Volley Dawgs repeat – again

First order of business is of course a big congrats to Coach Kriek and her Volley Dawgs in picking up a District Championship, which was, of course, a repeat – again – so a “hat trick” of sorts.

The district wins over Russell and then Cumberland counties, sent our Volley Dawgs home with the championship hardware for the third straight year.

It also sent our Volley Dawgs into regional competition for the third straight year, and on Monday night, they handed Todd County a three-set defeat to advance to Wednesday’s semi-final round in the regional. We face South Warren Wednesday (October 30) in semi-final action, at 6:00 p.m. at Glasgow High School.

Congrats all around.

Of course the Volley Dawgs have their first state tournament berth in their sights. Good luck Dawgs.

Loss changes playoffs sight, but not the berth

The Bulldogs had a bad night Friday in a downpour on Bulldog Field, giving up a loss to Edmonson County, 13-0.

Although the loss was somewhat of an upset, it didn’t push the Dawgs out of the playoffs, it just changed the hopes of getting to host.

We do know that the Bulldogs will be traveling to Monroe County for the first round playoff game on November 8.

Before that, however, we still have one more outing in regular season play, and that game will see the Bulldogs bringing the season to a close on the home Bulldog Field.

The Dawgs play host to Jackson County Friday night with a 7:00 p.m. kickoff under what are predicted to be perfect Friday Night Lights conditions – clear skies with temperatures in the upper 30s.

Roundball is coming, Meet the Bulldogs in two weeks

Basketball will get off and running the first of December when the Bulldogs travel to Casey County on December 2. The first outing for our Lady Dawgs will be a double-header on Friday night, December 6, when we play host to Franklin-Simpson.

That being said, thoughts then turn to the traditional kick-off event, Meet the Bulldogs.

Plans are still being shored up, but we do know these tidbits for sure.

The event will be held either on Friday night, November 15, or Saturday night, November 16.

Wall of Fame inductees will see a pair of standout players going in from two completely different eras.

Jessie Parrish Stone was the floor general for the Lady Bulldogs in the late 2000s, playing for both Sam Gibson and Blake Button before graduating in 2009.

Danny Robinson was a big-man force to be reckoned with underneath the goal when he played for Lindle Castle in the late 1960s and early 1970 – graduating in 1970.

Both certainly deserve the honor of joining the Wall of Fame members and will be inducted in the final portion of this year’s Meet the Bulldogs program. More coming in the next couple of weeks, as things become finalized.

In the meantime-let’s take it outside while we still can!
