Lady Pioneers, Lady Wildcats pick up first-round victoriesFifth- and sixth-grade girls basketball got started with a bang Tuesday night at Charlie Dalton Gym.The Warren County Elementary League began with its annual 3-pt Club tournament and the winning teams were the league’s newest squad and one of the league’s founding teams.The Warren County Middle School girls team returned to the elementary league with a 20-11 win over the Centertown Lady Warriors while the Dibrell Lady Wildcats asserted their dominance with a 35-8 victory over the Irving College Lady Tigers.The Lady Pioneers have competed recently in the Central Tennessee Conference, but decided this season to return to playing local teams. The move paid off as Warren County got strong performances from Kaylee Chisam and Hailey Wood to win its first game.Chisam scored all eight of the Lady Pioneers’ points in the first half, then Wood took over with seven points in the third quarter to help hold off a rally by Centertown and Allison Cripps.The scoring was slow in the tournament’s first game as Chisam scored from the field and Cripps hit two free throws as the game was tied 2-2 after the first quarter.Chisam would explode for six points in the second quarter, all on layups, to help the Lady Pioneers take an 8-4 lead at halftime. Cripps hit the only shot for Centertown in the second period.Wood’s third-quarter outburst put the game out of reach.
