Back on Friday the Carmi-White County Bulldog football team fell at home to the Flora Wolves by a final score of 30-24. The win for Flora improved their record to 5-4 and allowed them to sneak into the IHSA playoffs. The loss for the Bulldogs dropped their record to 7-2 to end the regular season, and it affected their playoff seeding. Carmi was granted the #8 seed in the southern 2A playoff bracket, and they will host the Athen Warriors at home on Saturday at 2 PM. The Warriors are also 7-2, they finished the regular season as the #5 ranked team in 1A, before being elevated to 2A for the postseason. If the Bulldogs win, they will travel to Decatur or Chester in round 2. Four other Black Diamond Conference teams will play in the playoffs next week. Sesser-Valier will host Central A&M in the 7/10 matchup in the 1A south bracket. The Fairfield Mules will travel to Virden North Mac in the 5/12 matchup in 2A, and the 2 seed Johnston City Indians will host 15 seeded Flora.
The Carmi-White County Lady Bulldog Volleyball team wrapped up their regular season at the Fairfield Tournament on Saturday. The Lady Dogs went 3-2 on the day, defeating Civic Memorial, Benton and Hamilton County. That two set win over the Foxes could loom large, as the Lady Bulldogs begin regional play tomorrow, and they very well could see the Lady Foxes again later on this week. Carmi will play the winner of Mt. Carmel vs Harrisburg tomorrow night in Mt. Carmel.
Congratulations to Carmi-White County cross country runners Tanner Spence and Gabbie Conover for advancing to sectionals. Spence finished in 6th place, Conover finished in 9th place at the Harrisburg regional on Saturday, advancing them both to the Benton sectional which will take place this Saturday.
