The Warren County freshman Pioneers will try and seize the moment in the district tourney at Charlie Dalton Gym this Saturday. The Pioneers earned a No. 2 seed just behind first place Stone Memorial. Warren County finished the freshman season with an overall record of 9-1 and a district record of 7-1.
The only team to defeat Warren County was the Warriors from White County by a mere four points. Freshman coach Stephen Glenn admitted he didn’t help his team in their only loss. Glenn received a technical foul near the end of the game and the Pioneers could not recover.
It was the only loss and Glenn told the Southern Standard his chances in the tournament are good despite losing key player Crockett Walker to a knee injury on Tuesday.
Glenn said, “Our goal is to get to a championship game and we have to outwork our opponent.”
The Pioneer freshman team is resilient and showed it against Cookeville. The Pioneers were down 12 points early against the Cavaliers and came back to win in overtime.
Glenn added, “This group might have to work harder than other groups but the guys are willing and right now they are focused on winning.”
The Pioneer staff is proud of the success of the freshman team and the future of Warren County basketball is bright. Warren County has an opportunity Saturday to make its mark and Glenn has encouraged his team to seize the moment.
The freshman Pioneers received a first-round bye. Warren County plays Saturday at 1:30 p.m. and will face the winner of the first-round game between White County and Cumberland County.
The championship game is scheduled to be played at 4:30 p.m.
