Franklin carrying momentum into county semifinals

Extending what currently is the program’s longest winning streak in seven years carries a high degree of difficulty for the Franklin Community High School boys basketball team.

First-year Grizzly Cubs head coach Jerry Bomholt wouldn’t have it any other way.

Bomholt respects the way Franklin responded after starting the season 0-2, so naturally he’s more than just a little interested to see how the Grizzly Cubs fare having won seven consecutive games by an average margin of 21.8 points.

Attempting to take a pin to this balloon in tonight’s first semifinal at the Johnson County Tournament are the Edinburgh Lancers (7-1), winners of six straight themselves. A victory here places the second-seeded Cubs opposite either Whiteland (5-5) or top-seed Center Grove (5-5) in Saturday night’s championship contest.
