As their season record indicates, the Franklin Lady Lions are off to an unusually tough and slow start by their standards this softball season.
The size factor had not been a factor in the playoffs for the Franklin Lions as they cruised through the Bi-District and Area rounds.
It may take them a little time to put the season together but I fully expect that when all is said and done that the Franklin Lady Lions will be a force in the sport of softball.
They had managed to overcome all the obstacles they faced this season except one the Academy Bumblebees, until Tuesday, when they ran into another one in the form of the Teague Lady Lions.
The Franklin Lions are still marching toward that elusive State Championship, courtesy of two big wins this past week in the opening rounds of the playoffs.
