Whiteout night set for tonight

There is a 100 percent chance Charlie Dalton Gym turns into a winter wonderland tonight.
The white stuff on the court won’t be snow though. It will be toilet paper as the Warren County High School basketball teams will be holding their third annual Whiteout night.
Fans will be able to shower the court with toilet paper during halftime of the boys game tonight, which is scheduled to start at 7:30 p.m.
It is the third year Warren County has held the event, although this year’s celebration will be different.
In the previous two years, fans would throw toilet paper on the court after the Pioneers hit their first shot. The result would be a technical foul, which gave the opponent two free throws.
With tonight’s game being a District 6-AAA contest, Warren County won’t be giving the Jets any free shots. The toilet paper will be thrown at halftime after a student shooting contest that has been done at each home game this season.
Students won’t have to worry about bringing their own toilet paper to the event as long as they have a Whiteout shirt. The shirts have been on sale and will be available tonight. The first 1,000 students who show up wearing their Whiteout shirt will be given a roll of toilet paper.
Warren County has been highly successful on Whiteout night thus far. The Pioneers defeated Trousdale County in the inaugural contest two years ago and defeated the Middle Tennessee Heat in last year’s contest.
Tonight’s event is a make-up night as the event was originally scheduled to take place against Cannon County in December. A scheduling conflict caused the event to be moved to tonight.
Fans are encouraged to wear white or they can purchase a shirt at the door while supplies last.
