It's Almost Time! Boys STATE!
Don’t forget to come and cheer loud and proud for our boys as they swim and dive in the Boys State meet on Friday and Saturday. We hope to see the stands packed with both Franklin fans as well as our girls team of swimmers and divers. Please reach out if your son/daughter needs a way up to the Nat. We will work on finding him/her a ride so that everyone can be there to support our Franklin athletes.
Please remember that doors will open for spectators to get into the stands at 4:30 on Friday. Franklin normally sits on the bleacher side that is closest to the parking garage stairs. (Same place we sat for the girls meet.) We try to situate ourselves in the bleachers (not the chairs) just above the lifeguard chair of the competition pool. Our boys on deck normally stand around the lifeguard chair. Parents/fans who arrive early can help with saving spots for our girl athletes who will be arriving after school on Friday. Thank you for your help with this!
