The Franklin boys wrestling team was very impressive at the Bowie Tournament on Friday and Saturday. The Cougars won the tournament with five first-place finishes. It was a strong effort by a team that finished 2nd at last week's state team duals in Allen.
Franklin has quality wrestlers across the board led by Cody Moss at 120 and James Pleasant, who finished 2nd at 145. The Cougars won a regional title last year and figure to have a pretty good shot at winning it again this year. Jesse Almodovar has done a heck of a job as coach of the Cougars and turning the Cougars into one of the state's most consistent programs and the city's top program.
