Franklin High Wrestling Team Lends a Helping Hand
The Franklin High Wrestling team did some community service hours at Walnut Grove Elementary School July 29 by helping Assistant Principal Kathy Hall move new textbooks into her teacher’s classrooms before the elementary students return to school.
“The wrestlers got a good work-out by moving the books around the school,” said FHS Head Wrestling Coach Frank Barbrie. “When the boys do this type of community service it helps strengthen team bonds while building team unity. The kids had fun and enjoyed helping Assistant Principal Hall. ”
Alex and Andy Bennett signed to wrestle with Gardner-Webb University in Boiling Springs, NC. They will join their brother,
Zach Bennett who currently wrestles at GWU. Gardner-Webb is a Division 1 team that is part of the Southern Conference.
