Braulio ortega, Reporter

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

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

The girls continued their pre-season domination after winning the title at the Margret Hussman Tournament of Champions and defeated school from the Las Cruces area to the Austin Area.

District play began on Sept. 10 and the girls haven’t missed a step.

With wins against Montwood, Eastwood and Eastlake the girls are on fire.

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.

The Cougars are preparing for match-ups against Socorro on Tues. Sept. 21 and against rivals Coronado on Friday, Sept. 24.
