FHS Basketball: Lady Warriors Defeat Trenton Catholic, 66-35

Iyanna Cotton powered the Franklin High School Lady Warriors to a 6-35 victory on December 22, helping secure Franklin’s second consecutive win.

Cotton, a Junior, scored eight of her point from the free -throw line, where she went 7-for-8.

Sophomore Precoius Wheeler wasn’t far behind, tallying 15 points in the game.
