The Bruins had a great season going 15-2. Thank you to all the fans for all the support through out the year.
The 8th graders entered the game 16-0, but fell behind after one, 8-4. Frankton continued to pull away taking a 23-7 lead to the half. The Lady Bruins went on a 9-0 run to start the third to cut the lead to 23-26, but the deficit ended up being too big to overcome. Frankton went on to win the game, 33-28.
