HockomockSports.com has published the "Girls Lacrosse: Ten Players to Watch for 2023". The Franklin selections are shared here. The link to the complete listing is provided below.
KAITLYN CARNEY, SENIOR – FRANKLIN
After scoring goals that nearly won Franklin its first state title as a sophomore, Carney continued to develop her all-around game last year and was one of the most dynamic players in the Hock. The James Madison commit finished with 60 goals, 19 assists, 46 draw controls, and 30 caused turnovers, while earning Eastern Mass. all-star honors. Carney’s impact all over the field was evident by leading the Panthers in both goals and caused turnovers. Her tenacity is unmatched and Carney never shies away from a physical battle. That also carries into the attacking zone, where Carney combines that energy with creativity around the cage to be one of the league’s top finishers. Franklin continues to be one of the top programs in the state and Carney will be right in the middle of the quest to bring home a first state championship.
KATIE PETERSON, SENIOR – FRANKLIN
Each year, Franklin graduates a ton of talent and each year the Panthers return with lineups loaded with some of the league’s top players. Peterson is an impact player on both ends of the field, not only scoring big goals but also being one of the team’s top defensive midfielders. The UMass commit scored 43 goals and dished out 30 assists to help Franklin extend its league-winning streak to more than 90 games. Peterson was also a force on the draw, pulling down 64 draw controls, and her quickness, athleticism, and, length controlled play on the defensive end of the field. She was named an Eastern Mass. all-star. Franklin remains the favorite in the Kelley-Rex and one of the top teams in the state and Peterson will be right at the heart of it all this season as one of the top returning scorers in the Hockomock.
