Lady Pioneer basketball team looking good

Versatility has been the barometer for success for the Warren County High School girls basketball team during summer camps. Thus far, coach Shea Panter has been able to push all the right buttons while mixing and matching a deep roster.
The Lady Pioneers have amassed a 15-2 record while attending team camps at the University of Montevello and DeKalb County last week. Included in those victories was one over perennial powerhouse Cannon County, along with other big wins by both the varsity and junior varsity teams.
Coach Panter has been impressed with the quickness in which her Lady Pioneers have been able to work as a team and the group seems to be getting better everyday.
“We have different combinations that are working well together. We can go big and beat people inside or go small. On Thursday, a team came out in a zone and we shot them out of it,” said Panter. “We’re sharing the ball extremely well and it’s provided for balanced scoring. The girls are playing like a unit already and we’re just getting started. It’s fun to watch.”
The Lady Pioneers made their debut under Panter in Alabama at the new coach’s alma mater. While staying at University of Montevello for a three-day camp, Warren County was able to finish undefeated while taking on teams from out of state.
From the very start, coach Panter was surprised at how well her team has taken on the challenge of live games and thrived.
“It was good to see us for the first time against other teams. We’ve shown more strength than I anticipated, but it’s getting tougher everyday. We keep coming and working hard though,” said Panter.
It was at DeKalb County when the Lady Pioneers topped Cannon County, which has made trips to the state tournament in each of the last two seasons. The competition will only step up as Warren County continues its tours of team camps across the Midstate.
The Lady Pioneers will set out Sunday for Cookeville to take part in the Tennessee Tech camp. Warren County is slated to play Clark Range and Science Hill Sunday before facing Upperman, Oliver Springs, Jackson County and Monterey Monday and Tuesday.
The Lady Pioneers will conclude their camps at Middle Tennessee State University later next week.
