Franklin girls’ basketball is off to a sterling start
Relaxed and versatile, Panthers get off to a sterling start
Watching the Franklin High girls’ basketball team warm up is a reminder that the upcoming game will be just that: a game. On Tuesday night, Kaitlin Copponi chatted playfully during a passing drill. Lauren Irvine danced to hip-hop songs. No game faces here. And before tip-off, they chant their mantra three times over: “Hakuna mattata!’’ Then the Panthers rolled to their 15th straight victory, clinching the Hockomock Davenport title with a 46-29 win at Attleboro.
