Close Battle to the End

Franklin Lady Lions Track & Field

If you looked at the final tally of points from the District 19-3A meet, you say that three teams had a battle to the end and two of those Franklin and McGregor are separated by only 4.5 points, 116.5 to 112.

The Lady Lions came oh so close to claiming the district championship but in the end they came up just short of their goal. Just how close is really amazing to see.

Franklin entered the 1600 meter run, the next to last event of the meet, trailing McGregor 96.5 to 84 points but a stellar finish by Natalie Phillipello to win the race and a 3rd place finish from Makayla Tourville vaulted the Lady Lions into a 100 to 96.5 lead going into the final race of the day.
