Clermont County’s high school varsity boys basketball squads are attempting to close out the regular-season portion of their respective campaigns, but bad weather has become a huge factor in determining when the regular-season will actually come to a conclusion.
Clermont Northeastern and Goshen were in the midst of a battle to win the Southern Buckeye Conference’s American Division championship, but the Warriors won out in an exciting league battle not decided until the very end. The other county contingents are eliminated from chances of winning their respective conference titles, but they are capable of doing well in the upcoming sectional tournaments.
Clermont Northeastern head coach Jerry Doerger recorded his 500th victory as a head varsity boys basketball coach.
