Bulldogs win 4A region title

The Bulldogs took claim to the Class 4A region title Friday with a 80-71 victory over Wilson High School.

The No. 2 seeded Bulldogs hosted Wilson High School at The Kennel with the Class 4A region title at stake. King’s Fork wasted no time jumping out to a sizeable lead, with the score 11-2 with five minutes still to play in the first quarter. King’s Fork went up as much as 31-18 before Wilson started making a run of their own.

Despite numerous comeback attempts, Wilson never took a lead. Jayden Epps and Quentin Livingston made things difficult for Wilson all night, as Epps finished with 28 and Livingston finished with 23.

After a region semifinals win over Menchville High School, Coach Rick Hite felt it was going to be good for the Bulldogs to check off the region champion box, and they were able to do so.

As the region champions, the next game for the Bulldogs will be the Class 4 state quarterfinals. As the Class 4A champions, they will take on the Class 4B runner-up. The Bulldogs will take on the winner of Monacan and Courtland at Norfolk State University at 6 p.m. Friday.
