News and Announcements

Don’t forget to come and cheer loud and proud for our boys as they swim and dive in the Boys State meet tonight and Saturday. We hope to see the stands packed with both Franklin fans as well as our girl 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 near the start end 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!

It gives the athletes a chance to relax, eat, and spend time together as a team. This dinner is for all boy swimmers, divers, and coaches only. Please don’t let not having a ride keep your athlete from attending this dinner. If you need a ride from the school, please reach out and we can get them there.
