Red Mountain’s Emily Franklin headed to Kentucky
The Red Mountain volleyball season ended on a sour note on Thursday night in a loss to Mountain View. The Lions (8-8) won’t have a playoff spot for next week’s state tournament, but they have at least one player who’ll keep on volleying.
Emily Franklin is headed to the University of Kentucky on scholarship. The four-year starter on varsity finished her career with more than 1,000 kills and 300 blocks, according to Lions coach Rebecca Olson (the Lions didn’t keep track of statistics during Franklin’s freshman year).
Up next: Erica Franklin, Emily’s cousin who also plays with the Lions as they grew up playing together.
