The Franklin High School boys tennis team closed out the 2019 season after losing 5-0 to the Green Dragons of Maggie Walker Governors School of Richmond on Monday. The match for the Broncos was the first round of the regional two playoffs. Above, the Broncos stand in front of a mural of Arthur Ashe at the Battery Park tennis complex on the north side of Richmond. It was at these courts that Ashe started as a young boy in his overall tennis development in lessons and playing skills.
