Dawgs give up first loss

Clinton County’s perfect season suffered its first blemish last Friday night when the Dawgs fell to the Wildcats of Lynn Camp over at Corbin.

The 35-14 loss puts Clinton County’s record on this 2018 season at a still very nice 5-1 mark and came at the hands of a very nice Lynn Camp squad that now boasts a 6-0 overall record in the 1A classification.

Friday’s game really didn’t cause either the Dawgs nor the Wildcats to move one way or the other in the state rankings, according to the Dave Cantrell (Lexington Herald Leader) system.

Lynn Camp’s ranking points moved from 40.2 last week to 42.3 this week, while the Bulldogs dropped only slightly with the loss to the Wildcats, 37.1 to 34.8.

Although Lynn Camp isn’t the top rated 1A team in Kentucky, it’s 6-0 record is the best of all the 1A teams, followed by the 6-1 record of Campbellsville, Nicholas County and Raceland.

Now we get ready to head north this Friday night for the second of a three straight week travel stretch to take on the Pirates of Berea in a game with a (currently) scheduled 6:30 central time kickoff.

The Pirates are going into Friday night’s game still looking for its first win of the season with a current mark of 0-6 and coming off of a 50-0 loss that was dealt by Nicholas County.

Go Dawgs!

Volley Dawgs will be top district seed

Although the pairings and match times weren’t available at press time, the Clinton County Volley Dawgs will head into the district tournament with the top seeded position when play does get underway at Metcalfe County.

The Volley Dawgs were headed into Tuesday afternoon’s final regular season game with a very impressive 19-5 overall mark, the third best in this 4th Region, behind only Greenwood and Warren East.

Clinton County is undefeated against district opponents as well as against the 4th Rßegion opponents they have faced.

Good luck Volley Dawgs as we head toward post-season action.
