The Lady Pioneers are still in search of their first District 6AAA victory.

Warren County was crushed by White County 70-32 Tuesday night, its fourth loss in as many district games. The loss also dropped the Lady Pioneers to 9-14 overall.

Scoring continues to be a challenge for the Lady Pioneers in district. For the third time in four games, Warren County failed to have a single player reach double figures. Senior Caylie Sherrell led the team with eight points, while Grace Rains and Tyra Wright each finished with six points.

The Warriorettes buried Warren County with a flurry of outside shooting. White County drained 10 3-pointers in the matchup, including getting four from Gracie Dodgen (16 points) and three from Kendreah Reeves (23 points).

White County built a 35-18 lead by halftime, then enacted the mercy rule when it led 62-27 after three quarters.

Former Boyd standout and current Warriorette freshman Alaina Stiles finished with nine points.

Rounding out the scoring for the Lady Pioneers was Megan Patch with five, Kam Nowlin with four, Beth Vaughn with two and Brielee Kesley with one.

Warren County will try to break its district slide Friday night at Stone Memorial. The Lady Panthers currently lead the district with a 3-1 record after beating Cookeville (also 3-1 in district) 65-58 Tuesday.
