Franklin coach Bob Hasseman doesn’t pay much attention to rankings.
But when the new state poll was released Thursday, the veteran wrestling coach was pleasantly surprised to see the Grizzly Cubs at the top. Perhaps he shouldn’t have been, but he was.
“I thought we might be fifth. It’s nice to get respect. It’s kind of hard to get,” said Hasseman, whose team clearly earned that respect at last week’s Team State Duals at Westfield.
