Under the guidance head coach Flo Valdez, the Franklin High volleyball program has achieved tremendous success over the years, winning 30 games or more on eight occasions. Lat year, the team didn't win district for the first time in 11 years, but still finished with 32 wins and won 14 district matches. Valdez is entering her 15th year at the school and 44th overall.
El Paso has proven to be a very good volleyball area in the high school ranks over the years and Franklin has led the charge.
The program is in place and it's been interesting to see the team reload year after year and this year's group faces several tough tests on the road before district starts. It should be interesting to see if the team can fill the void of departed seniors Ashley Newcomb and Rocio Gutierrez, but if it's like years past, someone should be able to step up and make plays.
