Comp. Cheer

Last weekend was a very exciting weekend for Franklin Competition cheerleading. Our High School and Junior High programs both won the East Side of the SWBL and were named Grand Champions of the entire league! 

This is the 14th SWBL title for the high school! We want to give a special shoutout to our four senior competition cheerleaders for their hard work and dedication; Isabella Knipper, Emma Madden, Hailey Tirey, and Maren Gilley. These girls and their talent will be missed!! 

This weekend our high school competition is ending their season by competing at the OASSA State Competition at Pickerington North High School! The girls perform at 11:50am. Come out and support your FHS comp squad!


Girls Bowling: The Girls bowled in the Sectional Tournament on Thursday at Crossgate Lanes where the girls ranked 14 with a cumulative score of 2,793. Payton Perez was the lead bowler bowling a 466 and CJ Jones was our second high bowler with a 456. All in all the girls bowled well and competed against some very tough teams.

Boys Bowling: The Boys Bowling Team competed in the OHSAA Sectionals, on Wednesday. Unfortunately, the Team did not have anyone advance. The season is now complete. The Bowling Cats would like to wish our seniors, Ashton Smiley and Ethan Rebholz good luck as they prepare for graduation.

Boys Basketball

The cats were victorious last Monday night vs. #5 seed Northmont by a score of 57-48. Noah Bauerle, Pierce Rich and Nate Paarlberg led us in scoring with 17, 16 and 13. Noah Rich had 11 rebounds and Nate Paarlberg had 4 assists. Isaiah Bales took 2 charges on the night. Kai Cook and Rocky Williams were great handling the basketball for us with great pressure put on them by the Bolts. Evan Fry and Ashton Everitt were great off the bench giving us a spark on the boards!

Tonight we take on Wayne who is #3 seed. The game is at Centerville and will take place at 7:15 pm after the #2 seed Fairmont and #4 seed Beavercreek game. Tickets are on sale online via OHSAA. It should be a great crowd tonight as the games are between the #2, #3, #4 and #6 seeds in Dayton Division 1.

Congratulations to Noah Rich on being selected to the District 15 Senior Team!

Girls Basketball

Good luck to all teams competing in the Winter tournament. Good luck to all the Spring teams that are getting started. We are currently planning our banquet and will get that date out soon.


Lacrosse is having a great week. We’ve received new helmets, new uniforms are on the way, and our culture is becoming the bedrock of our program. I love our attitudes, work ethic, and determination in grinding to get better each and every day! The future of our program is definitely bright!

We are excited about this upcoming season and if you are interested in playing, regardless of experience, please do not hesitate to join!
