"the whole school rallies around the teams"

Aside from Franklin's wrestling team, which included New England champion Dan Telhada and is coached by Carmine Colace, the Panthers got standout seasons from both their boys and girls hockey and boys and girls basketball squads. The track and swimming squads put their best feet forward as well.
Coach Dean O'Connor's boys hoops squad reached the Division 1 South quarterfinals, finishing 18-6 after winning a tournament game. John Leighton's girls basketball team was 16-7, and like the boys went 1-1 in the tourney.
On the ice, Chris Spillane led the boys hockey team to a 16-3-3 mark and the Division 1 South semifinals. Margie Burke's girls hockey team was 13-8 after a preliminary-round loss to Medway-Ashland in the Division 1 tournament.
What is the common thread between the teams, aside from winning records and "FRANKLIN" on the chest? The fact that the coaches come back each year and have built the programs and, as far as one can tell, will continue to.
