Lions are out front early

The Franklin Lions are now out front in the district race but they have plenty of company. Among the challengers should be Rockdale, Cameron, Little River Academy, Jarrell, Lexington, Hearne, and Rogers.All look to have competitive teams and could challenge for one of the four playoff berths available.

The Lions defeated Lexington before the holidays 55-30 and after a trip to Allen over the break, they returned to district play on Tuesday against the Cameron Yoemen. In what turned out to be a typical tough outing for the Lions, Franklin used a late charge to hold off the Yoemen 64-58 for their second win in district play.
