Rockets go for district title tonight

Senior Noah Dickerson (4) vs. Trigg earlier this season.
Crittenden County's boys' basketball team will be trying to win just their second Fifth District title in the last half century when they take on Trigg County tonight at Smithland. Tipoff is at 7pm.

Crittenden County has played in the district tournament championship 7 times since 1998, when it last won the championship. That league crown was the team's first since Marion and Crittenden County had consolidated in 1957.

Prior to the city and county consolidation, Crittenden County won five district titles between 1950 and 1957.

The Rockets' 1998 title came at the expense of Trigg County in an 8--61 triumph.
