The Franklin County Lady Lions play the top two teams in 8AAA and the No. 3 team in Class AAAAAAA in consecutive days this week.

The Lady Lions went 3-0 with games on the road at Stephens County and Monroe Area and a home matchup with Gainesville.

The rivalry game with Stephens was not easy, nor was the Region 8AAA contest at Monroe.
