Heading into the western North Carolina Athletic Conference basketball tournament last Friday, The Lady Panthers were working off of a six game winning streak, while the boys were building momentum after winning four games in a row.
In the opening round of the western North Carolina Athletic Conference Basketball Tournament, which was held at the Panther Den, both the men and women varsity basketball teams rose victorious over their opponents, the East Henderson Eagles.
Both teams were headed to the semifinals, which was scheduled to be played at Pisgah High School. Due to winter weather, the conference tournament was cancelled. Playoffs for Franklin High School are currently scheduled to begin next Tuesday.
