Asked to pick the match among the first 15 that best exemplifies his team’s potential, Franklin Community High School volleyball coach Chris Due paused. Not for effect, either.
Due eventually selected the Grizzly Cubs’ 25-22, 25-19 decision over Class 4A No. 8 Columbus East at the Providence Invitational on Sept. 7.
A powerful statement on what was an impressive day.
In all, Franklin downed three ranked opponents on the Providence hardwood in a matter of hours, the others being Class 3A No. 4 Brownstown Central and the host Pioneers, the top-ranked squad in Class 2A.
