in

By John Bernhardt
Jordan Beers makes Franklin girls’ basketball coach Mike Dutcher’s job on the sidelines look easy. The senior all-purpose high school hoops star is a one-person basketball demolition squad. In the most anticipated high school basketball game of the season, Beers had her complete battery of talents on display before a capacity crowd at SUNY Oneonta’s Dewar Arena, as undefeated Franklin leveled previously undefeated South Kortright, 39-30, in last Wednesday’s Section IV, Class D, semifinal.
