In 2016, Franklin will be competing at the Clarksville Regional, the Atlanta Super Regional, and the Grand National Championships.

This year at Clarksville, Franklin fell behind both Castle and O'Fallon Township after winning the prelims competition.

At the Indianapolis Super Regional, they continued to fall behind Castle, placing 11th overall. It seemed like this season was going to be a disappointing one for Franklin.

But then at Grand Nats, Franklin made an incredible leap by placing 13th in both prelims and semifinals. They were by far the happiest 13th place group we have ever witnessed.

Franklin attended the Louisville Regional, the Indianapolis Super Regional, and the Grand National Championships. They had an excellent showing at the Louisville Regional, placing only a twentieth of a point behind first place Castle. That success carried onto Indianapolis, where they placed fifth beating Lawrence Township, among many other national caliber groups. Then, three weeks later at Grand Nats, Franklin ended up way out of finals behind many group they beat multiple times throughout the season. It was a surprise to see them so low and maybe 2015 will be the year they break into finals.

Franklin's meteoric rise to national prominence continued in 2013, winning its second southeast regional championship (Jacksonville '12 and Powder Springs '13), its fourth state championship, and its Grand Nationals 2nd place finish in Class AAA. In 2012, the Franklin Band was 24th in Grand Nats semifinals, but, in 2013, the Franklin Band was 15th. That's some crazy improvement from their 44th place finish at Grand Nats 2011. It is likely that Franklin will return to Indy in 2014, and, if they do, is it safe to say they could break into finals. Depending on the opposition, they might even be able to steal the Class AAA championship title from Cobb county.
