Posted February 12, 2013 at 9:18 pm


The Clinton County Lady Bulldogs won two games and dropped two this week, but the lesson that needs to be learned about the Lady Dawgs, is the team’s willingness to fight and strive to get better.

That lesson was evident in three games this week as Clinton County defeated McCreary Central on Tuesday, February 5, almost pulled off a win against Allen County/Scottsville Saturday night, and won against Taylor County on Monday night.
