The Battle Ground Academy Wildcats shone the brightest in 2012 capturing the Division II-AA state championship, while Franklin fell just short of the DI Class 3A title.
Franklin and BGA lose a lot of experience from last year’s teams, and both look to have stiff competition in their respective districts in 2013.
The 2012 softball season left most of the Franklin-area squads looking up at District 11-AAA champion Ravenwood, but 2013 could be different.

Page’s state championship girls doubles team returns and both Patriots tennis squads hope to get back to state, while Centennial, Franklin and Independence continue to try to gain ground on Brentwood and Ravenwood. BGA’s teams are making some noise in DII.
