The Warren County High School boys basketball team looks to improve this season, coming off a 16-win season a year ago, winning seven more games than the nine wins it had in the 2014-15 season.Led by head coach Chris Sullens, who is in his third year at the helm of the Pioneers, and assistant coaches Anthony Lippe, Raymond Shutt, Stephen Glenn and Adam Wood, the team looks to put on a show this season with key returning players such as junior Isaiah Grayson, senior Krojhn Calbert, junior Chance Hobbs, sophomore Sloan Seymour, senior McCall Turner, senior Isaac Golden, senior Logan Wilson and sophomore Tyree Ladet, among several other key contributors.Sullens talked about the minutes the Pioneers will have to replace on the court from their key contributors last season.“The minutes we will have to replace will be the ones Trevor Gaines and Holden Baker gave us last season. Those minutes will be interesting to see who gets them.”Sullens had some high praise for some of the key returners this season for the Pioneers.“Sloan Seymour is a sophomore guard that is really going to help this team this season. We like what we have with Tyree Ladet, Chance Hobbs, who is a kid that can flat out shoot the basketball and Krojhn Calbert is a kid that has grown leaps and bounds on the basketball court.”Sullens added, “Everyone knows about Krojhn on the football field but on the basketball court, he has played like a grown man so far and we are very excited to have him back this season.”Talking about the team and what he has seen out of his players so far this summer and about their recent success, Sullens said, “I think this year so far, I think our kids coming in have a little taste of success.
