Lady Dawgs claim regional title, make ‘A’ return to state basketball tourney

Posted January 28, 2015 at 3:32 pm

The Clinton County Lady Bulldogs are headed back to the Touchstone Energy All “A” Classic this week after battling through the brackets in the 4th Region All “A” Tournament.

The Lady Dawgs defeated Todd County Central in the opening round, 71-50, Cumberland County in the semi-finals, 58-40, and Glasgow in the final, 54-43.

It’s been 10 years since Clinton County has won an All “A” Classic 4th Region Title and despite the 10 year absence from the state tournament, Clinton County fans and the coaching staff are no strangers to the tournament.

In 2005, the Lady Dawgs, coached by Ronnie Guffey, went to the finals, but lost to Louisville Christian Academy, 34-32.
