The Clinton County Volley Dawgs will hang its fourth banner in as many years after winning the 4th Region All “A” Classic Championship on Saturday at Lindle Castle Gymnasium.

Clinton County’s first win came against Monroe County after receiving the first round bye in the tournament.

The Lady Volley Dawgs took on Monroe County to start its journey towards the championship with a two set win over the Lady Falcons, 25-11 and 25-10.
