It was a great year to be a Bulldog

Congratulations go out all around this week to a great group of Clinton County Bulldog football figures.

Finishing with a nice 50-22 win over Jackson County last week in a game that was played Thursday night, the Bulldogs wrapped up the best season ever in school gridiron history, returning home with a 9-1 record in tow.

The Bulldogs only hiccup this season came on a mid-season (September 18) loss at Lynn Camp, a team that also finished its season with an outstanding record of 9-1.

Congrats all around to Coach Jamie Miller and company on a fantastic year and we’re already looking forward to the 2019 football campaign.

To the players – this season will be something you will remember, and be answering questions about – for the rest of your lives – cherish the experience of being on a squad that was up to this point, the best ever in Bulldog history.

Swell up a little and pat yourself on the back – you deserve it.

Again – congrats all around and it’s been a fantastic season to cover.

A short break, then thoughts turn to roundball

Just a few weeks separate the end of our football season and the start of the next big sport, roundball.

The Bulldogs will hit the hardwood on Monday, November 26 when we play host to Casey County while the Lady Dawgs will open the 2018-19 season on the road the following night Tuesday, November 27 at Garrard County.

That’s all still a few weeks away, but it won’t be that long before fans can get a little relief from our roundball withdrawals we’ve been suffering since March.

As you should have seen by now from the front page article this issue, we’re just a week away now from the annual basketball kickoff in Clinton County – Meet the Bulldogs.

Slated this year for next Thursday, November 8, this year’s pre-season kickoff gets underway with the Booster Club meal at 5:30 (BBQ this year) for just $6 in the cafeteria. Then things move inside for the player, cheerleader and coach introductions, intra-squad scrimmages and finally the Wall of Fame inductions.

As you can see from the aforementioned article, this year’s inductees are all top notch and much deserving of the honor and include not only a player from the Bulldogs and Lady Bulldogs, but a special inductee from the support staff as well.

Congrats to Tony Bowlin, (Class of 1987), Johnnie Hay Hicks (Class of 1993) and Mike Reeves (Class of 1973).

Come on out and enjoy a night of basketball and get to know this years young men and women who will be wearing the Blue and White.
