2014 4th Region All "A" Tournament

By DragonFire - The Favorite Clinton County (11-5) - Last year, Clinton County avenged a tough loss to Glasgow in the 2012 All A Tournament with a win in the title game on their own floor to win the region for the first time since 2009 and third overall.

Their duo of Colby Langford and Keifer Dalton is not only the best 1-2 punch in the regional, but they may be the two best players playing in the entire tournament. The major negative the Bulldogs face is... Read More →
