teams tied for 5th place. They helped solidify their position by defeating Rockdale by a score of 6-4, to maintain their edge over the rest of their competition. If they can continue to play well a playoff spot is well within their reach.
