FHS varsity basketball teams expected to have fulfilling seasons
This sports season at Franklin High School has already been a memorable one, as the varsity volleyball and football teams shattered the record books during their respective fall campaigns. The trend continues this winter. Lindsay Simpson, who holds the record for most points scored at FHS, surpassed the 2,000 career points mark last Tuesday night against Pisgah.
The senior scored the first five of her team’s seven points in just four minutes to reach the milestone.The returning WNCAC player of the year and future WCU Catamount became only the 10th girls basketball player from WNC to break the 2,000 career points threshhold. She has scored 23 points in all three games this season.
