They hit hard, and they played a very aggressivegame throughout. While it wasn't the best game that RBS we have played, the Bulldogs did play well defensively. They just couldn't seem to mount an effective offense. In any case, the Buulldogs we are headed to Greenbrier next week to play in the regional tournament.

Coach Butler would also like to congratulate Macon County High School's second place finish in their district. It's pretty cool that both teams from Macon county have the opportunity to continue to play in the post season.
