Bulldogs fall hard to Lynn Camp, at home again Friday

The first of a two-game home stand ended Friday night with a disappointing loss for our Bulldogs on the gridiron, losing a 50-28 decision at the hands of the Wildcats of Lynn Camp.

The loss pushes Clinton County’s record to the 3-4 mark as Coach Jamie Miller prepares his team this week for the second straight home game with the Bulldogs playing host to another Bulldog squad, this one from across the state line in Red Boiling Springs, Tennessee this Friday night.

Red Boiling Springs will bring an overall 1-6 record to Albany for the contest that is slated to begin at 7:00 p.m. on Bulldog field.

Clinton County’s football season is beginning to wind down, as the Dawgs will take a break the following week, a tradition during the Foothills Festival (October 18), then will split the final two games on the 2013 schedule with a trip to Clay County, Tennessee on October 25, and a final home game on November 1 against Jackson County.

Fall sports winding down for most

Both soccer teams are seeing regular season coming to a close this week, with the boys traveling to South Laurel this Thursday for the final game, while the girls are finishing the year on the home field Thursday, playing host to York Institute.

The boys’ and girls’ soccer programs will be hosting the district tournament December 14-15.

The Volley Dawgs are two games away from tournament time as they travel for the final two contests, to Glasgow this Thursday and finally Warren Central next Tuesday. District tourney play for the girls is at Cumberland County on Monday, October 21.

Cross Country continues with meets through the state championship in early November, and that sport also is subject to seeing schedule changes being made.

The Runnin’ Dawgs will be headed to a meet this Saturday, October 15, at Cave Run Park in Wayne County.

Of course the Runnin’ Dawgs’ biggest appearance for local fans will be during the upcoming Foothills Festival 5K Run on Saturday morning, October 19. Traditionally, local Runnin’ Dawg boosters will be lining the route to cheer on not only all of the runners in the Foothills race, but those CCMS and CCHS Cross Country runners who participate in large numbers.

You can’t miss ‘em, they’re the young runners wearing the blue and white.

Golfer with Clinton ties makes state cut

One high school golfer with strong Clinton County ties is competing this week in Bowling Green in the KHSAA Individual state golf tournament.

Zach Miller, the son of Mike and Sherry (Cravens) Miller, was set to tee off at 1:18 p.m. Tuesday in the state tournament after he finished in second place last week in the 9th Region Tournament, firing a 70 on Lexington’s Kearney Hills Golf Links.

Zach, plays for Madison Central in Richmond, and is the team’s number one player this season. He’s picked up several wins on the junior golf tours for the past few years, but this is Miller’s first time at making the KHSAA state tournament cut.

Of course, like any athlete, Miller went into Tuesday’s tournament with intentions of winning it all, but he also has to realize that should that not happen, he’s still got a few more chances in front of him.

Zach is only in the 8th grade.

Golf isn’t his only sporting passion – his family is a summer-time fixture in the area as they are avid boaters on Dale Hollow Lake, spending several weekends every summer back in Clinton County enjoying boating and wakeboarding. His mother, the former Sherry Cravens, is a graduate of Clinton County High School.
