Clarksville, TN – Wins became even more crucial in week five as Clarksville area teams dove headfirst into conference play.
It was business as usual for most of the teams at the top of the rankings, but some teams who started slow stepped up for the conference games. Only a few games remain before the holiday break and a chance for everyone to recharge.
