Volley Dawgs are headed to the state

It never gets old handing out words of congratulations to our Big Blue squads, and this week we extended some well deserved kudos to our Lady Volley Dawgs for their All “A” Classic 4th Region Championship last weekend over in Todd County.

Coaches Kayla Kriek and Ginger Davis and company successfully reached their “3-Peat” goal by successfully defending their 4th Region All “A” championship for the third consecutive year.

A front page article and photo this week in the NEWS reviews the team’s accomplishment in the regional tournament.

The Volley Dawgs will play in their third All “A” Classic state tournament at Eastern Kentucky University next month, September 13 and 14.

Again, congrats girls for adding more hardware to the CCHS trophy case.

Gridiron action this weekend, just across the river

It will be a dog fight on Friday night in Celina, Tennessee when Clinton County travels across the state line for the 2019 gridiron season opener, taking on the Bulldogs of Clay County High School.

First year coach Rocky Tallent and the gridiron Dawgs will be looking to pick up their first win of the season in Celina.

The Dawgs have their work cut out for them as they face a Clay County squad that is coming off a season opening 33-0 win over another opponent that Clinton County will be facing later this season, Monroe County.

Last of the big three is upon us – make it a safe one

Hard to think that the traditional end of summer is here with the arrival of this week’s Labor Day holiday.

Tourism traffic is always heaviest during our “big three” holiday weekends, beginning with Memorial Day and the July 4 holiday, but most often, this upcoming Labor Day event can be the busiest, especially on our lakes.

Schools have been in session for a few weeks and those who travel here to enjoy our two lakes want to make the most of this last chance to get in some fun on the water.

Give yourself some extra time, some extra space, and let’s make it a Labor Day event that is fun, and more importantly, safe, for everyone.

Starting next week, we locals will get several weeks of enjoying our lakes all to ourselves.

Enjoy this final holiday of the summer – and remember . . . “Let’s be careful out there!”

In the meantime – let’s take it outside for a few months!
