Back in early December, this might have looked like a second quarter score from a Camden boys basketball game. But Tuesday’s season-ending 41-27 victory over visiting Chapin shows just how much things have changed and how far the Bulldogs have come over the course of a 4-15 season under interim head coach Ron McKie Jr. Half-jokingly saying that he would "sleep a lot better tonight" after his team snapped a 10-game skid while winning their first Region 4-AAA game of the season, McKie said the 14-point victory was a good way to close out his first year as a head coach after taking over for his father, who led the Dogs to the 2008-09 AAA state title. "I’m excited for our guys," he said with a smile.
