The Franklin County Lady Seahawks varsity basketball team has opened strong, going 4-1 to start the 2023-24 season.

After an opening 48-26 road loss Nov. 21 to Arnold, Jordan McNair’s squad has reeled off four straight wins on the road.

On Nov. 27, it was a 44-28 victory at Wakulla over the Lady War Eagles, and then three days later, a 38-29 win at Taylor County.

On Saturday night, the Lady Seahawks downed North Bay Haven 38-24 and then on Monday night, it was a 40-26 win at Bay against the Lady Tornadoes.
