On Jan. 12, the Oil City Oilers’ swimmers beat the Franklin Knights.
For the past 8 years, both girls and boys have beaten Franklin. Once former Franklin coach Eric Smith became head coach of Oil City to coach his own daughter in 2016, Oil City has yet to lose to Franklin.
The Oiler girls won 96-72 and the boys won 97-71.
Oil City owns the bragging rights for now as the team hopes to win the next time they face Franklin on Feb. 9.
