Dawgs bring it home Friday

After a blowout win just across the state line in Pickett County, Tennessee, the Bulldogs will put their game on the line this Friday night in front of a home crowd on Bulldog Field.

The Bulldogs sprinted to a 50-18 victory over the Bobcats Friday night to go 3-0 on the season, and despite the game being a travel event for Clinton County fans, NEWS photographer Brett Gibson noted we had a very nice crowd on hand for the rival matchup.

Now, Coach Jamie Miller and company will be playing the part of host this Friday night as we take Bulldog Field as the home team, welcoming the Caverna Colonels to town.

Of course local fans are hoping to get in another win to take the record to 4-0 as we inch closer to the mid-season mark.

On the other hand, the Colonels, once a football powerhouse in this region of the state, will be looking to pick up it’s first win on the 2018 season, as they bring a 0-4 record to the matchup Friday night.

Local fans should be in store for a great night of Friday night lights – weather-wise, with a predicted 7:00 p.m. kickoff temperature of about 70 degrees with clear skies, dropping to about 65 degrees before the night ends.

Earlier possible rains during the day, combined with the cooler temperatures, could mean we finish the game looking through some fog.

Toboggans and hoodies, fans.

Honoring our heroes

Tricia “Mrs. Coach” Miller sends word that Friday night will be the Clinton County Bulldog Salute to Our Veterans night during the Caverna game halftime period.

“We would like to thank them for their sacrifice and commitment to something greater than themselves,” Miller told the NEWS in an email Monday morning.

All veterans, men and women, who have served their country are invited to attend Friday night’s Clinton County – Caverna game, and be a part of the ceremony at halftime that will see them be recognized before the home crowd.

Volley Dawgs are on a roll

The Volley Dawgs are certainly for real this season, sporting an 11-1 record as they go into the rest of this week’s schedule.

In addition to the very nice overall record, the Volley Dawgs are undefeated in region play.

Clinton County will take its All “A” Regional championship title to Richmond this week for the All “A” State Tournament, which gets underway Friday.

The Volley Dawgs will face Walden in opening round action of the Pool Play style tournament Friday at 5:30 p.m. central time on the EKU Main Court, followed by a matchup against Oneida Baptist later Friday evening, 7:00 p.m. on Court 3 in the Rec/Fitness Center.

On Saturday, the Volley Dawgs go up against West Carter at 8:00 a.m., again on the EKU Main Court.

Good luck to coach Kayla Kriek and company this weekend in Richmond.
