Franklin County’s girls varsity basketball team opens its season tonight with a non-district match-up against George Washington-Danville of the Piedmont District.
Tip off at Samuel M. Hawkins-Central Gymnasium is 6 p.m.
The standalone varsity contest was confirmed and added to FCHS’s schedule Thursday.
FCHS and Danville are past rivals in the Western Valley and Piedmont districts and were non-district foes prior to their entrances into those leagues.
The two teams are playing for the first time since the 2018-19 season, FCHS’s final one in the Piedmont District.
Also on Thursday, FCHS added a Saturday, Jan. 23 home doubleheader against Radford. Tip times are 2 p.m. and 3:30 p.m.
