For the third time in seven seasons, the Clinton County Bulldogs were crowned Champions of the 4th Region in the Touchstone Energy All “A” Classic basketball system, earning them the right to continue in the tournament into this week’s state level finale of the event, the organization’s equilalent of the Sweet 16.
Clinton County picked up a 45-41 victory last Saturday night in the championship game against Glasgow, the same team that had defeated the Bulldogs in the 2012 championship game. The Bulldogs had earlier defeated Monroe County, 54-39, in semi-final action to earn the berth in Saturday night’s championship game.
The Bulldogs will now advance to the All “A” Classic State Tournament in Frankfort, Kentucky at the Frankfort Convention Center, where they will compete against 15 other regional champions from across the state.
The Bulldogs are set to take on Knott County Central of the 14th Region in a game that will tip-off at 7:00 p.m. Central time on Thursday. Tickets to Thursday’s opening round contest are being sold from the front office at Clinton County High School during regular school hours.
