County teams face off for Franklin bragging rights

The 2022 Franklin County Tournament is being held at Vina High School this week, having begun Jan. 11 and continuing through Jan. 15.

There are a few changes to this year’s tournament. There are five different divisions: A-Junior boys, JV girls, B-Varsity boys, varsity girls and varsity boys. The A-Junior girls, B-Junior girls and B-Junior boys division games were held in December.

Another change will be admission to the tournament. This year, tickets must be purchased online on the GoFan app or at Tickets may be purchased by the day and are good for all games on that day.
