Cougars Fall to Arlington in Regional Quarterfinals
The Franklin Cougars Volleyball were ranked 8th in the 5A classification, and had gone further than any other Franklin team since 2003, but Arlington proved too much of a challenge tonight in LaMesa, Texas, defeating Franklin 23-25, 25-23, 27-25 and 25-20 in the 5A Regional Quarterfinals.
Head Coach Flo Valdez told NewsChannel 9, " the kids made us proud, Arlington was just too big, we had a hard time getting over their blocks. The kids battled all night, I couldn't tell you how many lead changes there were, there were so many. It was a heck of a match, we were unfortunately on the losing end."
Franklin ends the season 42-5 overall.
