Not running alone...

Franklin Lady Lions Track & Field

One might think that if you were the lone representative of your team at an event you might feel like you are alone. If you were someone representing a tight knit community like the town of Franklin then you certainly know what support means.

For weeks now nothing but outside and inside support has been bestowed on the town after the disastrous tornado tore through their community. To see the town work together you know there’s no way that anyone representing the city would ever be alone.

This coming weekend one of the prize representatives of the team and one of the top distance runners in the State takes the track in Austin representing the Franklin Lady Lions. Natalie Philipello has been one of the top runners in both the 1600 meters and the 3200 meters.
