Dawgs record will show a win, season to end at home

Due to what was reportedly being a lack of player numbers, last week’s scheduled opponent, the Bulldogs of Red Boiling Springs, had to get out of last week’s game, resulting in a forfeit.

The result of the forfeit will officially show up on Clinton County’s record as a 1-0 defeat.

Up next, the Dawgs will finish the season with a trio of games on Bulldog Field, beginning with this Friday night’s matchup against Bracken County.

The “Polar Bears” come to Clinton County still looking for their first win on this season, bringing a 0-8 record to the field and coming off of a 41-0 loss to Bishop Brossart.

Kickoff is slated for 7:00 p.m.

A chance to cheer on the Runnin’ Dawgs

Foothills Festival is always a busy time for local residents, with everything to see, do and eat up around the square.

I always remind our readers that this weekend is also a chance to get behind some of our local athletes that we don’t often get the opportunity to shout for as they compete.

Get up early Saturday and make your way to Albany for the annual running of the Foothills Festival 5K.

With a field that for several years now has included more than 100 runners, many of those runners will be wearing the blue and white uniforms of the Clinton County High School Runnin’ Dawgs Cross Country team.

While most of the cheering from fans will be from the gathering near the finish line at Dyer Drug, you could post yourself anywhere along the route to give these runners a boost as they make their way along the route.

Registration for the 5K gets underway at 7:00 a.m. Saturday, with the starting siren slated to sound at 8:00.

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