A weekly preview... (& a Happy Thanksgiving to FCHSSnD)

Greetings Franklin Family,

After a tough, hard-fought meet, I felt it was important to drop a few lines on our team and the upcoming week as we prepare to enter the holiday season.

Yesterday, I was immensely proud of the way that our ladies prepared, warmed-up, and cheered for their teammates during a challenging 87-99 loss to county rival Center Grove. We were loud and very focused for a first meet of the season. There’s a great deal of work to do in developing throughout the season, but yesterday left me feeling confident that our ladies are up to the challenge. As parents, you too, can make the difference with words of encouragement and challenging your athlete to improve, especially during the holidays!

Center Grove is deep, well-coached, and brought some of their best stuff, out-pacing us as the meet wore on. Their depth, especially this early in the season, is very good and will be throughout the rest of this 2022-23 campaign. We coaches, will be challenging our depth in the coming month as it’s imperative that they grow… quickly! The goal is still the same, we aim to be the best, and we won’t be deterred by a loss.

There are some changes this week to the practice times, such as Tuesday’s PM only practice (due to E-Learning Day), as well as a slight change on Black Friday. Saturday will include an alumni meet, where the link is below for those alumni looking to sign-up. If you know one of these folks, please forward it on!
