Face of sportsmanship

The Franklin Community tennis team recently held a fundraiser to help a Southwestern tennis player in need. Dr. Sweet, who is the father of SW senior Abby Sweet, has been fighting for his life for a few weeks now. The girls were worried about the financial burden the hospital bills were causing for the Sweet family. They organized a fundraiser this past weekend with parents pitching in and grilling burgers and hot dogs. The Franklin Athletic Department pitched in food and a grill. The team's opponents over the weekend, Mt Vernon and Oldenburg Academy, were generous to the cause. On Monday, the girls went to Sweet’s senior night match and gave the Sweet family over $1,000.
