During his junior year in 2013, Rawlins compiled a record of 8-2 with a 1.40 earned run average and 76 strikeouts in 64.2 innings pitched.

Williams has been a model of success for the Frenship golf team with 17 top-five finishes in her Frenship career.

French, a three-year letter winner in the Frenship volleyball program, led the Tigers to the District 4-4A Championship and Class 4A Region I Quarterfinal in 2013. She was recently named the District 4-4A Outstanding Defensive Player in 2013. She was also recognized as the 2013 Most Valuable Player at Canyon Randall Tournament and All Tournament at the Frenship Tournament. She was also a 1st team All-District in 2012.
