Baseball: The Franklin High School Varsity Baseball Team added to its record another loss as they hosted the Tuscola Mountaineers Tuesday at the Macon Middle School field. The game was a scoreless affair until the third inning when the Mountaineers put up three runs, to make it a 3-0 game after the Panthers couldn't match the score. Tuscola added two more runs in the fifth, eventually leading to the shut out and another Panther loss, 5-0. This puts the Panther's record at 3-8 for the season.

The Panthers travelled to Hayesville yesterday to take on the undefeated Yellow Jackets.

Softball: The FHS Varsity Softball Team continued to show its dominance Tuesday when they hosted Tuscola.
