Lady Panthers look to extend 12-game winning streak

The Lady Panthers continue to keep their game winning streak alive with two dominant wins over the past week. The first came against West Henderson in game that looked like it may be close in the first half, but as they have time and time again this season, Franklin ended up on top at the end of the fourth quarter with a score of 62-30.

Their game against Tuscola didn't look much different with the Lady Panthers taking home the win with a final score of 57-26, which is shockingly, only their fourth most dominant win of the season. The win brings the Lady Panthers' winning streak to 12 games. They will be playing the Hayesville Yellow Jackets tonight. This will be the first undefeated team that the Panthers have played so far this season.


Mike Houston leaves LR to coach football in S.C.

Franklin native Mike Houston has been named the new head coach of the Citadel Bulldogs football team. The Citadel, The Military College of South Carolina is located in Charleston, S.C.

The Bulldogs ended the 2013 season with a 5-7 overall record and a 4-4 record in the Southern Conference; a season that saw Head Coach Kevin Higgins resign upon its conclusion, opening the door for Houston to move into the role.

“The Citadel is a prestigious institution. It's got a strong program with great integrity and honor and I look forward to being able to continue that tradition,” he said. “I'm in the process of getting down there and jumping in. We've got winter workouts and during that we'll be recruiting staff and coaches so we can hit the ground running in the spring.”


DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -The way Tony Stewart sees it, there's no chance he won't be ready, willing and able to compete in NASCAR Sprint Cup Series racing throughout February's Speedweeks at Daytona.

Injured in a Sprint Car accident Aug. 5 in Iowa and sidelined for the balance of the 2013 season, Stewart has undergone three surgeries on his broken right leg -- followed by a physical therapy regimen that has taken him from bedridden … to a wheelchair … to crutches … to the ability to stand and walk on his own.


DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – The Rolex 24 at Daytona, a long-running good thing, is destined to become even better.

That fact was underscored Friday both on and off the track during the first day of the annual "Roar Before the Rolex 24" test sessions at Daytona International Speedway.

This year marks the 52nd running of the Rolex 24, which for years opened the IMSA season. That ended with a split of the North American sports car pie between the ALMS and GRAND-AM that lasted 14 years, with IMSA sanctioning aligning with the ALMS. With the merger, IMSA and Daytona are together again.
