It’s volleyball season and the Varsity Cougars are sweeping the competition in non-district play.

The girls began their domination with wins against Midland and Permian. The girls then swept in tournament play against Heritage, Midlothian, Timber Creek, Centennial, Lamar Dumas High School’s. 

Most recently the girls took home the title at the Margret Hussman Tournament of Champions and defeated school from the Las Cruces area to the Austin Area.

The success has only continued and the girls are on a roll with their recent tournament wins the girls hold 24 wins and three losses with district play beginning September 10.

The Franklin girls do more than just win. They’re dominating the stats! When it comes to the numbers, they’re all above national average. Kills per set, hitting percentage, total blocks per games, and the number of aces served exceed the national average by a huge gap. 

 With the season just starting, our Cougars are dominating the game and not even breaking a sweat. These girls could break records and make history!
