They will all be Missed

Franklin Lady Lions Girls Athletics

It’s a given that if you coach long enough that sometimes you’re going graduate a group of students from your program that will surely be missed. They may have been with you for a while or just made such an impact on the program that their stamp will be left there for awhile.

Such is the case with the senior class of young ladies that graduate this year from Franklin High School. These Lady Lions have been influential in several major programs at the school and especially basketball. Their run this season will long be remembered by their fans and followers.

Coach Watkins will surely miss them for they have been a part of his success for the past four seasons. Tiana Wade, Jessica Medcalf, Larrissa Mendoza were the backbone of the basketball team throughout their high school career. Their contributions to it will be hard to replace and the chemistry they had with each other on the court can never be replaced. Moving forward it will be up to the young ladies that gained experience this season and last season to continue the tradition of winning.
