Jazmine Franklin

End the year with a bang, start the next one even bigger.

One of Coupeville’s best and brightest, the uber-talented Jazmine Franklin, continues to kill it in the art world and you could be helping to support her fast-rising career.

When she’s not crafting eye-popping paintings, the Coupeville Sports Hall o’ Famer can be found putting her designs to work on a wide variety of clothes, as well as mugs, masks, keychains, and more.

Franklin recently debuted three new designs with her “Heart and Head Collection,” devoted to highlighting positive mental health.

During her days at CHS, Jazmine showcased a variety of talents, from being a student leader to teaming up with McKenzie Bailey to form an award-winning tennis doubles duo.

A truly lovely human being, she is proof positive that you can come from a small town, and yet be a big success through hard work, talent, and being a genuinely kind, caring person.

As 2020 transforms into 2021, maybe take a few moments to bask in her awesomeness and give something back.

Jazmine Franklin

It’s a win for everyone.

With the holiday season bearing down fast, now is the perfect time to pick up gifts for people in your life.

Thanks to the hard work and talents of a former Wolf supernova, you can obtain unique mementos, while supporting the work of one of Coupeville’s best and brightest.

During her time at CHS, Jazmine Franklin was a student leader, formed a potent doubles duo on the tennis court with McKenzie Bailey, and was one of the loudest ‘n proudest cheerleaders ever to wear the red and black.

Franklin was later inducted into the Coupeville Sports Hall o’ Fame, a true legend among legends.

In her post-high school days, the former Wolf has expanded her art empire as she continues to produce high-quality work.

So, take my advice, and pop over to her site to see for yourself.

The gift you buy today could be a double gift – if you buy it from the right source.

They were awesome together. They were awesome apart.

And now, three-plus years after graduation from Coupeville High School, Jazmine Franklin and McKenzie Bailey continue to grow in their awesomeness.

The former is an accomplished artist who’s a step away from breaking big, while the latter is on her way to being the coolest teacher a new generation of little kids could hope to meet in the classroom.

While both continue to soar on a daily basis as they chase their dreams, today we’re here to primarily talk about what they accomplished as Wolf athletes.

It is a sports blog, after all, and we’re way overdue on inducting the dazzling duo into the Coupeville Sports Hall o’ Fame.

So, let’s rectify that oversight and crack open the door on our digital hall of wonders, sending them into hallowed company as a team.

After this, when you wander up to the top of the blog and peek under the Legends tab, you’ll find Franklin and Bailey exactly where they’ve always deserved to be.

Both did it all, and did it extremely well, during their time in the red and black.

Franklin was an accomplished cheerleader and a class leader, while Bailey bopped her way through volleyball and basketball, while also being at the forefront of everything the Class of 2016 student leaders accomplished.

But, it was when they came together, picking up tennis rackets and laying waste to anyone foolhardy enough to wander into their path, where they sparkled like never before.

“Killer Kenny” attacks.

“Girl’s crazy … but I kind of dig it.”

CHS tennis coach Ken Stange referred to the fun-loving, hard-hitting duo as Salt ‘n Pepa, and they were his go-to whenever he needed a crucial win.

It might have been easy for their play to be overlooked, as their hard-court careers virtually mirrored those of Payton Aparicio and Sage Renninger, who were a #1 doubles team for four straight seasons, culminating in a long run at the state tourney their senior season.

Playing in the #2 slot never dinged their shine, however, as they methodically raked their way through other teams, while helping their teammates raise their own games.

When he looked back at the first 15 years of his career as leader of the Wolf tennis programs, Stange tabbed Franklin and Bailey as one of the best doubles duos he had coached.

He appreciated their ability to blister foes from big and small schools alike, and how they went about accomplishing the feat.

Over the course of their prep careers, the duo went an eye-popping 28-4 when teamed up together.

That’s a brain-melting .875 winning percentage, a number few, if any, Wolf athletes have come remotely close to hitting.

Always game for a photo op…

But deadly efficient on the court. (Ken Stange photo)

Franklin and Bailey were leaders on and off the court, a combined second voice for their coach, and they capped their prep careers by being “excellent team captains.”

Stange has seen (and coached) hundreds of young women and men during his decade-and-a-half-plus at CHS, but Salt ‘n Pepa remain among his favorites, for their skill, their fight, and their attitudes.

“They were about winning and fun, in that order,” he said. “They lived out loud and I loved it!”

The torch has been passed, once again.

Every year (or at least it seems that way to me), as Coupeville High School seniors prepare for graduation, they put together a video dedicated to literally passing the torch to the next class.

This year’s production was headed up by the legend herself, Jazmine Franklin, and is now available to watch everywhere.

But you should watch it here on Coupeville Sports, cause you’re already here, and that just makes life easier.
