Franklin's final high school meet drawing a crowd

DENVER (AP) - Hoping to see Missy Franklin swim at her final high school state meet?

Sorry, it's a sold-out show.

Franklin, a four-time Olympic gold medalist, will compete for Regis Jesuit High School in the 200-yard individual medley and 500 free - along with two more relay events - at the Class 5A state championships this weekend in Fort Collins, Colo.

There really weren't that many tickets available for purchase.

The Colorado High School Activities Association allocated 922 of the roughly 990 tickets to schools so that all parents of qualified swimmers had a chance to see their kids swim. The few remaining tickets went fast, especially with fans of Franklin hoping to see the 17-year-old compete one final time in her prep career before heading off to the University of California, Berkeley.
