Washington County duo leads Franklin in season-opening win
Former Salem High School standout Gunner Erwin scored 15 points, grabbed nine boards and blocked four shots and Eastern alum Clay Starrett added 14 points as the Franklin College team opened the season with a 79-70 win over Fontbonne.
The Eastern High School girls’ basketball team started the season strong on Tuesday, Nov. 8 with a 63-51 win over visiting Mitchell. The Lady Musketeers used strong performances by junior Krista Roberts and senior Jocelyn Mousty.
One senior, no juniors and a host of the underclassmen is the hand second-year West Washington Head Coach Wade Tomlinson has been dealt. That’s the bad news. The good news is, those underclassmen are very talented and will look to build on the program’s win total from a year ago.
