Franklin's 'fire' burns Center Grove for county title

During his 32 years as a boys varsity basketball head coach, Franklin’s Jerry Bomholt has seen many different types of teams.

None has been     quite like the Grizzly Cubs.

And for Bomholt, in his first season at Franklin, that’s a good thing.

On Saturday, the Cubs defeated Center Grove 46-42 to claim the Johnson County Tournament title, using a swarming defense that’s become the team’s trademark.

And while Bomholt knows the Cubs still have more work to do, he said what’s been most enjoyable is how they play defense and how well they play together.

“I don’t think I’ve ever had a team — as good of teams as I’ve had — I’ve never had a team that plays as unselfishly as this group does,” Bomholt said.
