The Carmi-White County boys basketball team had their season come to an end last night with a 73-47 loss against Vienna in the IHSA 2A Massac County Regional Semifinal. 

The Bulldogs battled in the first half, but Vienna’s high-powered style of play became too much for the maroon & white in the 3rd quarter as the Eagles began to pull away. 

It just wasn’t Carmi’s night, and Vienna rolled their way to another regional championship game appearance. 

The Bulldogs finish the season with a 24-8 record, and it was another historic season. 

The Bulldogs won the Black Diamond East for the 2nd consecutive season, they finished 3rd in the Eldorado Holiday Tournament and tied for a championship in the CWCIT. 

Congratulations to coach Kevin Wolff and the Bulldogs on an outstanding season, and congratulations to seniors Landon Driscoll, Trey Dixon and Macen Haywood on outstanding careers.
