Harrisburg hosts ‘international friendly’

Harrisburg hosts ‘international friendly’
The Harrisburg boys basketball team has played for state championships. There are even a couple of banners hanging in the school gym showing off a couple of state titles the Bulldogs won last decade.
Usually, the state playoffs are about as far as a small school will go. Because of travel expenses, teams rarely get to venture outside the state to play other teams across the country.
With that in mind, the Bulldogs haven’t had the opportunity to play basketball on a national level. But they took their program to an international level on Tuesday.

New Franklin girls basketball, Harrisburg softball programs welcome new coaches

Ryan Lyons will take the reins next season as the Lady Bulldogs’ head coach, taking over for Chris McGowan. Lyons previously served as New Franklin’s head coach during the 2009-10 season, when he guided the team to a 19-7 record before falling to Harrisburg — the eventual Class 2 state champion — in the district semifinals.

Bulldogs earn ‘best in show’ awards
The Rock Bridge girls basketball team achieved something rather unprecedented this past season. The Bruins had their entire starting five receive All-State honors.
A task like that is seemingly impossibly for a baseball team, but the New Franklin Bulldogs were bound to give it a try this season.
New Franklin had five players make the MHSBCA Class 1 All-State team, or exactly half of its starting lineup. It’s the most All-State baseball players the program has had in a single season since 2005.
