The Franklin County Varsity Softball team picked up a road win on Friday evening as the Wildcats defeated the Knightstown Panthers by a score of 9 – 5.
The Wildcats put up runs early and often as the Wildcats offense put the ball in play hard consistently throughout the whole contest. Franklin County finished the game with fifteen hits, and scored in all but two innings.
FC also had pretty good defense in the contest, as well as great pitching in the circle from Bree Bischoff. Bischoff kept the Panther hitters off-balance throughout the game and ended the game with ten strike outs!

Franklin County’s JV Softball team continued its winning ways on Friday evening as they picked up a 10 – 0 victory over the Knightstown Panthers.
