Fourth-ranked Franklin entered the tournament seeded fourth but proceeded to beat, in order, No. 5 Warren Central, 41-21; No. 1 seed and top-ranked previously unbeaten Perry Meridian, 27-26; and previously unbeaten No. 2 seed and second-ranked Evansville Mater Dei, 30-27, in a championship match thriller.
