CARBON HILL — It’s been a while since the Carbon Hill Bulldogs made an appearance at the regional tournament.

Carbon Hill last made a regional tournament in 1998 when the Bulldogs lost to UMS-Wright 71-44 in the Southwest regional, which was held in Bay Minette, 13 years ago.

That streak ends today.

The Bulldogs will take on Clements High School at 7:30 p.m. in the Northwest Regional Tournament at Wallace State-Hanceville.

The game will mark Carbon Hill’s fourth ever region trip.

The 6th-ranked Bulldogs are hoping to turn their luck around after an 0-3 stint all time in region play. Carbon Hill’s last visit to the Northwest regional was in 1996 when the Bulldogs fell to Lauderdale County 78-60.

In 1997, the Bulldogs lost to top-ranked Francis Marion 67-65.

Carbon Hill (28-1) enters today’s contest riding a five-game win streak after topping Hanceville 53-37 in the Class 3A sub regional at Carbon Hill.

Clements enter the game at 17-13 having won three of its last four.
