Posted by Dawn O'Sullivan at Dec 15, 2017 4:52AM PST

Hope December is going well so far! We are almost to the halfway point of the season….hard to believe!

Just some reminders…….

Don’t forget your travel release form, should you wish for your child to ride home with you after the meet. Your child may give this form to the swim/dive team manager or it can be given to one of us. THIS IS A SCHOOL REQUIREMENT FOR ANYONE WHO IS NOT RIDING THE BUS BACK TO THE SCHOOL AFTER THE MEET.

As we get into winter weather, please watch twitter closely for any delays, cancellations and/or closings. Information pertaining to practices in this regard can be found on Team Pages under documents/information/practice policies. Kids can also do a phone tree for the same.

Saturday is our County Meet!!! You may want to send food and drink with your child as none will be provided beforehand.

Look for more information to come regarding the training trip on December 28th and 29th!

We received numerous compliments from IHSAA, the Officials and other parents about how everything ran so smoothly and how they enjoyed themselves!

So, thank you for helping!!!!! That meet would not have been possible without all of you!!!!

This week breakfast will be served on Tuesday and Friday 

We are at Plainfield tomorrow night and the dive team competes at Fishers on Saturday! Don’t forget your travel release forms should you want your child to ride home with you after the meet. You may give these forms to one of us or have your child give it to the swim/dive team manager.

FRANKLIN
NOV 18, 2017

The Franklin Community Girls’ swimming and diving team kicked off the season with a 155 – 67 win over county rival Center Grove.

“We gave our freshman a chance to swim some desired events in their high school debut in hopes of giving them some momentum to begin the year. It’s a great group of girls and they’ve definitely worked hard to prove themselves.”

The Franklin freshman did just that. Franklin won 11 of the 12 events to take the 86 point victory.

The 200 Medley Relay team of Jessie Fraley, Kabria Chapman, Carla Gildersleeve, and Ella Pheifer kicked off the meet taking the first event with a time of 1:49.58. The Grizzly Cub women followed up that win with a trio of event wins in the 200 Freestyle, 200 Individual Medley, and the 50 Free. Lina Caudill took the 200 Free with a lifetime best of 2:00.96.

Immediately following, it was Freshman Lillian Lacy dominating the field in the 200 IM with a time of 2:22.12. Another freshman, Gracey Payne would go on to round out the first half of the swimming, winning with a quick early season time: 24.88 in her own high school debut.

Franklin diving had impressive morning performance from Madi Wheeler, who took 2nd in the event.

Coming out of the diving break, it was junior Ali Terrell with the 100 Butterfly win in a time of 58.63.
Sarah Hoffman, a sophomore, put together a solid swim to win the 100 Freestyle with a quick time: 54.49. She was accompanied by Gracey Payne and Jessie Fraley rounded out the top 3 finishes with times of 55.30 and 55.68, respectively.

On the distance side of things, junior Carla Gildersleeve put on a performance throughout the long distance 500 freestyle race. Her time of 5:07.85 won the race by almost 20 seconds.

The lady cubs continued their streak of winning, picking up wins in the 200 Freestyle Relay and the 400 Freestyle relay. Fraley, Chapman, Caudill, and Gildersleeve had a close win in the 200 Freestyle over another Franklin relay. The 400 Freestyle team of Fraley, Payne, McCahill, and Terrell also impressed with their winning time of 3:42.15.

Lastly, the Franklin ladies scored wins in the 100 Backstroke and 100 Breaststroke; the winning athletes were freshman Lillian Lacy and freshman Kabria Chapman, respectively. Lilly Lacy raced out to a commanding win in the 100 Backstroke (1:03.28) while Kabria Chapman had a very impressive high school debut with a time of 1:09.16.

The Lady Cubs alongside the FCHSSnD boys team will host the Bull Dogs of Columbus North tomorrow, November 21st at the Chick Newell Natatorium in Columbus (5:30pm) before the head into Thanksgiving Break training.
