HALLE ATKINSON, SOPHOMORE – FRANKLIN
No one is going to feel bad for the Panthers, who graduated a host of starters from last year’s team, including HockomockSports.com Player of the Year Victoria Stowell. No one will feel bad because Franklin rarely has to rebuild; it just reloads. One of the reasons for confidence this fall is Atkinson, who showed flashes of her potential as a freshman. A quick winger, Atkinson became more accustomed to the physical rigors of the Hockomock as the season progressed and by the tournament was a regular off the Franklin bench. This season could be a breakout year. Atkinson has the skills to beat defenders and to serve a cross into a dangerous area. She also has the pace to create opportunities for herself and a good finishing touch for a young player. For the first time in a while, Franklin is not the favorite to win the league, but with Atkinson and others back the Panthers should not slip too much.
