The Triple Crown may be a great achievement in horse racing.

For Franklin Community High School’s baseball team, that trifecta is just a matter of warming up.

The Grizzly Cubs, already Mid-State Conference and Johnson County Tournament champions, out-dueled tough Franklin Central, 3-1, to add a third title this season by winning the Class 4A Whiteland Sectional on Monday night.

“That Triple Crown feels really amazing,” winning pitcher Jeremy McKinney said of the team’s three trophies, capped by the school’s first Sectional crown in 18 years. “Since 1995, wow. It’s been a while.”
