Bulldogs lock up SSC Red championship
The Bulldogs are back on top.
A season that began on a high note and has pretty much remained there paid its first dividends on Saturday when Richards officially locked up its third South Suburban Conference Red title in four years. The Bulldogs did so by defeating host TF North 8-3 in a conference crossover while their closest Red Division pursuer, Evergreen Park, was being shut out by SSC Blue leader Lemont.
“It’s been a very nice season,” Richards coach Brian Wujcik said. “I really did not anticipate us [having] the potential to go 17-2 [in league play].”
Wins over Argo this past Monday and Wednesday would give the Bulldogs that exact mark. While Wujcik certainly wasn’t about to assume success against the Argonauts before the games were played, the veteran boss figured everything would be fine if Richards simply followed the script.
